Alexa was 9lbs, and I thought that was big-WOW!
Well in my post yesterday, I made the Onsies shaped baby card to give to her when the baby arrived. It was rather a joke because she has NO 0-3 month 3-6 month onesies! My goal was to wrap the onesie’s in a unique, and fun way. I am going to share with you what I did. I am ECSTATIC over it.
I will visit her today, and spent yesterday FRANTICALLY making my vision a reality. I am happy to say I worked beautifully!!!
Now I will share my Baby Bouquet! I think its a beautiful way to present a gift-rather than REAL flowers!
What’s in the bouquet?
I used the large heart tin that I purchased from Papertrey. I decorated the outside/cover with embossed paper by Martha Stewart. I then tied a wide ribbon around it by Heidi Swapp. The lid was covered using the method Debbie Olson posted on her blog—>HERE. REALLY EASY!!!
The “bouquet” is made up of 5 rolled up onesie’s- white, pink, yellow and 2 patterned. They are rolled to look like “roses”. Isn’t it so pretty?
They are folded in half, rolled up and taped with white floral tape. I used floral tape because its not too sticky and holds them together! Then an elastic is placed around the bundle. This kept them in place the way I wanted them, and helps them from falling over in the container. The heart was PERFECT size for this, and will be a nice item for the baby room, after it is pulled apart! GASP!!! This will get disassembled :C OK I won’t think about it. But I will instruct her to NOT throw away my flowers! If she can’t sue them, then I want them back! LOL!
Inside the tin I placed some Kraft colored shredded paper, then put in the onesie roses. I then shoved in around the sides and in between, some various green colored large daisy Prima’s to act as “greenery”. I then used more hydrangea flowers, and little pink prima’s to fill in my bouquet!
It came out so pretty. I was then FREAKING out-HOW do I package this, and present it to her?
I can’t just carry it in-since the lid doesn’t fit on, and Im clumsy! My luck I’ll trip and drop it. Then I didn’t want all my work to get HIDDEN in a bag.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I had to create a box for the bouquet!
If you can’t buy it-MAKE IT!
The top comes off, and the side are all acetate-so you can see it!
I used myScor-Pal to create this.
Here is the top view-
This uses the set Out on a Limb.
I used the sentiment
I Love You-to the moon and back again, to infinity and beyond, forever and ever.
I also included the book “Guess how much I love you” by Sam McBratney.
It is tied closed with the soft pink ribbon.
I can’t wait to bring this to her, and see her baby. I hope she likes it.
I’ll let you all know how it goes.
I’ll be back later with my Blogger’s Challenge-I just HAD to post this ASAP! I couldn’t contain my excitement.
