Pretty packages 2

The incredible hostess of this party is The Blackberry Vine .  She has a copy from her awesome Mother-in-Love at Entertaining Women of this book that I would love to own. 
It is such a beautiful book that it inspired a Meme! 
I believe I've flipped thru it while relaxing at Barnes & Noble that happens to be in the same shopping strip as my Massage Envy.  ; }  I'm preparing a shower gift so I'm gonna tag in again.

I made this special lil matchbook album for a baby boy coming soon.  I've embellished a set of 6 cards to go with it to complete my gift.  Now, how to gift it at the shower?  I started with a pop-tart box and cut the top flaps off.  I've finally run out of baby boy gift bags but never to worry.

This is a scrap of wrapping paper I used for my baseball boys.  Ya'll know the pieces you should just throw away because it is so much trouble keeping the lil scraps.

Here are the cards I whipped up for Logan's Mom to use for thank you or progress report cards. lol

This precious ribbon came from Dawn at Cottage State of Mind when she sent me her blog-a-versary gift.  It is perfect for securing the set of notecards.

I nestled them nicely down into the box and used white tissue to coddle them.
I used scraps to make the card and taped it onto the front.
Can't wait to see pics of this sweet lil boy coming soon.

  1. So glad you came by for a visit. You're a talented gal, Denise Marie! You create some cute things- I'm not real crafty, myself...
    I love that hood that will be going into your kitchen- can't wait to see the finished product. I see you were a recipient of Dawn's giveaway, as well. I hope to meet her in person one day- she lives about an hour away from where my son was living last year. His things are still in storage there, and we have to make a trip out to get them. She is a genuinely nice person! Have a great rest of the week. Nice to meet ya.
