Altered Altoids Box for Ella






My granddaughter is almost 1 1/2 years old.  I had created the first altered Altoids box when Ella was about 2 weeks old.  She has grown so much, a second box was needed.  I made the boxes look different on the top so my son would know which box was which. 

Coastal Cabana was chosen for the color to match at color of the box.  I used sticky tape to hold the ribbon to the paper.  There are pictures on the back of each card; that extra weight helps the cards stand alone.

My son is such a proud and doting father!  He takes the boxes to work with him.
