Apples are the perfect back to school symbol to remind the kids the big day is coming! I personally decorate for all the big events, even if it’s just a small corner or in this case the mantel. It gets the kids excited for what’s coming! I whipped these cute little apples up using my Spellbinders Platinum, burlap, scrapbook papers and twine. They make a darling banner, work great for bookmarks, fun first day of school lunch box notes, and so much more!
Supplies to Craft Burlap Apples
- Spellbinders Platinum Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
- Shapeabilities Die, Market Fresh
- Burlap Scrapbook Paper (backed in red and brown)
- Green Scrapbook Paper (two colors)
- Red & White Twine
- Glue Gun (low temp if you’re letting the kids help)
One of the things that I love about my Spellbinders Platinum is that it’s so easy to use. Nothing complicated to figure out, just choose my materials and go. Let me show you how to make this darling banner in this quick video!
If you don’t already own a Spellbinders Platinum Machine, there are a few options:
And there are a few accessories. I personally want to get the dust cover. It comes in two different colors and I’m leaning toward the natural color… although that dark grey is pretty too!
