Well we hope for mommy’s sake he will be little. My sister in law is expecting her first child next month, on Saturday we had her baby shower. I have had this paint can sitting around for a while and decided that it was about time to get it decorated. I saw a blog back in January that had a cute baby paint can and I knew I had to do something similar. I wrote down the quote and the address but I missed or added something to the blog address so I don't know who to give the credit to. Here is what I wrote down, www.stampininthesun.com, so if you know who’s blog I was checking out please let me know. I always like to give credit where credit is due.
This is the finished paint can. For the blue paper on the top half of the can I used some really old DSP, it was only one sided. I think it was called Pool Party. The bottom of the can uses the retired Close to Cocoa prints dap.
The poem on the lid of the can says:
Baby books are great ideas,
but sometimes you're too busy.
Living with a little one
can put you in a tizzy.
Milestones pass too fast at times
to find the proper page.
So, jot a note of each event
with date and baby's age.
This box holds a ton of little tags, so that she can jot down the date and what happened on that date, for example, March 20th- First bath. I thought that the box would be a great way to keep the unused tags separate from the used ones so she didn't have to look when she was in a hurry to write the events down. The box is made from the new Stampin’ Up die for the big shot. It was so easy to make. I did however add an extra piece of cardstock on the inside of the box to make it a little more stable and so that it wouldn't come apart as it was bounced around inside the can. (I just measured the bottom of the box and cut a rectangle about 1/8 of an inch smaller and stuck some adhesive on in and pushed it in the bottom of the box.)
