From Courtney's Closet Challenge #40-Baby Boy Giraffe

Ahhh...this project turned out so sweet!!! It was very quick and easy. This is my inspiration project for this week's From Courtney's Closet Challenge #40. Courtney is wearing a darling little outfit with animals marching across the front of her shirt and her little jeans. I picked the giraffe from the animal group and went that direction.

I bought this kraft gable box ages ago...unearthed from my scrap closet this week. This is a good size box--big enough to add a little baby outfit inside. I think I will have to make a pink version too! They will be nice to have on hand. Wish I could remember where I ordered it from(this gable box came in lots of different sizes)...if I find them again I will post the link.

Basically I just cut strips of cardstock for the bottom edge and used my Martha scallop punch to pretty it up. I added some more little giraffes and another button with ribbon.

For the card I used a mega rectangle nestie and folded it in half. This makes a great size card for little gift cards. I decorated it up with another giraffe and some ribbon and buttons.
