Little Darlings Baby Tin

Hi everyone, it seems like it's baby time and I currently have 3 baby gifts I making. It must have been a cold To me there is nothing prettier than G45 papers and the Little Darlings collection does not disappoint. I made a tin for the first 12 months of the baby's birth to record special moments and a picture for that specific month. The inspiration I received is from Kristin Wilson and wonderful G45 designer. The outside was embellished with flat back pearls and  Prima "Say It In Crystals" also added numerous ribbons and Maya Road Tulle. 
An inexpensive way to wrap and give it that personal touch,  I purchased a kraft bag at the dollar store and embellished it with matching paper and made a little onsey tag for the gift tag. 
The inside of the tin is decorated with the beautiful paper from this collection and I fussy cut many of the pictures and added dimensional stickers for depth. I AM ROSES leaves and rosebuds were added as well as more pearls, crystals and metal butterfly from my stash. 

Month 1, 2, 3
Month 4, 5, 6
Month 7, 8, 9
Month 10, 11, 12
Each month included matching pages for a photo and another page with a journal tag to document special memories for that month.  For a detailed view, click on picture. 
To finish off the tin I created a hanging tag that included the baby's name, birth date and weight. Used Glossy Accents and added more pearls and attached a Ideology token. I hope Dominick's mommy and daddy have a wonderful time recording all there special memories with my gift.  The following items can be purchased in my Etsy store.
