Just Us Girls - Template Challenge

This week it's template week with Just Us Girls and I got to pick the challenge. I have always loved apron cards! I remember making them all the time many years ago and just recently getting back into it. It's a fun one you don't want to miss. There is a fabulous apron template HERE at Mirkwood Designs. Mirkwood also has a great blog HERE you don't want to miss.

Here is what I came up with:

So I went with the basic arpon template but I didn't create the slit in front per say. Instead I used pattern paper (DCWV) to create a pocket in which I put a little tag to match. I also created a fold which wraps to the back and creates a second pocket.


My images are all by Unity Stamp Co from their June Kit of the Month. My solid paper is by Stampin Up.

Be sure to swing on by Mirkwood Designs and check out this fabulous template to play along with JUGS. This is such a fun versatile template to play with.

Then hop on over to the JUGS DT to check out what they did for this fun project.






That's it for now!

Thanks for stopping by!

Maria! This is fabulous! I love the owls and the paper you used! What fun colors. Love the pocket on the back too - I love the addition of the seed packet - how creative! Great inspiration and thanks for hosting the challenge! I've never made an apron card before - the template was super easy and it's such a fun layout :)
