  • Printable apple card craft pattern & "About Me" template
  • Card stock or construction paper red, green, brown
  • 1 jumbo wooden craft stick
  • Glue stick
  • Pencil & scissors


  1. Start by printing the apple card pattern and "about me" card template (available free here with all of our printable kids craft templates). Once you've printed these two sheets, cut out each piece of the pattern and cut off the top of the apple along the dotted line.

  2. Have child fill out the "about me" card and glue your child's photo to the "about me" card in the top left corner.

  3. Trace the apple pattern, apple top, and the "about me" card backing onto red card stock. Cut out the pieces.

  4. Trace the apple leaf onto green card stock and the apple stem onto brown card stock and cut out the pieces.

  5. Use any color card stock to cut out a piece as wide as your apple and about 1" tall. This will be a tab you'll use to keep the pop-up piece attached to your apple.

  6. Glue the leaf and stem to the top apple piece.

  7. Glue the "about me" card your child completed on top the red rectangle you cut out. Glue this card to a jumbo wooden craft stick. Glue your top apple piece (with leaf and stem) to the top of your "about me" card.

  8. Secure your tab cut from scrap paper to the back of your apple. Be sure to only glue the edges of this tab so you can slide your "about me" card in between the apple and the tab.

  9. Decorate the front of your apple card.
