NEW BORN GIFT

A few years ago a school friend who'd been trying for a baby for an age finally had a baby daughter, she was utterly over the moon and I made a little gift for her.  Last November she managed to add to her family with another daughter and then came the dilemma of what to make, I had a considerable think about this but eventually opted to make something similar to the original.
It folds up into a box
This is sat on the table.
 The back of it documents all the Facebook messages she got (I thought it was a good way of documenting all these lovely messages!
 Up close
 It is a little different from the original, but I had fun making it and it was well received, in fact if you wanted to know what the original looked like
Hope you are having a good day!

  2. What a thoughtful gift, and so lovely too! It's a great idea to record the FB messages, which would otherwise be lost.

  3. They are beautiful. I love the Facebook message idea. One of my friends did something similar with a text conversation with her son because it was funny and would have been lost! That is why we scrapbook - because we have kind of lost the written word - no letters really any more to keep and treasure. Hope you are ok and if this is comment number 2000, blame the malfunctioning ipod, jenx
