i got the file box itself from target mainly for the blank canvas effect and the pretty chevron design on the inside. (chevron- so hot right now) the future mom's nursery theme is all about the birdies so i went with it. i drew with a white paint pen that conviently came in a pack of 2 from michaels. seriously, those pens don't last long. i drew multiple frames around the box with the idea that she would stick pictures of her adorable children in there too.
as for the second half of the gift i decided to try my hand at headbands. i'm amazed i haven't done this before now since i can not get over how cute emily looks with them on. also- i recently discovered that my soft headbands from walmart are the perfect fit for her too right now. not too tight and super comfy. so i bought a couple packs and went to work with the sewing machine, my handy gun gun, and my random assortment of felts and fabrics. here are the results of that venture
i think my favorite is the yellow flower. true confession: i almost didn't give ALL of them to her. it was tempting...
