Welcome Baby Boy

Lots more boy themed goodies today - with a touch of sparkle, bunting and inking.

I started off creating the box, it's similar to an explosion box, but instead of layers of paper and it opening all the way around, this box only opens on one side giving you lots of room to decorate.

I created the box out of Bazzill cardstock and then layered on some vintage baby boy papers.  I inked the edges before adhering.  Then I added the straws and bunting.  The bunting flags came in a pack that I bought at Spotlight - it matches the papers.  I added the "Little Mister" die cut, then a 3-in-1 word circle (Boys) and a strip of acetate film.

I added a Boy themed tab to the side of the box too.

At the top of the straws, I added little white pom poms and twine bows.

When you lift the lid, the front sides of the box fall down and reveal sparkly sentiments, die-cuts and an image from Mo's Digital Pencil that I coloured with my Copics.  I added tiny black gems to the buttons.
