Apron Box---Recipe Card Holder

I  made this Apron Box with the Sizzix Bigz Apron die by Lori Whitlock.  The box is made of heavyweight Neenah cardstock with paper printed in Photoshop. The designer paper is by Snickerdoodle Designs by Karen's retired kit Ginger Magic, and is printed on photo paper.  The wooden buttons are from my stash. When I make this apron's pocket, I raise it on foam tape and use it as a recipe card holder.  You can fold in the edges of the pocket and add embellishments like a spoon, cookies and other cooking designs found in "Ginger Magic"  Also in the apron together with a dozen holiday recipes,  is a knitted dish cloth knitted with cotton yarn.  These are wonderful for Kitchen areas--long outlast a sponge and never stink, and can be thrown in the washer anytime you want to freshen it.  Pattern's available here.  See other design ideas here where I used tiny clothes pins as recipe card holders instead ribbon straps (that you can hang these with).
