Baby Popcorn

Hello, I hope you all had a good weekend :)

I have a baby shower gift package to show you today..... it's a bit different and focuses on a play on words to give it that fun element :) I was trying to find an alternative use for the Popcorn Treat Box from Sugar Pea Designs and then the phrase "ready to pop" sparked this idea...

I started by running the die through twice to make the box and then stamped the stripes using the solid stripe in Mama Elephants Basic Borders set. I chose to use a traditional pink ink as the gifts are for our niece who is expecting a baby girl very soon, very exciting as it is the first baby of that generation for our family. I used the dies in the set to cut an oval in pink card and then made a second slightly smaller oval by tracing around the inside of the same die on white card and cutting it out with scissors :)

The phrase is made up using dies from the Popcorn set and Mama Elephants Bella Letters. I have added a die cut nappy pin to provide that extra 'New Baby' touch :)

It's quite a small box but the perfect size for a couple of bibs and a Giftcard.... another option would be the Waffleflower Template Petal Holder die which has a slightly larger base but shorter in height.

To give the gift the extra creative finishing touch I used Lawn Fawns Little Bundle stamp set to decorate a sheet of tissue paper, it is only subtle but I think it sets the small presents off nicely.


Thank you for visiting and I hope this might inspire you to think outside the Popcorn Box!
