Craft: 

Use the negative from an Apple die cut or from cutting out your own apple) and contact paper to make a “stained glass” effect. Place the negative on one piece of contact paper. This should leave you a sticky surface to color in the apple with tissue paper. Red, green and brown tissue paper can make it look like a real apple; or you can use a rainbow of colors for a fun effect.
