First Day of School Card!

Hi!  Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with my Apple project.  My inspiration came from this month's issue of Creating Keepsakes Magazine.  One of the layouts had a bunch of squares with apple punches out of the middle of them.  I don't have an apple punch, but I do have a Gypsy!!!

This paper came from a K&Co. stack of paper.  I really liked the block look.  The blocks were all 2" squares, so I lined up six rows of six apples on my mat.  I used the apples from Plantin Schoolbook at 1 inch.

After I took the paper off I saw these apples and my project shifted.  I decided to make a card instead of a layout so I could use these apples!

Here is how the paper looked.  I wish I would have made the apples a little bigger but I still like it!

I used my corner rounded on the blocks.

I put a little apple in the inside!

I put a scrap of red behind two of the squares and tied some twine around the smaller apples.  I am going to give this card to my son's kindergarten teacher!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
