Hello my name is Beckie Dreyer and I am delighted to be here today to share with you a little project I made using Ruby Rock-It’s Country Cookin
product line. The new Country Cookin is filled with a rich, retro color palette and the embellishments all about cooking. It’s just perfect to set your creative taste buds on fire!
Lace and Ribbon
Mannequins are so much fun to alter and there are many different styles to be found. This one has a solid body and came with a pattern on it so I decided to paint the top half of it with cream paint first.
The following measurements are based on the mannequin above, you will need adjust for yours.
I cut a 4″ x 12″ piece from the Country Cookin Floral paper. On one of the short sides mark at 2″ and then 3.75″ on the long side. Cut between the lines and repeat on the other side so your paper will look like this.
Place double-sided tape around the edges of the paper as shown and then add ribbon along the edges.
Flip the paper over and add a thin line of glue around the edge and adhere the brown twine.
Cut two 2″ x 6″ pieces and one 2″ x 3″ piece from the Country Cookin Gingham paper. Ink and glue the smaller piece to the center of the mannequin.
Punch the edge of the two longer pieces and ink. Trim with Bella! bling and add to the top of the mannequin.
Wrap and adhere the skirt around the body. Add lace around the “waist”; this will hide any places where the papers join one another that might be showing.
To make the apron I die-cut the Country Cookin Splotch paper using the largest Spellbinder Scallop Circles and then inked and pierced the edges. I then added brown ribbon on the top and trimmed off the excess before tying it around the waist. I then added a little pocket and placed the wood veneer spoon in it.
I then finished the mannequin by adding a mixture of the Country Cookin die cuts. To top it all off I used the chef hat die cut on top.
There are so many wonderful things that can be made with this collection like a recipe book filled with your grandma’s favorite foods or use the patterns on the reverse sides to scrap your everyday photos!
Thank you for allowing me to share my project with you today
