Oh Baby!!!!!!!

Good Afternoon!!!!

One of my favorite blogs in the WHOLE WORLD is Amazing Paper Grace with Becca,,,,,omg, I drool every single time I look at her blog,,,,,,if I could ever be HALF as good as she is,,,,,,I'd die of sheer happiness!!!!

Well, Becca had up today, this gorgeous flap box that SHE designed,,,,,,,I need part of her brain. Seriously.

It looked so complicated,,,,,,,but Becca has the BEST tuts, and it wasn't hard at all!!!!!

and at a slightly different angle,,,,,,you can see the lace belly band I used to close it,,,,,,,

Seriously, this box is super easy once you've done one or two,,,,,,,be sure to use medium weight card stock you don't care a ton about for the first try,,,,,,,after that it gets easier!

you can find Becca's tutorial HERE!

I used a stack of baby boy paper I've had for YEARS,,,,,,,,not sure which one it is, because I lost the cover of the pack GAAH,,,,,,but I love that pack, because it's OH SO elegant, and not overly baby.

To make my center focal point I used my new spellbinders dies "Parisian Motifs",,,,,,it's yummy! I just stacked the largest on the bottom, two of the smaller ones in the middle and the little flourish off to both sides,,,,,,,all up on pop dots,,,,pretty!

Becca's box closes by slipping one flap into the other,,,,,,,but I wanted to use a belly band for mine,,,,,,,and so I made one out of lace, building my focal point on top of the lace,,,,simply slide off the box and it opens!

Super easy, and SUPER cute! A bit of sheer ribbon, some pearls and a pin,,,,,,,,,,,,FINISHED. It could easily hold a gift of money for a baby shower.

Here's a close up of the focal point,,,,,,,,

I hope you enjoyed the box,,,,,,,and I hope you go over there and try one of your own! Really, it's so easy!

have a lovely weekend,,,,,,,,,,,I am off to Disney World for the rest of the afternoon!
