#Hashtag Dad

*** The winner of this apron is Charlotte C ***  Charlotte, please leave your email address in the comments below so that we may contact you!!

Hello, All!  Marilyn here with a Father's Day gift idea.  Is your father the Grill Master of the household?

Three pocket adult sized apron.

Items Needed

  • Apron Blank - I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby today (on sale) for $3.49
  • Square 1 Iron-on - one sheet is approximately $1.90
  • Ink Jet Printer
  • Silhouette Cutter
  • Heat Press or Home Iron

Apron purchased on sale at Hobby Lobby

My first step was to pre-wash and dry the apron.

Screen shot of Silhouette design with registration marks
While that is taking place, I found this image of Snoopy with his chef's hat and cooking utensils on the internet.   I was able to easily trace it within the Silhouette software.   I added a small white offset around the image since this was going on a red apron.  The image Cut Style was set to "cut edge."  I turned on the registration marks and printed onto the Square1 Iron-On that had been loaded in my home printer.

No layering needed.  Entire image is just one layer.
The image was cut out with the Silhouette and leaves you with a one layer iron-on patch.

At the heat press.
Lay out image where you want to attach to apron.

I pre-heated my heat press to 325 degrees, covered my blank apron with a Teflon sheet and pressed for 4 seconds.  I then laid the Snoopy image on the apron, covered with a Teflon sheet and pressed again for 4 seconds.

Finished apron.

Ta-Dah!  All done and ready for Dad!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
