My cousin is due next month with her first bundle of joy! Maria and Matt have chosen to be surprised with the gender of the baby, hence decorating the baby's nursery in a neutral jungle theme. I used their color template for the nursery to create this adorable shadow box. With scrapbooking supplies such as little clothespins, fancy scissors, and cute giraffe stickers, this lil box took just under an hour to complete.
The little items on the clothesline can be removed by pressing the clothepins to write the baby's name and stats: date of birth, height, weight, time of birth, etc.
The bottom of the shadow box has a layered space for a picture of the baby, surrounded by the cute giraffes. The middle giraffe appears when you close the shadow box lid. I also made and gave them this little mini pop-out, jungle-themed scrapbook. Here is the front of the album:
Here is the back cover of the album, which includes two pull-out tags for pictures or journaling:
To open, just undo the ribbon and the album pops open revealing four squares:
Two of the squares pop open even more, allowing more space for pictures and journaling:
I wrapped up the shadow box and added this cute giraffe and scrapbooked tag:
I scrapbooked a little paper bag, a little lion tag, and crimped some green paper to look like jungle grass to place the mini scrapbook in:
Now that's a presentation fit for a jungle! I can't wait to see the mini scrapbook album and shadow box completed once the baby arrives!
