It’s fall, y’all. At least that’s that the calendar says. The temps here in Miami say otherwise. Oh, what I wouldn’t do for a crisp breeze and excuse to wear a pair of boots. But alas, tank tops will have to do. With absolutely no fall weather to speak of, I’m crafting up my own version of autumn in the simpliest way possible: paper punch apples. You are gonna love these. They are incredibly easy to make!

Step It UpAs with any of the paper punch shapes that I share on the blog, you can use these in a ton of different ways to dress up cards, tags and packaging. In the spirit of beautiful fall gifts, I used one of the apples to dress up a burlap tag that I created with a scrap of leftover fabric.

Top it with an apple and wrap it up in cellophane. The finished gift is beautiful, but oh so easy to pull together in just a few minutes.

  1. These are adorable! I was wondering what you used to shade your apples — Copic markers, pencil? It makes such a difference in how they look, and I’d love to know how you did it! Thanks!

    1. I use copics for the shading! It’s a technique I use on a lot of the Easy Like Sunday Morning posts. Such a simple addition to your project, but like you said, it makes a huge difference! If you look through some of the other Easy Like Sunday Morning posts, you’ll see how I’ve used the copics for shading on other projects. Hope this helps!
