A young co-worker is having her first baby (a girl) in August and we are having a baby shower for her next week. I'm contributing something to the joint gift we are giving her but I also wanted to give her something just from me. So I made this sweet little Baby Food Jar box. How cute is this??!! It measures about 2 1/4" wide x 2 3/4" high by 1" deep. The perfect size to slip in a gift card, a roll of cash, or a small gift!
The die is called Food Jar 3D and Spoon - designed by Eileen Hull for Sizzix and I cut it out of Cream Little Sizzles Matboard so it's really sturdy. I also die cut the pieces out of pink gingham patterned paper from Amuse, adhered it to the matboard pieces and sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Tea Dye Ink. Here you can see the inside space with the basket shred taken out.
I decorated the back of the jar as well, personalizing it with the new baby's name, Alanna, a sweet sentiment from the Beautiful Baby stamp set by MFT and a Movers and Shapers star cut from the matboard and embossed with Frantage Shabby Pink embossing powder.
Back again to the front - the die includes a cute little spoon that I embossed with Frantage embossing powders - Aged Silver on the handle and Shabby Pink on the bowl of the spoon to make it look like those little baby spoons with the rubber on the bowl. I die cut the labels on front and back using Thinlets Labels. The heart is from the same Movers and Shapers die set as the star. I also embossed the 'lid' of the jar with the Frantage Aged Silver embossing powder. To finish off my cute little jar, I knotted pink and magenta wrinkled seam tape around the tops on both sides and put a little basket shred inside it.
I made one of these for a baby boy last winter - you can see it here.
