Little Lady - Gift Box

It's hard to believe that this little box started out completely a blank canvas of white, I purchased it from PTI for $4 it is the first I've bought but I just know I'll be back for more.

the Polka dot base was made with the dot stamps from Woman of Life stamp set inks with rocket red Brilliance Ink. The circles were cut with Nestabilie's circles then stamped the sentiment and the Lady bird with PTI Stamps.


I stamped the box lid using Papertrey Ink Little Lady Stamp Set with Brilliance rocket red ink and Archival Black ink and also stamped a bright red satin ribbon with the same stamps to compliment the lid.
Using the Just Hatched stamp set from Papertrey Ink I Stamped the oval Little One sentiment and layered this up on white and red card stock.
Then wrapped the ribbon around the lid and covered the join with the oval sentiment.



I used the same Red Rocket Brilliance ink to colour the little egg tray.


Now that the Gift Box is complete I need something to go inside it.
Here's what I found, 5 ickle pairs of socks and a bright red and white polka dot hat.


I wrapped the baby socks and hat so that they would fit snuggly into the egg tray and made a couple more of the little lady's which I will pop into the box before adding the lid.

This is totally adorable Jak. You do put those PTI stamps etc to great use. I had to give up ordering them because of the mega high postage but I still love to see what is going on with them. :)
