Geometric Fall Apple Decor

Good Monday morning friends! It’s Aly Dosdall here again, and I don’t know about you, but I am so excited that fall officially begins this week! In fact we’re all so excited here at We R that we’ll be featuring fall projects from our design team all week long. So if you’re in the mood for some fall crafting inspiration, you’re in luck!

I’m getting things started this week with an easy fall decor idea. Recently I was browsing Pinterest and came across a lovely fall vignette featuring white pumpkins and green apples. I just loved the pairing, but wanted to come up with a different twist on the idea, so I decided to make geometric paper apples using the Trim and Score Board together with the Triangle Score Guide for my fall decor.

To make my geometric apples I started with three 12×12 sheets of apple green cardstock. The Triangle Score Guide comes with a detailed instruction booklet. It’s important to read it all the way through before making your shapes. That helps a lot.

As stated in the instructions for 2 inch icosahedrons, I placed my 12×12 paper in the Trim and Score Board and scored every 2 inches. Then I folded over the bottom left corner of my paper. That helps to make sure the paper is placed correctly as you follow the instructions.

Then I removed the paper and placed the Triangle Score Guide on the Trim and Score Board flush against the top with the left edge lined up at 9 inches, and the right edge lined up at 3 inches as seen below. Then I placed my paper into the Triangle Score Guide with the folded corner at the bottom of the board. I made my first score line at 8 inches, and then scored every two inches on both side of the 8 inch mark.

I removed my paper and flipped the Triangle Score Guide over so the back was facing upward, lining up the edges as before at 9 and 3 inches. I placed my paper on the board lining it up with the Triangle Score Guide so that the folded corner was on the left side of the board. I scored my first line at the 4 inch mark, and then I scored every 2 inches on either side of the 4 inch mark again.

Then I removed the paper from the board and folded all the score lines to extend them all out to the edge of the paper.

Then I flipped the paper upside down, and with my pen I drew the design in the instruction booklet for 2 inch icosahedrons on my paper so I knew where to cut. Then I cut out the design with my scissors, added Sticky Thumb Red Double Sided Tape to all the tabs, and assembled my 3D shapes.

To finish off my green apples I added papers stems and leaves.

I love the geometric shapes and the fall feel of the apples. What a super easy and cool fall project!
