These apples look mouthwatering!

These apples look so fresh and crisp that you could almost eat them. I’ve also seen these photo realistic papers with photos of strawberries, pasta, coffee beans, chocolate, sprinkles, and other yummies.

How to make scrapbook paper wall art

I used apples for my Green Apple Wall Art, but pasta or chocolate would be fun, too.

I bought my papers at Jo-Ann Stores. If that’s not convenient for you, I found that online retailer SugarTree sells scrapbook papers with red apples.

I also fell in love with a paper with river rocks – so cool and refreshing. This paper and wall art would look beautiful just about anywhere, from a front hallway to a bedroom or family room. The instructions for the River Rock Wall Art are on, too.

Happy crafting.

    I think this will be another project for me to do. One question is “what do you do with the sides”? I just planned to leave as is, which is white. I really don’t want to paint them. Any ideas to share? Beautiful idea…I agree, some paper is too lovely to cut up. Thanks for sharing. Joan

      I have a very easy solution for you — 1″ wide ribbon (grograin, satin, or what have you) is perfect to wrap around the edges. You can simply pin and glue on end, wrap the ribbon around your foam sheet, pinning and gluing when needed, and voila, you’re done. Have fun with this one! Sharon

        Thank you for your quick response. I will most likely try this because I have a lot of scrapbook paper to “play” with. lol
