The term “apron strings” can carry an unwanted meaning, right? Not here. These apron strings of love have a little pinch of sweetness just right for Mom.
Forget the negative meaning, an apron symbolizes many things like love, dedication and caring, to name a few. I have several aprons given to me by friends and family that I adore. Some are handmade, some come from novelty stores. All are loved equally . In fact, several of them are displayed, proudly, in my kitchen.
When we think about apron strings, does Mom come to mind first? Maybe, but don’t forget about Dad with a BBQ apron and utensils. Even the apron strings of a caring friend can wrap around you like a warm hug.
Making the Cut: This fun little card was created for a “Card Buffet” project last weekend. Before you ask, “What were you thinking with all of those little die-cuts?”, take a look at the graphic below. All of the little cooking utensils are cut at the same time, in one die. The apron strings too. What a concept!
Apron Fabric: To create a great apron you’ll need the right fabric, I mean Designer Series Paper. The citrus pattern used here is from the Tutti Frutti 6×6 DSP stack. Take a look at these patterns. Don’t some of them remind you of of aprons on old television shows or in vintage shops?
Teeny Tiny Pieces: The only draw back of this bundle is teeny, tiny pieces, or more exactly, how to attach them. Yikes! I tried both Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the Fine Tip Glue Pen. The biggest concern is the stickiness left behind by Tombow. Fine Tip Glue wins this round.
The real reason this bundle made it to my workbench? A cookbook project. Have you been invited to a bridal shower? Use products used on this card plus some Memories and More products to create a gift from the heart.
