There are some moments in Disney movies that are so iconic that they take on a life of their own, transcending the context of the scene they appear in. The few seconds in which the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs pulls a bright red apple from a vat of poison and reveals the dripping face of a skull, has to top the list. Craft an ode to this frightful scene with a simple Halloween DIY, in which we transform the poison apple into a spooky card, perfect for a Disney-loving friend.
- Gather your supplies. You’ll notice that this craft requires a print-out stencil. You can download the stencil here. Print two copies if you’re planning on giving your card a three-dimensional look.
- Cut out your stencil and trace it onto your white and brown sheets of paper. Cut the traced shapes out of your paper.
- Cut a small slit along the dotted line in the center of your white shape, then fold your shape so that the two sides meet. Cut your brown shape completely in half.
- Fold a sheet of red paper in half and cut into a circular shape to create the circular body of your card. Optional: If you want to create an envelope instead of a card, leave two tabs, as pictured below.
- Leaving your folded piece of white paper cut-out face down, use glue or dimensional tape to attach the halves of brown paper you cut out. Make sure to place them slightly off center. This will create a subtle shadow effect once you flip your paper around.
- Fit your red circular card into your folded paper ” drips,” gluing the back of your red card to the brown craft paper backing.
- Create a stem for your apple by cutting a small rounded rectangle out of brown paper and slipping it into the slit you cut into your white paper. Secure it in place with glue and finish with a small twine bow.
- Optional: Open your card and write your favorite, spooky Halloween quote inside.
