Baby gift set

It's finally back to school today for my kids, after what seems like forever!



I want to share a project that I made for a friend who just had a baby girl! I made her this keepsake box with drawers, one of my favorite projects to make. You can see the other boxes that I've made here and here , with a full tutorial. I made one for my daughter to match her room and we keep all her hair bows and barrettes in there.




I made the personalized label on the top of the box using Ambassador Monogram Edition to spell out the name and I cut out a flower from the patterned paper.



Along with the box, I made a matching card. I used the elephant from the Click Simple template "Rock a Bye Baby" and resized it to be smaller for my card front.



And the inside of the card got decorated as well.

I think that this project qualifies for our latest Papertrey Princess challenge which was given to us by Lee. You can see the details here . I also entered this project into the Guest Star Stamper contest.

Have a great day!
Melissa
