Baby Washcloth Gift

I started making a gift tag but ended with with a gift box and a tag. To make the box: get the measurements of the finished product, add the height all around and a perfect fit each time. This project finished 4-1/4"x 4-1/2". Cut the acetate slightly smaller (so it will finish 4-1/8"x4-3/8", keep height at 1-1/2") since it is planned to fit into the inside.

The view below shows the acetate cover (to the left) off.

This view below shows the sides of the box (1-1/2" high). The acetate cover is also 1-1/2" high fits inside the box (not outside the box). That means that the corners of the acetate are cut out after scoring.

This smaller version of "Baby" is using the scallop punch for the "blanket". For the Baby's head, use a 3/4" circle punch. Baby's body is a small scrap of 1"x 1/2": just enough to go across the top of the "blanket". Slip and attach Baby underneath the tied taffeta ribbon. "Sweet One" is attached to the top note using dimensionals. A 1-1/2" Bashful Blue + 1" Brocade Blue band is wrapped around the washcloth.
Here is the underside of the top note gift card with a half piece of the top note. Write a note here.

  • Stamp: So Many Scallops (retired Hostess), Dot Background
  • CS: Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Blush blossom
  • Ink: Ballet Blue
  • Accys: Big Shot Top Note die, Scallop Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, 3/8" Taffeta White Ribbon, Black and Pixie Pink Scrapin' Write Pen, Dimensionals, Clear Acetate
