An Apple A Day

Autumn greetings in August!  Today I have an altered paper
 mache apple box that I dressed in SEASONS: AUTUMN
by Authentique Paper
blog.authentiquepaper.com

I traced the box's bottom and top part of the lid onto the desired paper and cut out.  
Use a thin layer of glue to attach the papers to the box.
A bone folder helps to form the paper when you come to the leaves and stem.

I found that it was easier to cover the side of the lid with trims rather than trying to attach paper.

I kept the design on the front simple by layering on frame stickers and sentiment.
Looking for flowers?  These paprika colored mulberry flowers by Petaloo match perfectly.  I tied on a corduroy button with jute string and also added a bow of the same
string to the cluster of flowers.

Authentique Product: Seasons:Autumn-  Components 6X12 Sticker Sheet; 
Autumn Two Paper; Autumn Three Paper

Makes me ready for Fall and fresh apple pie!  Hope you've enjoyed!
