Today’s Wednesday’s WOW!#91 I have a special project for you. It’s an apron gift box.
I shared this project at my Onstage presentation back in November. I was honoured to present the Best Dressed Bundle in Sydney. I will be sharing other projects with this bundle in the coming weeks but thought you might like to see this project.
It might be fun to make up a little gift box for someone. If you are a Demonstrator it might be great as you start planning your Catalogue Launches in January. I have made it in to a little Stampin’ Up! apron which is quite a novelty but you could use other card or paper and make a really pretty box. I am sharing the template and the details below.
So many people loved this cute little bag at Onstage and also when I have shared it on some Facebook groups I am on. Now here it is for you.
This is made with the All Dressed Up Dies.
Cut one bag front from black card. Trim the side off the diecut bag and also the bottom tab so you are left with an apron shape. Also cut 2 of the stitched strips from black card to use as the straps.
Here is the back of the bag. I created a little box so you can fill it with small treats It’s a very simple box. I will share the template below. The straps are attached at the top of the apron, crossed over and attached inside of the box at the back.
Below is the template to create the box. Cut your card 10.5cm x 12cm (4 1/8″x 4 3/4″).
Score on the short side at 4cm, 6.5cm (1 1/2″, 2 5/8″). Score on the long side at 2.5cm, 9.5cm (1″, 3 3/4″).
Cut up on the tabs on the short sides. Fold on all the score lines.
Add adhesive to the outside of the small centre tabs on the short side. Fold up to form a box. Add more adhesive on the tabs as needed. Adhere all together.
Place adhesive on the back of one side of the box. Line up the bottom edge of the box with the bottom edge of the apron at the back to be sure it is straight. Adhere the straps on the apron and box.
I cut the small stitched sentiment shape to create the apron at the front and added a small logo from the Follow Your Art Washi Tape.
I hope you like the cute box/bag. It’s a lot of fun to create.
This will be the last Wednesday’s WOW! for 2019. We will have a couple of week’s break over Christmas and New Year and be back in 2020. I look forward to sharing more with you in the new year.
