I got a little “crafty” with my SU Apron of Love Bundle this morning.
I was looking over my Designer Series Paper that was retiring
and came across this design in the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper…
I have been wanting to make a craft apron and this was perfect DSP.
I fussy cut a few pencils out of the DSP, added some Flirty Flaming cardstock to the scissors
from the Apron Builder Framelits, and added some crafty sentiments
(or slogans as my friend Robin called them…lol).
Have you seen any of the cards made using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder for a pie top?
They are just so cute! I remember when I got mine, my first thought was a lattice pie top.
As it kept popping up in blogland, I decided to use the idea on this card.
I used the pretty Tutti Frutti and Wood Textues 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper Stacks to create
a rustic background for my Lemon Lime Twist apron. The smallest Stitched Shapes circle and the
new 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch made my cute little pie. I used a scrap of retired Real Red ribbon.
The apple image is found in the SU Picnic with You Bundle.
Seemed appropriate, don’t you think?
Here is a little treat holder I made using the SU Apron of Love Bundle.
Just a little unexpected treat you can give to a special person in your life.
The treat holder can hold 3 or 4 Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares nicely.
It is quite simple to make a little box on the bottom to hold the treat.
Here is a video I made to show you some tips and tricks:)
Two Dapper Denim Aprons on a 3″ x 5-1/4″
Dapper Denim Box Bottom 3-3/4″ x 4-1/2″ scored in 1-1/4″ on all four sides
Whisper White Lace and Gingham DSP for pocket: 1-1/2″ x 2″
Real Red and Silver Foil Utensils: 2″ x 2″
Silver Baker’s Twine: 8″
I think Valentine’s Day should be celebrated every day and in every way!
Let’s never miss an opportunity to share our love with a special thanks to a friend!
I made another checkered bottom on my card but this time with a white background! Just adhere five 3/4″ black squares to the bottom of the Whisper White 3-3/4″ x 5″ panel. I used a lot of the dies from the Apron Builder Framelits for this card- the apron, the neck strap, the waist ties, the oven mitt, the pockets, the baking utensils, the trim on the bottom of the apron, and even the hearts. What a super bundle! I think this card can be unisex, too. Add in those BBQ tools- the classic red and black fits both guys and gals! Just stamp DAD on the apron, and you have a Valentine for him or a Father’s Day card!
