The front of the lunchbox tin.

Back of tin
Inside of lid a place for baby information.

There are 9 cards of different subjects, 18 sides.
All Me - A book that holds all important vital information, along with the
very important first photos.

The month of May will see a sweet addition to our family. My nephew and his sweet wife are expecting their first child, a boy. This will be my 3rd great-nephew. I made the above tin to send them when the baby is born. The keepsake tin will hold lots of information and very special items from the baby's first days. The information noted in the booklet and on the cards is priceless and can be easily passed on when the baby grows up and has a family of his own. He will have this tin to show to his kids. That can be so much fun when you look back on years gone by and see the information kept by other family members or personally. Tokens and other remembrances are poked into the tin and special places on the cards.
I am starting the little girl tin for my niece, who is expecting a girl next month. So needless to say everything on and in that tin will be pink and very girly. I will post photos when I am finished with it.
Remember to try something new today and happy scrappin'.
