BABY GIFT/ BIG SISTERS GIFT


Good evening, well were has today gone?  I am sure there are less hours in a day.    Got a phone call from my daughter Tammy at 11.45 am today.  It was one of those "Mummy  dearest" can you make me up a baby girl basket and two big sister gifts in those new origami boxes, and can they be ready for Wednesday - no hurry there then!!!   Then it was followed with can you ask auntie Patricia to make two cards, Patricia has been waving her magic wand too.

So I was busy all afternoon, good job I didn't have to go to work till 4.15pm.   So it was in to the spare room to my stock to see what I had for a baby girl that would fit in to a basket, I am getting a bit low on certain bits but don't want to buy more until I have to. Trying to use up what I have first.

This is what I came up with.



 I put a hooded towel, wash mitt, 3 wash products, tights, socks, burp cloth and a toy.






I just clinged it up and tied a single length of broad organza ribbon.


This is the two boxes for the to big sisters, they are only 3 and 20 months old so I kept them simple.

    Another lovely basket and fab boxes. I keep checking in my local Lidl but no luck yet with the card yet sadly.
    The parents will have their hands full with three aged three and under lol !
    Have a great evening.

  19. Hazel would you mind if I posted one of those little boxes on another blog I write. I thought they were so fab it would be rude not to have a go. I will give you a mention and hopefully you might get more traffic?

    Hugs Erika.
