Baby Favors - NICE!

When I first saw these cute little babies from the new Artful INKables Newborn Blessings set I couldn't wait to color them. Look at those cute little cheeks! So obviously, I choose to go NICE for the AI Naughty or Nice challenge HERE. You've got plenty of time so I hope you'll play along for a chance to win free stamps!

I decided to use these babes to make favors that could be given at a baby shower. I took my cue from this Matchbook Post-It Note Tutorial HERE. But I wanted these to be tiny so I just inserted some cut GP 110 into mine and stapled it into place like a real matchbook. They measure 2 inches wide and about 2 1/4 inches tall. Here's a pic of the inside:

The background panel was an alternate shade of cardstock stamped with a sentiment from this set and edges sponged. The babies were colored Copics, cut out, and adhered into place.

WARNING: I normally set all my pieces into place before I adhere them down to make sure I like them. However, when I let go of this one, the top of the matchbook acted like a sling shot and a little baby went flying thru the air! Ha!
