Sesame Street Gift Boxes with Beth

My baby recently turned one and I decided to go with a Sesame Street theme for his party.  I had to splurge and get this SS paper pad when I saw it online at Joann Fabrics.  It is so adorable and it was PERFECT for what I had in mind to make.  I knew exactly what I was going to make when I saw the Make A Wish SVG Kit at SVG Attic.  The gift box in that set is so cute!  I especially love the bow on top :)  I sized all the box parts at 12.8" wide to make the boxes big enough to hold some chunky cars that my little one was getting for his birthday.  Well, I went a little overboard and made three of these boxes...but they were so easy to make so it didn't take me a lot of time.

Here is the first box.  I embossed the bow with a star embossing folder to compliment the stars on the lid.  I also used brown chalk around the bow and the box's side panels to add depth.  The two stripes of blue "ribbon" on the top are simply rectangles of cardstock that I cut at 1.5" wide.
 This box was made in the same way except I used a circles embossing folder on the bow.
 On this one I did not emboss the bow and I used real ribbon (1.5" wide) to decorate the lid.
Here is what they look like all you see why I had to get this paper to use, don't you!

Baby Card and Gift bag with Beth

Hello everyone!  This is Beth from Beth's Beauties and I am back today to show you some adorable baby projects that I made with SVG Attic's files.

The first one that I would like to share is a diaper card that I made using the Baby Boy set.  I cut the diaper invite at 8.5" wide for the card itself.  The circle on the front made by cutting the bottom, middle and car from the cupcake wrapper files in the Baby Boy set at 8.5" wide.  I added the stamped sentiment on a hand-cut banner and two diaper pin brads that are the Recollections brand.
My second project is a gift bag that is made using the exact same Baby Boy set!  Yes, it is for a girl, but I used the onesie from that set and cut it at 5.3" wide.  The gift bag itself is from the Basic Gift Bags collection and is the tall handled gift bag cut at 11.3" wide. The Scalloped oval is from the Holiday Cheer Gift Boxes set and it is cut at 4.5" wide.
To make the onesie girly even though it was from the boy set, I used a beautiful flower from purse 1 in the Pretty Purses set and cut it out at 6.5" wide.  I added a bow and it was done!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
