How cute is this? Wouldn't it make an awesome little hostess gift filled with Holiday recipes? This idea came from a share by Liane Peden on the yahoo group StampinUpLNStampers. I loved her idea so I gave it a few tweaks to make it my own.
I know you are going to want to make one, so I just went ahead and created a tutorial. (Idea was Liane's but this tutorial is all Ellen's - Liane probably has a much easier way to explain/create this)
Chocolate Chip Cardstock - 5 ¾ x 11Score at 10 ¼, 5 ¾, 5, and ½ inches
Turn paper and score at 5 inches
Snip the scored lines – up to the last score line (you are snipping up ¾ of an inch). This is what forms the bottom of the apron box.
Cut away 2 ½ inches from the top of the apron box EXCEPT for the 4 ½ inch wide front of the apron.
Attach two jumbo eyelets with crop-a-dile. Insert approximately 7 inches of red 5/8 grosgrain ribbon. Secure with tape. Cover the ribbon ends on the “inside” of the apron with square scrap of cardstock approximately 2 inch square.
