Just wanted to share another project I've been working on. My cousin, Kate, is expecting her first baby on September 1st and I'll be seeing her when I go to England in August. She doesn't want to know the sex of the baby so we'll have to wait until the little one arrives for that surprise. Anyway, when I see her, I want to give her a tiny something so I found the perfect inexpensive gift in Target the other day ~ these adorable tiny teddy bear booties for a newborn. They really are just the sweetest thing! Well, you know a stamper could never give a gift without some sort of gift-box, right? So I made a customised box, the base uses Barely Banana, and the lid uses Mellow Moss.
I cut an 8 1/2" square and scored on all 4 edges at 2". After burnishing the folds, I cut diagonally from the outer edges into the point where the scores intersect, this makes a nice, clean corner. The base of the box was cut 1/8" smaller (8 3/8") and scored at 2". This makes a nice, snug fit. The booties lay perfectly inside the box. Just pray the box doesn't get squished on the way to England!!!! The Teddy image is from a new set from SU called Teddy & Train. I coloured him with Copic markers. I then used my nesties to cut the scallop square and the layers are from the same 2 colours I used to make the box.Recipe
