Supplies Needed:
  • One sheet of 12x12 cardstock or 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock
  • Apple Silhouette Border Punch
  • Pens: Red and Green brushed tips; Black fine tip; Tan brush tip
  • Straight Edge Ruler


  1. Take your Apple silhouette punch and punch an apple along the bottom of the cardstock in the center. Next, flip your apple punch over on the backside and continue to punch on each side of the center apple punched on your page until you are within the last inch of the edge of your paper. I was able to fit seven apples along the bottom of the 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock. By flipping the punch over you can line the punch up closer to the one you have just punched. You may want to practice on scrap paper lining up the punch close to each other before doing the actual page.
  2. Take your straight edge ruler and black fine line pen and draw a line all the way around your page starting at the outer edge of your apple silhouette punch, continue up and around your page to the other side of the line of apples. (I drew the line about 1/4 " in from the edge along the sides and top of the page.)
  3. Repeat step 2 a second time about 1/4 " inside of the other drawn line.
  4. Next, draw little "S's" close together inside of the two lines all the way around to create a wood carved effect. The beginning and the end of your "S" should touch the edge of your two drawn lines.
  5. Take your black fine line pen and add dashed lines around the edge of the circles of each apple silhouette.
  6. Take your red brush tip marker and place three dots close to each other between the outside edge of your page and the frame, repeat this design scattered along all four sides.
  7. Color the Apples in with the red and green brushed tip pens. And the frame with the tan brush tip.
  8. You are now ready to add pictures and journal.
