A cute little baby gift box

Here is a cute little baby gift box I have made with a little baby shoe inside. The shoe has been made using pink gingham paper, gems and silver peel offs.

I have made it as an exploding box with three layers. On the upper layer I have added the letters GIRL one letter on each square.

On the next layer I have added some pink gingham paper, with a piece of white lace stuck towards the top of each square and then I added a peel off baby item that I have stuck onto pink card and then cut around.

The bottom layer has white paper with pink spots on it again with a little lace on each square and then I have added some little baby sayings onto pink card and using decorative scissors to cut the wording out and then I stuck onto the base layer.

I have added photos of each layer so you can see each layer in detail before sticking the layers together to form the exploding box.

I have added some spotty ribbon around the edges of the lid. The image on top is called Peekaboo Girl and is available at Karens Doodles I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and then added some die cuts in each corner of the top of the lid.

I have left the centre square blank so I can add the baby details once its been born.
