Making baby keepsake sets and boxes is more than passion for me. I started to think about this idea after my daughter has been born. The number of little things of her that I wanted to keep was growing and I started to check what can be done.
I love decorating big wooden boxes and filling them with smaller paper boxes for the first little treasure of babies. I always put all my imagination and try to make something incredibly sweet and touching, as if I were creating it for myself.
It was just my inspiration that helped me to create this baby girl keepsake set. It was made last summer and I took Mediterranean colors as the basis for my creation. I used decoupage paper to add flowers and butterflies on the top, as well as modeling paste to create the relief. And then I sprayed a bit of white and gold acrylic paint using a toothbrush:)
I made 4 small boxes using designer cardstock paper and decorated the boxes with so sweet and beautiful paper from the Italian brand Stamperia.
I added Prima Marketing paper flowers, paper butterflies, raffia, wooden details, microbeads and my own crochet flowers. I love crocheting tiny details for my baby boxes, I think they add that special tender touch to any baby project.
The small boxes are for keeping all those tiny baby things that any mom wants to keep through life - first baby pacifier, baby hospital bracelets, baby socks and hat, hospital tag, memory stick with first photos etc.
A baby keepsake box like this is the perfect gift on new baby arrival, baby christening, baby shower, baby first birthday. It's a very emotional gift for eny expecting or new mom.
I made this box and fell in love with it myself :) I listed it for sale in my Etsy shop and almost immediately it was sold. It was purchased for the gift and the client asked me to personalize the box with the baby's name and date of birth. It found its home in Australia. And here is the personalized final version.
If you want to surprise your friend, sister or colleague with a unique and emotional gift on her new baby arrival, get in touch with me and let me know your ideas. I will be glad to create that very special gorgeous baby keepsake set to make the new mom happy!
