Another CraftShow Item and a BLOG AWARD!!


This is another item that I will be selling at my upcoming Craft Show. It would make a nice gift to bring to the new parents at either the hospital or when they arrive home for the first time with their new Bundle of Joy. I will be making them in light blue (pictured), pink, yellow, green and a light purple.

I first, folded 2 pieces of white tissue paper and then placed it into the glass, then I used my light blue ink pad and rubbed the raised edges of the paper for a little added color. I stamped that cute teddy bear (IB Lil Stamp) using a few different color browns. Then blew it up on the copier 190%, printed it out onto cardstock, colored it in with some colored pencils and added the mini pacifier and bow. I then adhered that along with all the other Vintage Labels (Melissa Frances and Crafty Secrets) using a hot glue gun to some large lollipop sticks which I also "ran" my lt. blue ink pad down. I then glued them to the inside of the paper
along with the little baby shoe, ribbon, string pearls and a safety pin. The one label says "The Star EXTRA A Baby was Delivered to Mr & Mrs_____ on_______" So the gift giver can fill in the parents name as well as the baby's arrival date on the label to personalize the gift. On the outside of the glass block, I adhered a chipboard heart which I covered in glitter, some lace ribbon and a button. Let's hope they sell!
