Apple and Pear Prints

Everybody knows about stamping with potatos and foam, but here’s another method for making fun prints.


Pear and apple
Cushioning for paper


Cut an apple and/or a pear in half, making sure the cut is smooth. Using a paint brush apply the paint evenly over the cut side of the fruit. Use any paper, but place it on a smooth, soft surface like a folded dishtowel or old tee shirt. The paper needs to be pliable to absorb the paint. With the cut side down, stamp the surface of the paper. With each stamping the image is less vivid so reapply the paint regularly.

Draw stems and leaves with markers. Stamping has many possibilities for gift cards, wrapping paper, tee shirts.

Our website was created by a mother and daughter team, adding a unique combination of crafting qualities and expertise of creativity. We started our website after numerous years in the area of craft, teaching, retail craft and owning a gift store. We decided to launch it to provide resources for teachers, therapists, and craft enthusiasts in the year 1999. Since then, the website has grown tremendously in terms of content and resource information.
