One of the most popular summer cards year after year has been the BBQ Apron Easel Card.
The design lends itself very well to be used for invitations to those fabulous backyard BBQs.It has all the essentials tucked into the pocket of the apron: Spatula, Fork, BBQ Sauce and Mitt.
|After cutting all the pieces for the BBQ Apron Easel Card, group the pieces for each element together for easier assembly.
|Start by gluing the decorative layer to the front of apron and then fold along score lines to form the apron pocket. **The decorative layer was added to the original file on 6-9-2016 so if you purchased the file before that, just login to your account and download the file again.
|Fold tabs to back of apron and glue.
|Assemble the other elements for the card, the BBQ sauce bottle, utensils, mitt and greeting layers.
|Fold the card base along score lines as shown to create the easel. You will fold the card in half and then fold one side again as shown in photo.
|Apply glue to the bottom half of the folded card as shown and then attach the apron front/pocket, lining up along bottom and side edges. Photo below shows card after gluing and laid open.
|The inside greeting layer is used to hold the easel card open so use pop dots to give it some height.
This card provides lots of opportunity to add notes and quotes. Besides the apron pocket insert and the greeting layer on the base, the mitt and sauce bottle have white layers to add to the back of the piece This is optional of course. If you plan to use the card for an invitation to a BBQ the pocket insert works great for adding the details of the invite.
