Apple Core Spool Card

Instead of going to the store to find your teacher appreciation gift ideas, make your own with paper crafts. This Apple Core Spool Card is a great teacher gift because it is an innovative way to make a clever thank you card. Not only will you create a card that looks like an apple core, but you will make it with thrifty materials like wooden spools and brown scrap paper. The idea is so simple and so sweet. Your child's teacher is sure to keep this card on their desk for years to come!

Apple Core Spool Card


  • Large Wood Spool
  • Red Craft Paint
  • White Paper or Cardstock
  • Adhesive
  • Scalloped Border Punch
  • White Thread or Twine
  • 1/4 Heart Punch
  • Brown Cardstock

Apple Core Spool Card

  1. Paint a large wooden spool (from the craft store) red and set aside to dry.
  2. Type or handprint a thank you note on a strip of white paper or cardstock one half inch wider than the spool's interior. Leave an empty space at the beginning wide enough to wrap around spool once.
  3. Run a scalloped border punch down both sides of strip.
  4. Adhere beginning of strip to spool (I used glue dots) and wrap around once adhering again so spool is covered. Wrap message around spool and tie closed.
  5. Punch a 1/4 inch heart and cut in half. Glue to core for seeds.
  6. Roll a rectangle of brown cardstock and insert into center. Add glue to secure if shifting.
