Sweet BABY GIRL Altered Lunchbox Tin

Altered Lunchbox Tin
As you can see by the photos, this is a lunchbox tin that was altered for a baby girl. There is enough room for all the important first year information. On the front of the lunchbox tin I have used a seersucker material. The zipper was sewn in and does unzip, revealing "Peek A Boo". Real cute. I have not seen this done before. The tin is decorated very nicely with ribbon and lace. Beautiful colored and varied ribbon on the handle help to set this box as a unique and cherished memento.
The lunchbox contains 8 cards with 16 usable and decorated sides. There is a hand painted and decorated picture frame. ALL ME is the name for the little book that contains all the pertinent information from birth stats to firsts and inoculation record. This is a complete lunchbox and is made for that very important first year of life.
Take time to look at this project and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask.
