Shabby Apple Dare to Design Dress Submission… I am so excited to share with you all my 1940’s Dress Design submission for Shabby Apples Design Contest.

Birthday BBQ Invitation
You just need some scrapbook paper/cardstock. Printer, baby hole punch, ribbon, scissors, and some glue. I just typed up the invitation info (could be for a picnic, or reunion BBQ). Added some clip art. Printed the BBQ clip-art on the red and white paper then cut them out to fit the card. Cut out all your pieces and glue them together. Punch your holes, add your ribbon, fold and glue the sides of your pocket together and let dry. Put invite in the pocket!
