ABAC - Baby Keepsakes Box

Happy Sunday, everybody!

As baby boy2 is just days away from arriving, I wanted to make him a little gift. As it is now my turn to do an "Anything But A Card" Project (ABAC) at Paper Works Co..

I bought this keepsakes box for my tater tot at Hallmark and thought that I could personalize one for my upcoming bundle of joy.


I first got the idea when I saw Tim Holtz's shadow box at my LSS. This box had compartments that you can take out and put back in in so many different ways.


It's a perfect keepsakes box for baby2's hospital ID bracelets, first lock of hair, first tooth, etc.


I simply covered it and its compartments with my pick of patterned paper and decorated with PWCO stamps.


I just love the sea scene and all the different cute critters. (Pardon my coloring. I think Ollie up there is having some 'ink' problems - that is why he looks unblended, LOL!)


Mattie even thought they were blocks and wanted to stack them up! :)


Hope baby2 likes it :). Can't wait to see what you all come up with!!


Materials Used:

Stamps- PWCO's
Aqua Amigos.

Box- Tim Holtz Ideology Configurations Shadow Box 5 x 5.

PP- K & Company's Baby Boy.

Misc- Ribbon,
Copics, Scotch 3M adhesives.

Have a fab day!
