Baptism Curvy Keepsake Boxes

Thursday, July 30, 2015

Two friends of mine are transitional deacons in the Catholic Church (this means they are one step before priesthood and have the ability to perform Baptisms, amongst other liturgical actions) and they
asked me to design and make boxes for them to take home to their sisters in the Philippines.  Both women have recently given birth (one to a girl and the other had a boy) and wanted little boxes to give to guests attending their babies' baptisms.  I was really honoured to have been asked for such a special commission.  Here's what I created for them. 




And here is a picture of the 50 pink boxes laid flat, ready for the journey over to the Philippines.  


Fiona's notes:
  • To save time, I die cut two sides at a time and embossed the sides three at a time.  With 150 sides to make that really helped cut down on the time it took to make them all.
  • The little cross is something I printed on the computer and then coloured with my Stampin Write Markers
