Rubber ducky you're the one: JustRite week

Its JustRite week at Stamper's Dream! Here is a little birth announcement/gift that I created. To make the tag, I used the Celebrations Demi Phrases, Tiny Words and Centers, and finished the bottom with our little man's name in Times New Roman 15 pt font. The box and gifts have been wrapped with plastic wrap and tied with a ribbon.
This is a look at what is on the inside of the box, the darling duck (my singing inspiration), and a photo magnet that uses the Baby Ensemble stamps. That duck is NOT rubber. It is CHOCOLATE! Seriously, you can EAT IT!! (the little man took care of that tonight) Isn't it fantastic? How fun would they be at a baby shower? I found them at Target during Easter. They are made by Palmer.
Some of you have asked how I make boxes myself. Well, the photo above is my little drawing and how I work things out. I start by measuring the object. Then I figure out how tall I want the sides. I am a pretty visual person, so drawing it out and writing out the math really helps me make a better box. Hope it helps a little bit. :)

Then I cut and score the cardstock to the sizes needed. My Scor Pal has made this process much easier! You can see where you need to cut the sides. I adhere my tabs on the inside, to keep the box appearance cleaner.

I created a little holder for the duck, the same way as the box, but before assembling, cut a Nestabilities oval out.

Here is the duck resting in his box and holder. The wave border was added to the top to finish it off.


Make sure and check out what Michelle and Laurie have created for today!!
