Apple Card and Tag

This folded apple note card with a matching gift tag is made from cardstock in natural red, ivory, brown, and green. Ideal to send as a birthday greeting for children or simply to say hello to a friend. You might also like to make a batch of these for gift-giving.


Approximate Time: 30 minutes


  • 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in red, ivory, brown, and green
  • double-sided adhesive
  • white paper
  • envelope

  3. Use the half-slice apple pattern to cut from ivory cardstock. Adhere.
  4. Draw seeds from brown cardstock. Cut out. Adhere centrally onto card.

I really like the idea of the apple card and tag,but when I tried to print out the patterns they were huge. Any ideas on how to get the correct size would be helpful. Judy
