I'm always looking for fun new ways to make, display, and gift mini albums.  So when the amazingly cute Made With Love collection was introduced, my brain was in overdrive with ideas! One of those ideas was inspired by the cute little apron from the odds & ends.  I made an apron shaped box to hold not only a fun accordion-shaped mini album, but also a few favorite recipes!  I'm excited to give this little gift to a good friend who loves to bake.

Let's start with the box.  I used a Lori Whitlock cutting file called Cook's Apron Box.  I cut the box out of white card stock and covered the sides with the adorable Bake Me Happy paper.  My pocket was easy since I love plaid, and the precious little utensils look adorable tucked inside!

I added heart sprinkles to the front of the pocket, and also love how they look to anchor the ribbon ... CUTE!

Next, I used the Silhouette software to weld several apron shapes together.  I cut 3 aprons from 12x12 card stock twice (adding a little tab to one of them) and then glued them together to create a 6-panel album. 

Next up, decorating all of the cute apron pages.  That's always the really fun part!  When I do shaped minis I like a simple scallop circle for my pictures.  Here I used a 3" scallop circle punch, and a 2.5" round circle punch.  Isn't that wreath cute layered on the page above?

I can see cute little pictures of me and Rylee baking cookies on these pages! Oh, and how fun are those shape sprinkles, shaped like sprinkles!!!  LOL!!  Love them!!

That little speech bubble says it all ... All You Need Is Love.... oh, and Doodlebug paper.  And Doodlebug odds & ends.  And Doodlebug sprinkles.  And Doodlebug everything! because seriously, it is Just. So. Cute!   Thanks so much for letting me share with you today!  Until next time, happy crafting friends!
