Baby Boy Card & Gift Bag


Huge apologies for not being around much recently. Due to a combination of not feeling too well and school holidays I haven't really felt like crafting but fortunately I have a couple of makes in reserve that haven't been posted yet.

The card I'm sharing today was made for the couple who received the nappy cake I made. Their little boy Grayson Stanley was born on the 13th July and I believe he came a week early.

I also made a little gift bag and matching tag to go with the card and inside were 3 little handmade bibs. Once I'd folded/rolled the bibs I was able to work out the dimensions for the bag.

The bag was cut from a 12"x12" piece of scrapbook paper that was trimmed to 27cms square. I cut two of these as one sheet wasn't big enough and I used double sided sticky tape to attach the front and back together at the sides and then to seal the bottom. I scored each sheet at 5cm, 22cm and then 5cms for the fold over at the base. The handle was punched with the Stampin' Up Word Window Punch. An eyelet, ribbon and twine were added to finish.

Card Ingedients
Digital Image and Papers: Paper Creator (Blue Baby Bear)
Embellishments: Ribbon from my craft stash (Hobbycraft)
Tools: Circular and Circular Scalloped Nestabilities. Circular Punch
Sentiment: Created on the computer using 'Constantia' font
