Take a bite out of your day and make some adorable 3D apples with your ScanNCut.

You will need:

Patterned paper 12” x 12”, plain green cardstock, ScanNCut, glue, ruler. Makes Three Apples

Steps:

  1. Download “3D_Apples.fcm” to your machine.
  2. Affix a 12” x 12” piece of patterned paper to a low-tack mat.
  3. Cut out the design.
  4. Repeat this process 5 more times with different patterns and paper colors.
  5. For each apple, collect 12 cut outs. You can alternate colors in each apple (e.g. use 6 cutouts with a light pattern and use 6 cutouts with a dark pattern) if desired.
  6. Fold each cutout in half, making sure the crease folds right down the middle of the apple shape.
  7. Glue the inside halves of each apple to their neighboring inside halves, letting the apple form its 3D, accordion-like shape. Close the circle, making the apple into a 3D shape that stands up on its own.
  8. Go to your machine and look up its built-in patterns. Find a simple leaf pattern and size it to 1” height. Repeat the leaf shape 3 times
  9. Place plain green cardstock down onto the mat. Cut out the designs.
  10. Use a tiny bit of glue to secure one leaf to the top of each apple.
  11. Done!
