Cookie Exchange Invite

It's Friday time with 
TOP DOG DIES

The Apron Card Die and Finisher Set are a big hit at Top Dog Dies!
It can be used for so many occasions in addition to a BBQ.
I have an example of how it can be easily transformed into a 
cookie exchange invitation:

First, find a double-sided paper that has a pretty generic print on both sides
(words or a larger design may not give you the look your going after);
I've used a patterned paper from the December Documented Collection
by Simple Stories.

 The die also cuts flaps alongside the front of the design; just adhere those to
the back of the apron and you have a handy-dandy pocket!
I used a round label and Word program to print off the information and then
attached it to the center of the apron.  
You will find the cute mini border scallop and mittens in the finisher set.

The mittens are just a few felt pieces that I had leftover from the garland that I made last week!
Lastly, I threaded through some May Arts gingham ribbon through the top and knotted in place.
To the inside of the pocket you could also add a candy cane, directions to
the event or some of those cute printable to: and from: labels for their cookies :)

See all of the wonderful steel rule and wafer thin dies that Top Dog Dies has to offer!
Have a holly jolly weekend!

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
