December's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to December's Stamp of the Month blog hop! This month we are showcasing "Special Care" a set of  6 stamps. If you are coming from Dawn's blog, you are on the right track. It's okay if you are starting here; just be sure to complete the circle so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects my fellow consultants have created.







When I first saw this set I immediately thought babies, so I decided to make a gift/keepsake box. I used the "Babycakes" paper packet and cut the box on my Cricut using the "Artiste" cartridge.








To make the box sturdy, I used the zip strips on the top and bottom.







I also random stamped a lining for the bottom of the box.
