FOR COUSIN'S NEW BABY
Well my cousin has just had a baby girl that she desperately craved for after two boys and so whilst I've been laid up with my bad back I've managed over several days to produce this. It's a book with a frame on the front and inside it has pockets with pull out tags, the original idea came from a Project class run at the Craft Box at Elsecar - http://www.thecraftbox.biz/ where we did a small square frame onto a book.
The frame I've used is 7" x 5" and was bought for a pound, my other half has then removed the metal pegs from the back and sanded it for me! I've then painted the frame with acrylic paints, he made me the book that it attaches to and then I've made five envelopes inside, it's a great size to include photos and even momentos from the hospital like the wrist band etc. Once I've got her new address I'll be safely packing it up to be sent to her - hope she likes it - it's always nice to do something pink for a change!
