for the baker.... a stationery set.
It's group post time over at CSS! We're showing off stationery sets - one of my very favorite things to craft.... and this one's for your favorite baker friend:
I created a set of cards, kitchen-themed tags, stickers and flags.
I used "let's bake: sentiments" to create my gift - I love that set so much! The paper-pieced apron got a touch more frilly with an even bigger bow. I kept it clean and simple, with just a binding of white washi tape for embellishment.
The stickers say "freshly baked" and match the colors of the patterned paper used on the apron and the twine seal.
When I saw this image in the set, I immediately thought of how fun it would be to make tags out of them, and be able to write the recipient's name across the banner, or identify the yummy gift contents... but the image is too big to fit into any tag shapes that I already have. I came up with a solution:
I ran the die through my machine like so, only cutting the tag "top" and leaving the rest to dangle outside of the cutting mats.
See? the bubble top cut, and the rest was trimmed and corner-rounded by hand.
That's all from me, but here are some more paperie clicks for you to enjoy:
