the first 12 months

A friend of mine just recently had a baby shower and since she was having her second girl, I was at a loss of ideas for a gift. Then I remembered a memory box that I made for Gavin's first 12 months. It's a great way to store all of the sweet little trinkets from those early stages of life.

My friend is not very traditional in her girl colors (no to pink) so I found some old Pink Paislee paper that just happened to be her theme colors and was also very feminine at the same time.









On the inside of the lid I left a spot for her to place a 4x6 picture of her new baby.



On the inside of the box and used some Thickers to spell out her name.



I also made a card to match the box!



I was really happy with the results. In fact, I wanted to keep it for myself :) But of course, I didn't. My friend was very happy and impressed with the gift. And she loved the colors (whew!!)
I love giving handmade gifts to people that appreciate them!!
