I used La Belle Vie paper pack and our My Creations Recipe Box because I wanted it deeper then the original one made with our Card Box. I blinged it up with our Pearl Flourishes, La Belle Vie My Stickease, and our Roses Ribbon.
Here's the front:
Here's the top of the box:
I made the 3-D Roses with our Cricut Artiste Cartridge, and her name with the font from our Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge just because I like the font better. One thing to keep in mind, is to peel the pearl flourishes off and put it down where you want it on your project just a bit at a time to prevent it from tangling up on itself.
Here's the inside of the lid:
I hope you can read the poem. I didn't write it, and neither did the Consultant who posted her version on the Bulletin Board, so it's origin is unknown. I used decorations from My Stickease and the Roses Ribbon in the crease. It's pretty, but resulted in my having to use industrial strength velcro closures on the lid and box. Next time I think I'll put the Roses on the outside!
Inside the box I put four sets of 12 "note" cards stamped with butterflies, flowers, and "True Story" at the top:
My girlfriend doesn't scrapbook so I wanted her to have these little notes at hand to jot down the cute baby memories we all cherish with our children. And the box is big enough to hold more treasures as Ava gets older.
If you'd like to make a DIY Gift with our My Creations Recipe Box, I have a template I can email you that will be helpful in covering it properly. Just leave me a request in the comments with your email and I'll get it off to you.
I'm on holidays for a week, so thanks for stopping by!
