All Packaged Up

As you probably already know, I love PTI's templates designed by Lauren Meader.I put this quick "box" together for a shower gift for my sweet cousin who is expecting next month! My daughter wanted to give her own gift and in my mind I was thinking cute teddy bears or something soft and cuddly. When she picked out bibs leaning toward the bold side I did not have any paper to match. I made the striped paper, then sewed it on, added ribbon and a little giraffe on a circle tag, held on by a decorative paper clip. It really was done that fast and it makes such a cute presentation too :>)!

I also made a book for the Dad to be! My Sister picked up goggles, a poncho, rubber gloves and a face mask to add to the book and now the new Dad to be is ready to change diapers!I got this idea from Stamping with Annie B. I picked up a premade journal from Michael's that was a neutral color background with flowers in the center. I then pasted on the stamped image to hide the flowers. Note: I peeked in the packaging before I bought the journal to make sure there were no flowers printed on the journal paper!
Details: Box - PTI "From the Desk of" template and Book - KLM Designs Little Stinker digi stamp.
