Project

Apple Picture Frame

Introduction

Use paper and an apple craft punch to create a frame for displaying school-day memories.

Materials

  • 12-by-12-inch school days multimedia pad, available from Martha Stewart Crafts at Michaels
  • Apple craft punch
  • 1/4-inch double-sided adhesive foam dots
  • 0.5 millimeter fine-tip writing pen (sepia)
  • Double-sided tissue tape
  • Craft knife
  • 12-by-12-inch cutting mat
  • Wooden frame

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Remove the glass from the frame and apply double-sided tape around the outer edges and around the opening.

  2. Step 2

    Place a piece of brown paper with white dots face down on a cutting mat. Carefully lay the frame, adhesive side down, onto the paper and press. Use a craft knife to cut excess paper from outside and inside of the frame.

  3. Step 3

    Punch 2 apples from solid-red paper, 3 from red paper with white dots, and 5 from solid-green paper. Cut stems and leaves from all the red and red-dotted apples, and adhere these apples onto the green ones. Alternate solid and dotted apples evenly across the bottom of the frame, adhering dotted ones with foam dots.

  4. Step 4

    Write "is" and "for" on lined stickers from the multimedia pad. Use foam dots to adhere a red "A" sticker to the top left side of the frame, followed by the lined stickers.

  5. Step 5

    Replace glass and add photo.
