Make three dimensional honeycomb shapes using symmetrical punches or dies.
- Symmetrical punch or die shape, Stampin' Up! Full Heart Punch used here
- Leaf and stem punch or die shape, Stampin' Up! Bird Punch used here
- Dye Inks, Stampin' Up! Lucky Limeade and Cherry Cobbler used here
- Bone Folder
With a heart punch or die, punch 25 shapes out of a lightweight patterned paper.
Trim the point off the punched shapes, trimming about 1/4" from the bottom of the heart.
Cut up to ten at a time to make them even, depending on thickness of paper.
Fold each heart in half, being careful to fold precisely.
Put adhesive on one side of each folded heart, and adhere next heart to it, being very careful to line up the shapes along the straight, folded edge.
Adhere all 25 hearts together.
Sponge the edges of each heart, using Lucky Limeade ink on the top half of each apple shape, Cherry Cobbler on the bottom.
This is what your apple will look like when it's finished.
Holding your patterned paper and brown cardstock together, punch just the leaf and stem with the bird punch.
Finish your card
Use heavy weight glimmer paper with fewer shapes for a glittery honeycomb shape.
