My good friend Jaci was going to a baby shower today and asked me if I would design a custom baby themed memory box as her gift, she wanted to give something unique. The gift was for a baby boy and she provided his name, birth date and birth weight. . . all important info that mother’s remember!
This was the first memory box I’ve made for a baby gift and it was so fun! I chose the color theme of chocolate brown and a baby blue. I had the white textured paper recently purchased at the local Dick Blick. I had the rick rack and very cute little buttons from a trip to Tiede’s in Overton and the brown canvas, blue Canson paper, letters, ribbon and fuzzy puffy balls were all purchased at Hobby Lobby. They are starting to feature some really great detail patterns and color patterns in their ribbons.
I love this color scheme, so much it’s also the color scheme of my living room along with a few other bright colors! The top of the box features fixed photo corners which hold a 4×6 photo.
This is the customized detail – baby’s name, birth date and birth weight.
This is the inside of the box cover with a few little cute button details.
The final creation is something very sweet to hold many very sweet memories. Thanks Jaci, it was a fun project and I now have so many ideas going through my head!
