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 10.

All stickers available from Sticker Store

Add a punched teddy to each side of the tag

Wrap each set of cards with ribbon I have used “It’s a Boy” white woven edge organza form Blue Edge Crafts.

Add a few little extras to fill the box. I have added a brush and comb set and a pacifier holder as well as a little teddy bear.
