Get a Handle on It Baby Block

I had to go to a baby shower yesterday, and got the mom a gift card. I thought about making a card and putting the gift card inside, but I wanted something prettier than just a card. I had the Get a Handle on It template on my desk from Saturday's JUGs challenge, and when I looked at it, it reminded me of a baby block. So I went with it and created this.I used Bashful Blue as my base (because they found out they are having a boy) and this paper from the Making Memories Animal Crackers collection. I then cut two blue and two celery scalloped squares from nesties and placed a dimensional letter on top to create a block. (I used ABCD letters, one for each side.) Here's the top to show the tag.I used nesties to cut and emboss the tag, and PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings for the sentiment. I attached it with some string and attached that to a sheer blue bow. Inside is some shredded paper and the gift card! Cute, huh? I really like the way it came out, and you know what? There wasn't another one like it at the shower! That's what I like about creating these things...they are really one of a kind!

Well, that's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!
