You will need a clear Acetate box, most Crafts stores will sell these. mine came with a white paper lid which I inked up with the spiced marmalade ink pad, I took some white card and used a pretty corner punch on it and some lemon card and cut and embossed the spellbinders doily die-cut. I Cut out the pram and decorated with the marmalade ink pad and some pearls..I have cut the pram out again in some bright yellow card and pearl white and have taken  the cut outs from the hood and put them back in the inked pram to give some variety to the look then I have stuck it onto my lemon floral doily die and glued that and the white card all onto my box lid and decorated with some flowers.

My flowers are made with a small flower punch and then inked up using the 'spiced marmalade' again and some 'tattered rose' pink from the Tim Holts range. Check out all the different colours in the huge Tim Holts range on the J & C Creations website when you get a chance there are tons to choose from.  I stuck the flowers together and put a 'pearl drop' in the middle using the 'Bisque' liquid pearl and glued these onto the corners, then added the labels on the front and some ribbon round the edge of the lid and bottom of the box and its was done.

In an ideal world this box would have the cutest pair of baby booties in or a baby toy, but as my daughter has ignored all my plea's to make me a grandmother alas I had none in the house!! So I have put some bodycreams and some mini shower gels  inside instead for the
babys new mum. If you get time this design can easily be carried over to your card making and how nice would that be to have a card to give that matches your baby gift box.
All products highlighted can be found and purchased on the

And here is a stunning Box made by Georgina 
Here is another item that I have made that is not a card. I found a wooden box in my craft room and I didn't know what to do so I have decided to decorate it. 
First I took all the hinges off and the handle so I had a blank canvas to work from. I had some Magnolia Tilda backing paper which I measured each panel and cut to size. Using Tim Holtz tattered rose distress pad I distressed all around each panel then glued onto the box. I repeated this all around the box as well as the lid. I then put the hinges back on and covered the lid with pink paper roses & buds, Tim Holts alterations "distressed doily" for which also I distress using tattered rose distress pad then finally used 2 die cut flourishes and a Magnolia Tilda topper. All the Tim Holtz products can be purchased from J & C Creations
I am sure you will agree these are 2 fabulous projects why not try them yourselves.
Have a good day
