Posted by Graphic 45 01/04/2018 27 Comment(s) Home Decor,#SimplyG45,

Hello, G45ers!

 Today we have a 60-Second video tutorial by Lena Astafeva to share with you. This Little Darlings - Deluxe Collector's Edition Baby Box features our Deep Rectangle Matchbook Box and Shabby Chic Door Pulls, and  it can be made in under an hour. With just a few fussy cuts and some assembly, you can have your own, perfect for storing mementos for a newborn. With a quick swap to a different collection, you could create a similar project for all different types of occasions as well. Check out the YouTube tutorial below. 


Baby Box

By Lena Astafeva


“Today I’ll show you a Baby Box. We can put baby’s memorable things in the box. We can also keep photos or ribbons for hair in it. It is very capacious. I used Little Darlings - Deluxe Collector's Edition and Staples - Deep Rectangle Matchbook Box.” ~Lena
