Happy Birthday Me... and A Baby Bootie

I made this for a neighbour who has just had twin boys. I love making them, they come together really quickly. There will be a card to go with it, but that's not finished yet!

The boot itself is finished with peel offs - perfect for using them up, and one of the only things I use them for now - and a bow. The label has a cute little sticker, a beaded nappy pin. It's really sparkly and nice, but doesn't really show up too well on the photos. The ribbon has 'baby' written on it - you can just about see it. The buckle is a Papermania brad.

Now, the box. I covered a sheet of card with DCWV pale blue gingham paper. Its about 10cm x 10cm, and 5cm high. The lid was made in the almost the same way, but I cut an aperture in the top and put in a piece of acetate. Again it's finished with peel offs (to hide the joins!) as this time I made the lid and added the paper afterwards. Finally I added another bow, to match the boot.

So, I'm off to enjoy some birthday (cheese)cake... a belgian chocolate one, too!
