Last Thursday some of my Stampin' Up! group came over for stamping and some business, too.  People traded if they wanted to.

Iris Tamishiro made this beautiful Christmas Apron. 

Don't you love how she used so many new products to make it ?

And here is the back.


This is a bit of an optical illusion.  The card stock pocket to this apron is in the back.  She started with an 8 1/4"x 4 1/4" piece of Soft Suede card stock.  She scored at 5 1/2" and folded the 2 3/4" piece up to the back to form the pocket for the Hot Chocolate.

On the front, Iris used the largest scallop from the Scallop Die #2 and the Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper (DSP) to form the apron.

The Dotted Scallop Border Ribbon Punch makes a perfect string for the apron.

  • Set: #120627 Got Treats pg 54 $17.95 (Gingerbread man)
  • Big Shot:  #124099 Stocking Accents (Candy Cane) pg 24 Holiday Mini $17.95; #123128 Stripes Embossing Folder pg 218 $7.95;
  • Punch:  #119854 1 3/4" Scallop Circle (scallop at the neck) pg 210 $16.95;  #122465 Doily Triple Layer Punch pg 211 $23.95;
  • Accessories: #119247 Rhinestones (150 pieces) pg 198 $4.95:

Note: To create the candy cane, Iris cut out a red and a white candy cane.  She cut out the white portions of the candy cane and added them onto the solid red candy cane to this such a realistic effect.

When you add the DSP scallop to the front of the apron, just put the adhesive around the edges of the scallop.  The center part of the apron needs to be adhesive free so that the candy cane can slip in.

I think that you have to make up your own "armhole template" and then just continue to trace it for each apron.  The width of the very top of Iris's apron is 1 7/8". The armhole is 2 3/8" long.
