A Gift Box for a New Baby

A perfect gift for a new Mum, Birth Announcements, Thank You cards and Christening invitations presented in a pretty box which can be used as a keepsake box. A few little extras for the new arrival complete the box.

Box:Cover the outside lid, sides and inside lid of the box with patterned paper.
I have used Birch paper- Baby ABC, Baby Blue Striped and Baby Blue Glitter from Blue Edge Crafts.
Add embellishments of your choice to both the inside and outside lid. I have added Baby embellishments from Blue Edge Crafts and a chipboard word which I painted and coated with Dimensional Magic and a rhinestone word.
Cards: Make 10 C6 sized (15cm x 11cm) cards by adding a layer of patterned paper measuring
(14cm x 10cm ) to the front of the card, add a tag and a “Thank You” sticker.
Make 20 smaller cards 10 cm x 10 cm and add a layer of patterned paper (9cm x 9cm).
Attach tags to the front of each card and add “It’s a Boy” stickers to 10 cards and “Baby’s Christening” stickers to the other …

Butterfly card

A butterfly card to show you today.  I have used Spellbinders Wings of Joy and Grand Labels One dies to make this card.


Scotty Bear

This is my Scotty Bear. I made this bear some time back but he remains one of my favourites. I also made his jacket, kilt and tam o'shanter, actually I made about 4 jackets before I had one that looked reasonable enough to use. As you can tell I am not very good at sewing so I was very happy and surprised when he was awarded first prize at the Queensland Royal Show.
