Materials and Supplies

  • Canvas Tote Bag 
  • Cardboard 
  • Apples
  • Potato
  • Knife
  • Paint

Step 1 The Apple

Important! Place a piece of cardboard inside the tote bag to keep any paint from seeping though. 

Cut an apple in half. Dab in craft paint, making sure to cover entire half of apple. Then gently place onto canvas tote bag, pressing down firm. For best outcome, test apple stamp on extra fabric first. 

Step 2 The leaf 

Cut a piece of potato in half. With a marker, draw a leaf shape. Then cut away the sides of the potato, leaving your leaf shape intact.  

Dip your new leaf stamp into paint, and place on top of your apple print. 

Step 3 Totes Complete 

Once your tote is dry, you are ready to go apple picking.
