A Homespun Affair - September Edition

Hello! It's time for another edition of A Homespun Affair! I hope you have enjoyed all of the editions in the past! This edition is just as full of projects and inspiration like the others!

This month I decided to create a 3D apple since it's the season to go back to school. I myself will be going back to work in a few days, so this project was very appropriate! You can get all the directions on how to create this 3D apple in this month's edition of A Homespun Affair. The paper used comes from DCWV (Grade school paper pack). 

I used the outer layer of an apple from the cartridge Potpourri Basket. I hid the inner layers using my Gypsy. 

Check out how I used this same apple three different ways! 

Instead of making a full apple, keep it flat and adhere it to the front of a mini album or mini notebook for a splash of color and a touch of texture.

I used the same technique to make this mini apple as a tag for this backpack. The backpack was made using the Campin' Critters cartridge. The twine holding the apple comes from 3 Girls Jam. 

I hope I have inspired you to be become creative! And if you decide to create a 3D apple of your own, link it back to my blog! Also, don't forget to check out this month's challenge at A Homespun Affair.
