New Baby Crafting

Here's the card, exploding box and high chair I made for my sister's family to welcome baby Kieran into our fold.

Handcut lettering, die-cut shrink paper rattle, plastic shoe and flock covered hand and foot brads
I forgot to take pictures of the box before I assembled it, so here's a couple. I used peel-offs and stamps on the outside layer and dome stickers and silver embossed shapes for the backs of the 2 inner layers. I left the fronts of each layer blank so that 12 photos of Kieran could be added (maybe 1 a month for the first year?). I put ribbon round the lid and covered the join with a flock covered hand brad and glued some tiny shoes to the inside base.

This is my first attempt at making one of these highchairs. I've used cream card and added acetate windows to the box. The chair has blue edged ribbon, tiny blue shoes and a little dog added. I'm quite pleased with the results too.
