Baby Shower Gift Boxes

Blue, pink, yellow, or green... Baby colors!  If you know any new Mom's that are expecting, or even one that is going to be a Mom again, these cute little gift boxes would be a great treat! 

These are easy to make, and you could fill them with small items for a new mom like tea, small beauty items, small items for the baby.  Or if you are helping with planning a baby shower these would make great party favors filled with candy!  On the back of the boxes there is even a space to write a Congratulatory message or a Thank You sentiment (if you did use them as a shower favor).

SVG's: Winter Snowflake Box by Lori Whitlock; Scal3 basic shapes - circle, rectangle, square
Cardstock: We R Memory Keepers - Baby Mine; White Cardstock
Stamps: We R Memory Keepers Baby Mine - Baby Borders and Congrats
Ink: Archival Ink by Ranger (black); Colorbox by Clearsnap - light blue and light pink
Adhesive: Xyron Mega Runner; Xyron 1.5 inch Create A Sticker

In SCAL3, I opened the Winter Snowflake Box SVG by Lori Whitlock and ungrouped the image so I could delete the snowflake svg.  With my eCraft, I cut out the box in the size it had imported into SCAL3 as and assembled it together using my Xyron Mega Runner.

 Then I cut out the following in white cardstock - 1 circle at 2.25 inches wide and 1 square at 2.5 inches wide.  In the printed pattern I cut out a circle at 2.6 inches wide and a rectangle at 3 inches wide by 3.5 inches high. 

Next I stamped the baby feet onto the white circle in black ink and inked the edges in the colored ink and adhered it to the patterned circle.  Then I adhered the completed circle onto the front of the box.  I stamped the white squares with the sentiment/block stamp in black ink and inked the edges in colored ink also and adhered it to the middle of the patterned rectangle. I then adhered the finished rectangle to the back of the box.

I glued the buttons onto the front of the box, one in each of the four corners.  For the back, using my scissors, I fussy cut out some of the images from the same patterned cardstock that I used in the previous steps and adhered the images to the bottom of the back of the box.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! If you have any questions, please visit leave a comment or visit the Craftwell forum and ask! 

Hope you're having a great day!
