Dr. Monday M.D. - Time for Babies...Favor Boxes

Good morning my lovelies! It's Monday again, a new week has started and at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog we have another project for your enjoyment.

 Have you been over to my team mate Patti Jo's blog to see her Dr. Monday projects?  If you haven't.
 I heartily encourage you to visit her.  She is the Queen of Dies!  She make the most stunning cards from different dies and uses them in new and fabulous ways.  You don't want to miss see them, and while you're there remember to leave her a comment so that your name will be a contender for the weekly draw.

For my Dr. Monday project I decided to do something for the babies.  I have made two sweet little gift boxes.  Just click on their names and it will take you to the YouTube site and tutorial.  

This little box is a Mini Sewing box.

This is #3014 Cute Little Tilda from the Special Moments Collection 2013.  Isn't she adorable?
She is in stock and only $4.99.  You can apply your in store credit if you like and Diana will ship immediately.

Cute Little Tilda is mounted on a star shape...
On the back of the star I mounted a small scalloped circle with a little sentiment in the center.  As you can see I've also added a little charm of a baby carriage.
Here is the box with the star tag removed and you can see that I punched holes in each side and held the box closed with some satin ribbon.

Once the handle is move to the side there is another opening.  It is kind of like a sewing box like Grandma used to use.  I applied small brads to finish this off.  Inside is just large enough for a small gift, a little necklace or earrings.  It's a darling little box.

This little box is called a Mini Open Basket.  This is the back of it to show you how the handle is formed.

As this is my baby boy gift box I decided to use # 11 Little Trumpety with Bow from the Lost and Found Collection 2014.
He is available :-) and he is so stinkin' cute!

Here he is attached to the bow a Light Blue Silk Ribbon.

Here is a side view of this Mini Basket.

Finally here are the two basket together for one last lookie-loo!

             I'm sorry to say that I can't find the little piece of paper that listed all my ingredients for these two boxes.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today.  Remember, each time you comment on one the the DT projects your name goes into a drawing to be selected for a special gift from Magnolia-licious.

Enjoying the journey,
Many Blessings,
