I did two different fabrics for the front and back, but you could certainly do the same on both sides.
Her sister saw the blue one and wanted a pink one for the baby girl that she just had a couple of weeks ago! Which turned out so cute!

Next I put coordinating paper in the center square and on the 4 outside squares.
To make the lit, score a piece of card stock so the center square is 1/4" bigger than the dimensions of the outside piece of card stock. (My center is 4 1/4"x4 1/4") The side pieces are 1 1/2"x 4 1/4". Then cut one side, fold in the flap, and adhere with tacky tape! Decorate as desired.

I have posted a couple of these before, but I just recently made this one for a friend who is having a girl in July. I saw her fabric, on her blog, that she was going to do her baby's room out of and I made this to match. That is what is so fun about these. You can customize them any way you want. The process is a little tricky, but once you figure it out its really easy. First, you cut out a piece of cardboard in the shape of a shirt. Then cut out a piece of fabric in the same shape, but about an inch bigger all the way around. Hot glue the fabric to the cardboard so it is really tight. I don't glue the front, I just wrap the excess fabric around the cardboard and glue it to the back. That way you can stretch it really tight. Next, glue three long ribbons to the back. Then you are ready to put the tulle on. I have done this part 2 different ways. 1) Buy a roll of tulle from a craft store. Cut 3 strips and glue them to the back. 2) Buy a one yard from a fabric store. The advantage to doing it this way is the tulle is about 3 times as wide, so you can cut one strip and fold it in half. And continue the process by gluing it to the back of the shirt.
Choose a coordinating ribbon (I love the rick rack, but you can use any thin ribbon that matches), and glue it around the outside edge. Next, cover the the back with felt to cover all of the mess on the back. And last, just adhere a ribbon to the bottom of the shirt so it looks complete and put a coordinating button in the middle. I have loved having a cute way to display my daughter's bows!

I made this one for Aimee (the wedding shower I went to on Saturday)! I think this might be one of my favorite aprons. The colors are so fun. Once you get the hang of them you can whip them out pretty fast. And once again I got the fabric at Hobby Lobby! Love that store:)

I helped make these for a wedding shower that I went to on Saturday. They we super easy and super cute. We used the Cricut with the Boxes, Bags, & Tags cartridge. The box is 6" and we used 12"x12" paper. We could have fit 2 boxes per paper, but just ended up using the extra paper for the cute scallops on front. I pre-ordered the "Aimee & Nate" stamp from Stampin' Up and punched it on Whisper White paper. Then we punched them out with the 1 1/4" circle punch. (A little tip: If you stamp first and then punch you can center the stamp easier) Then we used the scallop circle the punch out the pink flower. It only took us about 2 hours to make them from start to finish, and we make 45 of them. Then, of course, we filled them with cute matching candy!

I love the colors of this card. This one looks complicated, but its really not bad if you get the scoring right. Here are the supplies we used:
Bashful Blue card stock: 2"x 4" ( And run through the bigshot with a flower embossing pad)
Rich Razzleberry CS: 8 1/2"x5 1/2" (scored @ 4 1/4" and 6 1/4") & 1 piece that is 4"x 3/4" and then use the scallop edge punch.
Pale Plum: 4 1/4"x 5 1/2"
Whisper White: 2"x 4" & 5 1/2"x 1 3/4"(The bigger one needs to be scored 1" in and scalloped on the edge)
DS (designer Series) Rich Razzleberry: 1 1/4"x 4" & one extra piece for a flower(which was run through the bigshot also, but could be cut out with a punch or even scissors.)
Bashful Blue DS: 3 smaller flowers
Ribbon: 11-13" Bashful blue ribbon
Stamps: Message for Mom stamp set
Stamp Pads: Rich Razzleberry and Bashful Blue
You, of course, don't have to use the Stampin' Up colors. It would be so cute with tons of other color combinations. I just thought the "stand up" idea was so cute! If you need any help figuring out how to put it together let me know:)
