Baby keepsake using Stampin’ Up! products

Baby keepsakes 1   baby keepsakes 2

Good morning to you all.

Heres a little something different to what i usually make, its a baby keepsake.  Its a double folding box so it has two little boxes inside what looks like one.

I was browsing the internet when i found a template but it had no instructions, measurements or anything so i came up with some myself and i think it turned out really well (even if i do say so myself haha) soooo…I did one for valentines day but didnt get it on here in time so i decided to rework it for something else and as i had my A Fitting Occasion stamp set just come through from Mr UPS I thought why not use that.  I looked through and saw “little one” and i knew i had to use it.  So as i was making these i thought it would be great to give as gift when baby arrives with something gorgeous in and then thought isnt it great for parents to keep babies hospital ID bracelet or lock of hair in all those things you tend to keep ( still have the tags from my childrens belly buttons hahah i couldnt bare to get rid of them i also have the usual things like hair and teeth etc hahah) so the baby keepsake was born, how ironic!! Heres a list of the products i used and below that i will put the directions down for you.
