Hi everyone!  Amanda here today with a bright and cheery decor idea that will make you wish summer was already here!  I couldn't resist the delightful little fruits in Doodlebug's new Fruit Stand collection.  Everything looked so juicy and yummy I was eager to bring those papers to life! 

Several die cuts and folds later, I had a basket full of delicious-looking 3D paper fruit.  Wouldn't this be perfect as a centerpiece at a summer party or picnic?  

Add a tag to this fun basket and it would also make a fun gift.  I made a bright and stripey coordinating tag with a play on words.  I used a fine-tipped Sharpie pen to add fun faces to the fruit cocktail Doodle Pop dimensional stickers.  

Hello, cute fruit! 

3D fruit is super easy to make.  For each fruit, I die cut or punched 8 of each fruit, folded each down the middle, and then adhered each piece back to back.  When choosing cut files, choose shapes that are symmetrical.   

Since all of the fruit was tucked into a basket, here are some more detailed photos of each fruit. 
Click HERE for the pear cutting file and click HERE for the apple cutting file.  I used THIS file to cut the leaves. 

To add a bit of authenticity to each fruit, use real twigs as stems.  I used a 3" round punch for the orange and THIS file for the lemon and lime. 

 I used a 1" circle punch for the cherries and THIS file for the cherry leaves.  I used THIS file for the strawberries and a 3/4" circle punch for the blueberries.  The blueberry leaves are stickers from the Fruit Stand collection.  

I used THIS file for the pineapple.  Cute little paper pineapple, huh?  

Which 3D fruit is your favorite and what would you make it for? 

Supplies: Fruit Stand collection, Petite Prints (yellow, green)
