Our DIY this month is a book page apple. It works best if you have a fairly thick paperback book. Go ahead and rip the cover off of the book. Then draw a half apple shape on one side and begin cutting through as many pages at a time as you can. We usually use an exacto knife for this, but this time I just used heavy duty scissors and lifted about 15 pages up at a time to cut through.

Try to keep your cuts as lined up as possible. When your done cutting through the whole book, ink the edges with red ink.

Then glue a small stick in the middle of the binding of the book.

I just used hot glue to glue the stick on. On some of them, I cut out leaves from burlap and glued those in the middle too. Then, I used PVA glue to glue the pages from each side together. Keep bending the binding back and forth to get the pages to spread out and I actually used clothes pins on mine for a while to hold the pages closed where they tended to want to open up.
