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.

Both clever and adorable and can be used later in the childs room as a display/a banner perhaps there! Bravo!

It looks fabulous, Julie! What a lovely job you did and the bonus is that it can be kept for display in baby's room.

I have only ever known one 'Coral' in my life and that was way back when I was a child.

So cute! If I ever have grandchildren I'll know just who to look to for inspiration.
