Baby Carriage





My friends, Heather and Tony, are expecting their first baby next month. I've been wanting to making one of these carriages since I stumbled onto Mary Jo Albright's blog, Beauty Lies Within. You can see her post here. After several attempts and a lot of paper wasted, I came up with a pattern for the carriage top. The flowers in the carriage are made from onesies and a paper punch. The base of a carriage is a flower box that I bought in the dollar section of Target a few years ago. Once I had the first one done, I went a little crazy and emptied all of my flower boxes and made a few more.




Supplies:
Paper: DCWV, Coredinations
Misc: Paper punch, tissue paper, buttons, dmc floss, sticky strip, flower boxes, ribbon, pearl stamens, white floral tape, pop up dots


Thanks for stopping by,

Beth

  4. These are adorable! Can you tell me what you used for the wheels so that they lifted up the base of the carriage? How did you attach them? Thanks!
