A Star Baby Boy!

I made these Baby Boy Thank You cards for my niece, Katie, who's having a baby boy in September.


Of course - I had to make a little box to put them all in along with some envelopes. Twelve of them fit nicely inside!
I stamped little baby phrases on the bellyband around the box and the year of birth on the top.
I used the Nestability Fleur de Lis die for the top.

When she's sent all the cards -she can use this box to store little keepsakes the baby gets as he grows!
Don't you just love baby stuff! Thanks for coming by today!

Stamps: Big Star- A Stamp in the Hand, small star - Small sayings SU, Thank you - Waltzingmouse Stamps Rescue Remedies Additions, 2010: WMS Victorian Alphabet, phrases around box band - PSX Little Bundle of Joy (retired)
Paper: White, Spring Rain, Simply Chartreuse, Bitty Stars Basics - PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black & Summer Sky
Accessories: rectangle nestabilities, Star punch - McGill, Scor tape, Fleur de Lis shapeability, Flower Die - PTI, glue dots, basic grey brads, Ribbon & box - PTI, 3/4" circle punch - EK Success

Gorgeous box Julia, and a lovely keepsake for memories too. I struggle with making boxes, I am such a fumbler, I don't suppose there's any chance you can do a tutorial for this box is there?! xx
