With the newest challenge at Unstampabelles - Anything but a Card (paper craft) this month I finally got to create something that has been on my 'To Do' list for a while. I have used a paperback book to make this apple shape using the wonderful tutorial from Cheeky Magpie. I didn't have any re-inkers to colour the edges of the pages like Cheeky Magpie suggests so I used my Stampin Up inkspots and acrylic paints. To create the template for the apple shape I used a piece of 3mm/4mm thick chipboard. Using a piece of copy paper I lined up the edges and then drew a complete apple with half appearing on the chipboard. Then cut the apple shape out from the chipboard and used that on the book. I must admit that as the cuts went deeper a slight angle was happening with each cut of the pages. Although you don't seem to see the slight size difference in the pages when they a spanned out to form the apple.
Sticker Store is sponsoring us again with another fantastic sticker prize pack.
So be sure to pop on over to Unstamapbelles (challenge #22) and see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team came up with and add your entry to the list.
I am really happy with this Apple I have to share it with:
