Baby building blocks...anything but a card!

Hello!
Well, the Stamp with Us Challenge this week is a fun one - anything but a card! I started with a Christmas themed plan, but have a friend who I'm about to help to make invites for her baby shower, so must have had that on my mind as my project evolved into a baby theme! I was quite pleased to finally use the tea bag box (thats been one of the things cluttering my desk for several months now) as a template (it's one of the twinings ones that hold 10 tea bags - I was trying to get healthy & drink green tea!) Anyway I thought I'd make 'building blocks' which would hold small gifts like choccies, baby socks....or even tea bags?!!
So here it is showing how the top opens:

Stamps: Nursery necesities, tart & tangy Ink & card: Sahara sand 12 x 12 (textured), riding hood red, so saffron, baja breeze DSP: sweet slumber Other: On board lots of letters, button bouquet designer buttons, hemp twine.
And my TV tip for next week is to tune in to 'Ashes to Ashes' series 2 on the ABC 9.30pm Monday....SO FAB!!! As for anyone in England I expect you all saw it a couple of years ago!!
See ya!
