A while ago, I was blown away by the most talented Lauren and her ability to create a baby onesie bouquet & cards in this post –>here<–. I never get the opportunity to create for babies. It seems like all my friends and family are past that stage. When I went to work last weekend, there was a little slip of paper on my mailbox stating that I was to bring in a “secret gift” for an aid for nurse’s aid appreciation week. My secret buddy is expecting and having a little girl in August. I instantly thought of Lauren’s idea…yeah the opportunity to create baby stuff. I was even more motivated because she’s naming her baby Morgan like my daughter:)
What to do with these $1 tins I found at Target??
Not wanting to do the exact same thing as Lauren, I had to find a way to utilize this tin. I had one of those moments while driving….how about trying to make a baby carriage? I am so pleased with the way this project turned out. I had to take a step back when I was finished and decide if I wanted to give it away..lol.
Just an FYI, don’t ask the dimensions for the umbrella to the carriage. I was playing around creating, trying to make it work, and didn’t write down any dimensions/score lines/etc. And, if you do decide to re-create, it is likely that the dimensions to your tin won’t be the same:)
Here is an upclose of my flower bouquet inside the carriage:
Here is a pic of the whole package she’ll receive tomorrow:
I used MFT stamp set Congrats all Around for the Onesie Cards because she’ll need to have some cards on hand post-delivery for thank you’s or announcements if she wishes. The card package contains 10 cards and envelopes with coordinating patterned paper belly band around the envelopes. Ribbon is May Arts to continue the theme from the carriage to the card package.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
