DIY: Poison Apple Card Inspired by Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs


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.


  1. 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.
  2. Cut out your stencil and trace it onto your white and brown sheets of paper. Cut the traced shapes out of your paper.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.diy-poison-apple-1
  5. 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.
  6. Fit your red circular card into your folded paper ” drips,” gluing the back of your red card to the brown craft paper backing.
  7. 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.diy-poison-apple-2
  8.  Optional: Open your card and write your favorite, spooky Halloween quote inside.
