My friend Betsy (a really talented demo friend of mine)just had a baby and I needed to work on a present for her. I'm all about recycling stuff for stamping. I save the strangest things thinking I am going to stamp on them one day. So, one of our favorite treats around here is the Swiss Trail Mix from Target, it is the best trail mix out there!!!! So I've been saving the containers it comes in, because I don't have the heart to waste them and they will make the perfect container "some day". (I've also desided that with 2 boys you can't have enough containers to put stuff in, like frogs, worms, caterpillars, butterflies, etc.)So I had bought a cute little onesie, hat and socks from Gymboree for her. I took the tissue paper from the gift box and put it in the container. Then put the socks and onesie in.
I finished the top with my Giga flower, and flower punches.
Here's the finished product with the hat on the top to make it cute. I wanted her to be able to use the container for something in Julia' room after she took the hat off, so that' why I put the flower on the lid. Nothing too special, but finished!!!
