This week Shopping Our Stash has asked us to 'fess up about the strangest or weirdest purchase we have made for the purpose of creating something. I've got a doozy for this one! Back when I was first just dipping my toe into card making I read an article about being more creative by repurposing things for cards so I bounded off to the Dollar Store and bought this:
Yes, that is in fact an apron and it's made of some weird thin plastic stuff. Not sure what I was thinking but 6 years later it was still waiting patiently in a drawer for me to put it to use. So I took the SOS challenge by the horns and introduced that apron to my Cuttlebug. Above you can see the result. The centres of the flowers are a lilac colour which is why I used this colour scheme but then I covered up the centre with Perfect Pearls so I guess I could make more with different colours. Perhaps a set of repurposed apron note cards! Or maybe I should paper piece (or apron piece?) an apron image with this! Oh the possibilities are endless! Thanks SOS!
