A present for the proud grandparents!

These gifts were made for my friend Lisa to give to the babies grandparents (Amelia is their1st granchild) one was also made for her great grandmother.

The baby lettering is made from MDF (bought) which I painted using baby pink acrylic paint on the inside and on the back (3 layers used on each, it didn't half soaked up the paint)!

To get the lettering I used 4 differnet sheets of patterned paper and drew around the baby on each sheet, then cut them out, adhering the papers to the MDF. They slotted together perfectly!

I added flowers, ribbons and beads to the bottom B and the A. The 2 scan pictures (12 and 20 weeks) were framed and added, (I have added the 2 different designs), lettering rub ons added to the pale papers. Babies first decent picture following her birth adhered to the middle; skittles and confetti also added.

Lastly each baby keepsake was wrapped in tissue paper before being given to the proud grand parents (they loved their gift, it was so unexpected!)
