Apron Gift Bag

With a few extra, simple steps, the basic apron card was transformed into a gift bag.  This is the perfect way to present a hostess gift at a barbecue -- just add a bit of tissue paper and a few jars of spices.  Or, it would be perfect for a birthday or father's day gift -- just pop a gift certificate into the front pocket to the local butcher shop and add a few barbecueing essentials - salt, pepper, spices, etc., and the gift is ready to give!  If you change the paper, you could fill it with seed packets and add a gift certificate to the local garden shop for your favorite gardener.  Oh, the possibilities are endless!

Click on the video below to see the step-by-step directions onhow to make this very versatile gift box.

I'd love to see how you use it!

Hardware Store Apron Card

I made this card to resemble the Home Depot aprons their employees wear, and I think it looks pretty close.  It's perfect for so many occasions -- a thank you for someone who did some work for you; someone who just bought their first home (which will entail lots of projects), a birthday card for someone who loves to shop at Home Depot, and of course, perfect for Father's Day!

I needed a birthday card for a young man who recently bought his first house and I decided to give him this card.  In the finished version below, I added some small tool die cuts from a die set I purchased many years ago.  I cut all of the tools out of Stampin' Up!'s silver foil paper, and changed out the card in the pocket to say Happy Birthday.

Floral Apron Card

I'm really happy with the way these two cards turned out.  I ran out of Calypso Coral, which I had used as an accent color for the first card, but I was able to quickly find a different color to use since Stampin' Up!'s paperpacks so conveniently list all the coordinating colors for the pack!  Which do you like better -- the Calypso Coral or the Pacific Point?
