Baby gift box

Now that I finally have all my Christmas stuff out of the way, I can catch up on the other things that I want to make!  There are lots of birthdays coming up in the next month or so, but first I need to finish making the present for Zac!  I've had his outfits to go inside this box since the day after he was born...just no time to make the rest of his pressie :-)

The instructions for this gorgeous box were posted over at UStamp back when I was in hospital with Dylan, so this is the first time I have made it.  I love how it turned out!  I have used Baja Breeze cardstock, teamed with Sweet Slumber Specialty paper, and the duck from the Wagon Full of Fun stamp set.  I am itching to put some Baja Breeze ribbon on it so that it feels "finished", but it looks too girly with it, so I am going to have to finish the rest of the pressie and deliver it before I give in and make it look pretty!

I am making a scrapbook page and card to match the box, but they are a work in progress at the moment (and anyone who knows me knows just how long it takes me to put a scrapbook page together!!), so you will  have to pop back another day to see those.  I am hoping to get them finished off tonight, so fingers crossed I will be able to share them with you tomorrow.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Stampin'
