The Balloon has fabric covered Jingle Bells tied with bakers twine for sandbags, and is also a gift box. The top of the balloon pops off and I placed baby newborn beanies inside… It is held to the rest of the balloon with magnets inserted on the inside.

The card is an open book card, it folds flat but I added a bit of bulk to mine with all the flowers and ribbon etc, so I made a box envelope to match the card.

The Folio is Made with several 8.5 x 11 pieces of craft perfect joined together, then scored and folded into a folio. I then added all the specialty papers, mattes and layers. I also created a window box for the baby’s ID braclet, and an insert card with space to fill in baby’s birth day information. Plenty of spaces to add photos, journal and pockets.. I made the Folio its own matching keepsake box. I also made the folio a bag of bits and bobs to add inside as they decorated the folio, that also match the theme.

The Gift we purchased for them was a travel crib, so rather large, so I made a large Rosette with the same specialty paper and tied it with Tulle.
