Baby Shoe Gift Box

This a gift box made from our new card box.

I've used a pattern from many years ago to make the shoes.  Before cutting them out, I stamped them.  After cutting I added an eyelet to the strap.  Ready for the pattern?  Get it by clicking here.

The dimensions of the box are:
Top: 6 1/2" width x 4 1/2" depth
Sides: 4 1/2" depth x 2 1/8" high
Front and Back: 6 1/2" width x 2 1/8" high.  The front has a notch.
Flap: 6 1/2" width x 1 1/8" high.

The Sophia paper I cut gave a 1/4" border on each side, therefore I cut the papers 1/2" less than listed above.  The edges of the box were sponged in Hollyhock.  I also used Hollyhock to stamp the flowers on the shoes. The name Daisy was mounted after sponging the Color Ready letters.  Not shown is the tissue paper inside that I stamped in coordinating colors.
