Hello friends! Today I am sharing a fun back to school craft, that is easy enough for your children to help out.  With some children heading back to school, this is the perfect apple to bring to a teacher, without worry of it going bad.

First we are going to need to cut some circles.  However you decide to cut them is fine, you can manual die cut them, electronically cut them, or trace a circle onto paper and cut out with scissors. I used the Daydream Believer pattern paper from the Fancy Pants Designs Dream Big collection.  For this project 16 3.5inch circles were used, which was almost two sheets of paper. Once the circles are cut out, score them in half.

Since you will want the red side of the pattern paper to show, place adhesive onto the “b” side of the paper.

For a little more depth, and also to cover any white parts of the paper showing, ink the edges of the paper using red ink.

Using the Follow Your Dreams pattern paper, create a stem and leaves.  For the stem, I just rolled up a scrap of the paper, and I freehand cut the leaves with scissors.
Attach the stem into the apple and adhere the leaves and die cut from the Dream Big Ephemera set to the stem.
This was so easy to make, and I hope it inspires you to create one too!
