Baby shower gift

I'm going to a baby shower today for a friend of mine - can't wait to see her with her pregnant belly!! I made her a mini scrapbook to hold a picture from each of the baby's first 12 months and a page for writing down milestones or notes of things she wants to remember. And I also found the cutest onesies with jungle animals and was looking for a cute way to package them. I had purchased a Papertrey Ink template a few months ago and thought it would be the perfect holder for these onesies! I just rolled up each onesie so they would all fit in the box and tied some ribbon around them to keep them from drooping.

I used the colors from the onesies as my guide and found some retired designer series paper with the same colors! It's actually a winter-themed paper, but I think it works just fine. I hope she likes it!!



Stamps: Baby Feet (All Night Media)
Cardstock: Old Olive, Kraft, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Frosty Day designer series paper (retired), Tangerine Tango striped grosgrain ribbon, hemp twine, crop-a-dile, "From the Office of" template (Papertrey Ink)
