I made this album and 'blessing box' for a shower gift!
The wooden box I got from a dollar store. I painted it and mod podged it with some dp! I used acrylic stamps and embossed with vanilla ep for his name and birth date. I went with the 'crib notes' instead of the 'blessing box' so people would be free to write helpful advice OR blessings. Inside, every card has the little 'crib notes' baby stamped on it! I got the idea for this from the PaperCrafts baby creations mag!
The album is made from the Coluzzle nested file folders templates. The little shutters open to reveal a spot for baby's photo. I glued a pocket on the inside to slide the photo into, and stamped the 'introducing..' from Bundle of Joy on that pocket. The book has 12 inside pages that will fit 4x6 photos (or smaller)! The back page has a pocket with guest/gift sheets for recording at the shower.
Thanks for looking!
