A Lovely Christening Present

Posted by Silje Kristin Aunan

Today it is a great day.

Today it’s time for me to publish my first post for Maja Design and this I have been looking forward to.

In this Edition of Ett Trykk (Norwegian Scrapbooking Magazine), I have a box and a baby mobile with small mini 3D plane. Both of these are made with beautiful pattern paper from Maja Design. This are a great christening gift, whether to give it to a Baby Girl, Baby Boy or Baby Twins <3

This was originally a black box, inside of it there was a birtday gift from a very good friend. I unpacked the gift and desided to do something about the box.

On the Box I have used a lovely pattern from a great series called Nyhavn, the paper called Sitting at the Dock. One side of the sheet looks like marble and characterizes most of the box. In the corners I have used the other side and a punch from Martha Stewart to get some pattern in the corners.

I’ve spent four silver feet which I have placed in the corners in the bottom of the box. A white I have placed in the corners in the bottom of the box. A white pearl cord attached in between stance and up round the box as well. At the bottom of the lid I have a lovely white ribbon around.

On the top of the lid I made one small plateau in the same paper that I have used on the box. Before I glued it, I used one sheet from The Vintage Baby Paper Pad, on the top, then I attached the small plateau. Here I have also used whith pearl string and the same white ribbon.

Up on the plateau, I have one pair of baby shoes. On the shoes I have used the clear Wink of Stella Brush, for a glittery effect. The baby shoes are decorated alike, besides the blue and pink button of a bear and the bling on the bow.


On each side of the box I’ve decorated in typical girl and boy color. Blue and Pink. These are flowers from Wild Orchids.

In between the flowers I have used two different leaf dies from Memory Box.

On each side, I have used a pink and blue safety pin, as an little detail <3

On the back of the shoes I have made a large bow of a lace from kaBoks <3

On the bow, I have attached a large white butterfly, this is a sett of dies from BoBunny. I’ve also attached one on the front of the box as well.

You open up the lid, you will also see the same ribbon I have used on the outside of the box.

Below it, I glued white pearl string. This I have done because the baby mobile I have made will fit in the box, and the lid must not go so far down.


Then over to the gift <3

I have created a baby mobile which one can have over a child bed. This Baby Mobile is created with 8 small mini planes, created by The Vintage Baby Paper Pad. Four plane are made in pink tones and four are decorated in the blue tones. None of the planes are equal.   

The planes hang down with fishing line, which is attached to the inside of the planes.

This is a tutorial I have developed my self, Here is a link to a larger plane in my Blog.

On the planes you will find detals like wax thread, half pearls and wood.

This is the Baby Mobile along with the box <3
