Paper Baby Shoes in a Clear Covered Box - Hand Stamped Sentiments

The challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments 120 here is to make anything but a card.  So, I decided to make some baby shoes out of paper and make a clear covered box to put them in.
To make the baby shoes I used the template from here

The shoes were made using Pretty in Pink designer paper.  The strap was attached to the side with a Boho blossom flower and a pink brad.  Along the top of the strap a strip of pearls was attached.
The image on the toe was stamped with Versa Mark on Whisper White paper and embossed with pewter embossing powder.  It was cut out and attached to the toe using the fabric adhesive roll. I put some 1/8`` ribbon around the soles of the shoes.

The box was made using 4 die cuts of the scalloped envelope die and using sticky strip to adhere them together. The base was decorated with the other side of the Pretty in Pink designer series paper. The pink ribbon adhered around and on top of the DSP  is retired SU ribbon. The clear acetate top was made using a medium window sheet (now retired)

Stamp: Every Little Bit
Inks: Versa Mark
Papers: Pretty in Pink, Pretty in Pink designer paper, Whisper White
Accessories: Scallop Envelope die, Medium Window sheet, 1/8 `` pink ribbon, 3/8 `` pink ribbon (retired SU), Pewter embossing powder, fabric adhesive roll

I also made a coordinating 4 by 4 card and an oval tag to go with the box.  Although the card is not part of the challenge, I am putting it at the bottom of this post.  I used the stamp set: Baby Bundle and Teeny Tiny Wishes, and the image was colored using SU markers.
You an make these shoes in any color.  I have made them in blue, yellow and green as well.  They make a great baby shower gift (use in place of a ribbon on top of a present) or a gift to a new mom.
