Pinkalicious Blog Hop - My Pink Stamper!

Welcome to my blog and to the September My Pink Stamper Pinkalicious Blog Hop. I'm so excited to share my 3-D project with you...I've made a version of an Apple Box too!

Where I live, there is an area nearby called Apple Hill. Every Fall, the apple farmers open up roadside shops and sell apples...and homemade apple pies...and apple dumplings...and apple butter...and you name it. It's fun to take the family up to Apple Hill for a few hours to go to the different farms...shopping at the craft fairs and picking pumpkins at the pumpkin patch.

This year, I'm going to get some extra apple goodies for my apple boxes and give them away as gifts. My apple box is large enough to hold a fresh apple hill APPLE...but, I think I'll go with a caramel one! What a treat that will be!


Materials Used:

Cricut Cartridges - Sweet Tooth Boxes and Flower Shoppe
Sentiments Stamp - My Pink Stamper School Days
Cardstock - DCWV (Red, Brown, White and Green Glitter)
Kraft Patterned Paper - My Mind's Eye
Tag Punch - Creative Memories
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Raffia
Baker's Twine
Green Button

I've used the Ice Cream Sundae cut from the Cricut cartridge - Sweet Tooth Boxes to create my apple, cut at 10.71". The leaves are from the Flower Shoppe cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your next hop is to Courtney's amazing blog...Court's Crafts!
