On Tuesday, our good friends Kellie and David had a beautiful baby boy named Will!! A lovely little brother for Lily. I dropped in and seen them yesterday and gave them some gifts - you probably remember the quilt I made for him:
When Lily was born, I made them a 'Memories Tin' using a paint tin, instead of a paint tin this time I found one of these hinged tins....... SOOOO much easier to open LOL!!
I tied a heap of blue and white ribbon to the handle and attached a 'sweet baby' tag on the top:
I had some white chipboard letters and used them for his name on the bottom and to make them stand out a little better, I went around the edge with a black marker pen. A great quick and easy gift idea. Uses only a couple of scrapbook paper, I used some double sided ones that way with 2 sheets you actually get 4 different patterns!! I also found this great 'it's a boy' ribbon which looked great around the middle of the tin to hide the join of the 2 differnt papers!!
These tins are just great to put the bits and bobs in - hospital arm band, lock of hair and stuff in!! You could really use these for anything actually, I have a paint tin decorated and use it to put my folk art paints in!!
