Recipe Card Caddy

Hi Crafters,
A little 3d project for you today, I love making things like this, when time allows.
I saw a beautiful example on this blog which inspired me to use a cutting file I had on my Cameo for the apron shape and then I set about making it into a folder with pockets. It measures 21cm x 14cm and holds 12 recipe cards with room for more. This post is a bit photo heavy but I thought it needed to be shown from a few angles.

Opened up...

...and the recipe cards themselves out of the pockets.
 The papers used were from a couple of digital kits - 'Pinch/Dash' by Just So Scrappy  and  'Cookin' Cookies Too' by Nitwits. The Cutlery were also a Cameo cut file along with the apron shape.
I used a Magnolia lace border die to edge the pockets, gingham ribbon and buttons from my stash and the cute little wooden rolling pin is from The Ribbon Girl, I won a set of them in a blog candy. I also made an oven glove tag using a mittens cut file and some quilted effect paper. You can just see the pair of oven gloves dangling from the side.
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Come & Get It - Ribbon and Bows
Not Just Cards - #11 ATG
TTCRD - ATG
Papertake Weekly - Take Your Pick - ATG
 

It's just started to snow after a rather heavy hail storm here, it's not laying though so hopefully it will be short lived.
Take care,
Bye for now,
 
Lorraine

PS. puppy parties are supposed to help them get used to playing or just being around other dogs, so in theory they'll be friendly with dogs they meet later on... fingers crossed he'll have fun!
