Creating the bowl of Apples

Make Bowl using 3D revolve effects and a line either with the pen or pencil (your choice)

Move apples into bowl
Using the pen tool, create a mask around the part of the apples that you want to show.
In the Layer Palette, show all sub-layers, and select the mask and all three apples (CTRL + Click)
Right click on the mask, select, Create Mask
Draw the stems by using the paintbrush and select the charcoal brush style

Mapping Artwork on 3D Revolve Effects
Create bowl using 3D revolve effects and a line (Must use the pen tool as mapping art only works with 3D effects that have the pen open boxes)
Put an image of a flower in the symbols palette by dragging one from the library
Create a string of them, highlight the entire string, and drag it into the Symbol palette 

Click on Map Artwork in the 3D dialog box
Find the surface where you want to put the string of flowers (the lighter sections are the ones that are visible, you may have to use trial and error)
Select the string of flowers and make sure it goes the length of the bowl

Create 2 other 3D objects with graphic symbols going around the object
