Day of Green and a Gift Idea
Happy St. Patrick's Day
to everyone, hope you
are having lucky day!
A friend of mine is expecting
her first child-a boy at the
end of the month! So for her
shower gift I wanted to do a
little something different.
I gathered my supplies.
First, I needed a wood box
and I found this beautiful
cigar box at our neighbor-
hood gas station!
I made several tags for this project.
You'll see these later.
I covered the cigar label with
scrapbook paper and ribbon
and then put the baby's name
on his STORYBOX.
Using the same paper I put a
label on the inside of the box
that says: "Tell me a story
about..." On the tags I put
prompts for my friend and her
family so they have story starters.
I also made a list of other prompts
that she can add to the blank tags.
So when my friend's son gets bigger
he can pull a tag out of the box and
ask for a story about the day he was
born, his name, his grandparents etc.
She can also use the box for baby
mementos or anything related to
her little bundle.
I really like this idea as an alternative
to "the baby book." On the inside, I
also made a tag with information on
who made the box.
*This idea could also be used for the
first day of school, graduations,
engagements and weddings.
