*Little One* baby gift ensemble
I made a simple box out of cardstock and embellished it with some old SU! pattern paper I have had forever. I think it is called "Tea Party". It is cute and I love using it! I used quite a variety of stamp sets for this gift, but they are all from PTI. The onesie and coordinating diecut are from "Bitty Baby Blessings" I think. The "little one" sentiment is from the Boutique Borders: Baby stamp set. I told you I love them!
You can see here that I adhered the doily to the box, but the rest is a belly band to go around the box. I love having a lot of detail on my boxes and 3-D items, but I have always found the recipient never likes "messing it up" or so I have been told! LOL! A belly band is the perfect solution!
This box is the perfect size to fit the handmade goodies inside. I made 2 headbands, a onesie and a bracelet. Hopefully these are all thing the mom-to-be will enjoy.
Here is one of my trademark headbands that I make for most of my baby girl gifts. I had someone ask me about the felt that I use in the card I made for my daughter's teacher. I think it was the garden one. I use felt from PTI and My Favorite Things. It is way better quality than the kind you get at the craft store. It is wool felt and I love the quality. The pink I used here is Bubble Gum from My Favorite Things. The die-cut I used is from PTI.
This is the plain white onesie that I decorated. I used the same diecut for the fabric flower as I did for the pink headband. I like putting together a cohesive gift. I was a little disappointed when I stamped the sentiment because the last E was darker than the rest. I had already put the flower and button on, so it had to do. I hope you enjoy this little gift ensemble and Thanks for fluttering by!
