Red Gingham Mini Baby Book

Cover of Mini Baby Book
Well, I have finished Ettie’s book and popped it in a box to match.

She really is a gorgeous baby!

I have steered away from traditional pinks and baby things because Mel, her mum is very modern, and I know part of the nursery decor is red gingham. With that in mind, I chose gingham papers, flowers and butterflies  with the intention, hopefully, of giving it a timeless feel.

All the embellishments are made using punches.

I think it took me about 5 hours in all to complete!
