Apple Stamped Apples Craft Step by Step Directions

Begin by making snips in a brown paper lunch bag.

Cut strips from brown paper bag.

And cut into strips.

Position strips on cardstock.

Now, position a few strips going across on a sheet of cardstock.

Form a cross hatch basket pattern and glue in place.

Then, use a few more strips to weave under, over and under the other strips, forming a cross hatch basket pattern. Glue in place.

Cut apple in half.

This next step is for adults only. Carefully slice an apple in half.

Dip each half of apple in paint color.

Next, place a few generous squirts of paint onto a flat surface. We like to use a paper plate. Leave enough room in between colors to allow space for your apple.

Stamp the apples onto the cardstock above the basket.

Dip the apple into the paint, and firmly press it onto the paper, in the area of the woven basket.

Continue stamping with all the colors.

Repeat stamping apples of all of the colors.
