A Little Something Apple - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Stampin' UP Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! 
We are in the middle of our September 2015 box from Stampin' UP. 
This box was FULL of super fun holiday products 
from the NEW Stampin' UP Holiday Catalog!!!!!  
I absolutely love this catalog!!!!!
I am so blessed that I get to create with these amazing products and share with you all here! Remember that every Thursday of each week, all 13 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Now on to my Stampin' UP Facebook showcased project for September....
We were to use the Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies, the A Little Something stamp set or the Cheer All Year stamp set for this week's project! I have to say...I LUV THIS BUNDLE!

If you remember this POST back from last year, you'll remember that I love apples and the FALL apple picking season!  I immediately saw an apple in this Pillow Box and had to give it a shot. Not only did I do a Real Red apple, but why not a green with Cucumber Crush , a yellow with Crushed Curry and a reddish orange with Tangerine Tango. All are sponged with Real Red for added dimension. I filled them with classic chewy caramel pieces. I love that you can see them thru the vellum cardstock window.

Here are some tutorials to follow and make your own pillow box apples!
**To make the pillow box apple window follow this step by step tutorial.





**To make the slit for the apple stem follow this step by step tutorial.



**To make the apple seeds, follow HERE to see how to make them.

Now add your seeds to the front, stamp a matching color tag with the A Little Something Stamp set, a Basic Black Baker's Twine bow and your done!

Are you still reading at this point? Well if you are...WAIT! To sweeten this super long post, what about some Blog Candy like the "A Little Something" stamp set?
