~* Papercraft Star Challenge #9 - Photo Inspiration *~

Hi Everyone!
Okay, how many of your LOVE caramel apples?? I love them, hee hee. So, when I saw the photo inspiration (from Urban Design Etsy Shop) for this week's challenge at Papercraft Star, all I could think about was caramel apples :).

~Paper: SU! kraft cardstock, white cardstock
~Stamps/Stamping: SU! apple stamp, SU! pens, SU! ink pad, Distress ink
~Misc.: Making Memories buttons, Hero Arts felt flowers, Ribbon and burlap string (thanks, Sam!)

1. Use SU! pens to color the apple stamp and stamp three times in a row and one off to the side. Cut the white cardstock in a rectangular shape around three of the apples. Cut around the the fourth apple close to the image.
2. Distress the white cardstock with Distress Ink. Adhere the fourth apple over the middle apple with foam tape. Ink the edges of the kraft cardstock.
3. Adhere the yellow striped trim, then the piece of cardstock with the apples on it.
4. Tie bows through the buttons with the twine. Adhere the buttons on to the yellow striped ribbon.
5. Adhere the felt flowers.

Hope you're enjoying the summer months! Have a Happy Friday!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
