Baby Blanket and Altered Box

A very good afternoon I'm finally back with the baby blanket and altered box to share with you. It did take me a little longer to make as I am still recovering from my recent operation and I have to sit down more often for a wee rest........

So here it is...warning this post is picture heavy!

The blanket is just a granny blanket and then edged with a shell pattern border, it finishes it off I think beautifully.

and here is the box on its own.....I have used Stampin Up paper to cover the box 

and then used Centura Pearl card from Crafter's Companion and  cut out a Die'sire Ornamental Oval frame after I cut it out I ran it through my machine again embossing it this gives you better effect in my opinion looks less flat! I also cut out a Die'sire Lace border 2 also in Centura pearl and embossed it again after cutting it out. *note I don't take it out the die to emboss i only take off the excess card!
I've added my all time favourite Die'sire Quilling Rose die...eek I just love it. I've added a bead cap and pearl to the center both from Beader's Companion

Look how fab the Die'sire dies cut and emboss...perfect!!
I added this little dummy i had in my stash sorry not sure where I got it from, the ribbon is also from my stash however The Ribbon Girl have a fabulous selection

I scored Centura pearl using my Ultimate Pro
The baby shoes are from my stash and the punched elements are Martha Stewart punches Branch and frond.
So there we have it....A perfect baby girl gift :) I'm delighted with how it has turned out I have to say.

Thanks for stopping by....much appreciated!

Oooh Ali this is just gorgeous. It is still a secret but my youngest son and his girlfriend told us last week they are expecting our 7th grandbaby and I so want to start crocheting a blanket for them, what is the stitch pattern for this one? Thanks so much. Kim xxx
