Newborn Baby "Welcome" Gift Basket

I used ordinary brown wrapping paper [cheap from Asda] and wrapped the bundled birth announcements together to secure, removed cards again. I then trimmed the top of the 'bag' with pinking scissors and stamped image of teddy, then placed cards back in the bag.
Hand stamped images from "Bundle of Joy" set and Nursery Letters Stampin Around wheel I'd made 12 birth announcements in total: A close-up of the raised effect of the handstamped and cut teddy bear:
Ink pads: Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip Cardstock: my own. Stamp set: "Bundle of Joy" Trims: Dotty brown ribbon from Hobbycrafts Brown wrapping paper from Asda


  1. Hey, I just wanted to say that I loved these birth announcement cards. I hope you dont mind but I borrowed your idea to make some for my sister and gave you a shout-out on my blog -

    Im also a fellow Edinburgh resident so good to know where I could order stampin up stuff if required.

  2. this is a really lovely gift!

    Love Dawn xx
