Crafter's Apron: from Creations by AR 
I wanted to make a little gift for my Mother in Law as it is her 80th Birthday, now although this is a Birthday gift, it was made using papers from my Christmas background paper pad, I added an extra pocket to the front of the Apron to hold a small post it pad, perfect for her kitchen to write down what she needs or to keep handy by the telephone to joy down a message.

I edged the patterned paper with faux stitching and made a paper frill with an edge punch and added it around the Apron back.

A few pearls and a piece of lace and velvet around the center.

Finished with a hanging braid and buttons and a pretty rose.
