Baby Gift Box Decoration
Early in the evening tonight my DIL announced she would be stopping by a baby shower for a friend (a different one) tomorrow. She had bought a gift already, and I asked if I could make a personalized gift box decoration like the one I am already making, but about 1/4th size of the original. She said yes, so I spent a couple of hours and here is our finished product! The individual letters are strung on a lime green rope from a gift bag handle (one of my favorite crafting items)...and I had wanted to sort of drape the thing like a banner, but we had a few obstacles. One was that the box was just a tad too small, and the other was that it had a ribbon and sticker dead center from the store it had been bought from, which would have shown if it had been hung in a draped fashion. Finally we opted for straight across on a diagonal. It is cute, I must say...and covers that sticker in the middle. How do you like this cute baby name...Coral??? Isn't that sweet? I heard that she has an older sister with a "C" name also. Very cool.
