A ‘welcome’ gift for the birth of a baby

A ‘welcome’ gift for the birth of a baby

Create your own ‘welcome’ gift box for a new arrival.

The birth of a baby is a very special event indeed. Whether you are a family member, friend or acquaintance, it is lovely to drop in with a little welcome gift.

By Kerstin.

Here in north Germany, we celebrate a new baby with our traditional brandy, and I think it is a nice gesture to include a little welcome gift too. Or perhaps the gift could be a pretty box to save the first possessions of the new arrival in, such as a first dummy for example.

A home-crafted gift box, with a closure that already exudes luck, is perfect for all this and is really easy to make too.

What you need:

•    Mini Woodies stamp with dummy design
•    Mini Woodies stamp with baby shoes design
•    Woodies ink pad ‘Calm Cloud’
•    Woodies ink pad ‘Pretty Pink’
•    Coloured card in two different colours
•    Scissors
•    Glue
•    Ribbon/string

This is how it’s done:

You can easily find a template for this style of box on the internet if you type in ‘clover leaf box’. I then chose my card colours to match the Woodies ink pad colours ‘Pretty Pink’ and ‘Calm Cloud’ and then I created my boxes accordingly.

I added a white paper band, decorated with mini dummies, to the little girl version of the box. For the blue version, I used a light grey satin ribbon and a blue/white string, which are held in place at the front of the box by a round tag. I decorated the tag using a Woodies stamp with baby shoes motif.

Of course, these designs are only two of the many creative possibilities, to how the box can be personalised. For example, a further idea might be to integrate the name and date of birth of the new baby.

I wish you lots of fun making your own box and by the way, a box like this is also great for last minute gifts, as you are sure to already have the supplies needed at home.

Lots of love, Kerstin
