It's A Girl by Sandy Ang
Supply list: Paper: Best Creation, Tags: Best Creation, Stickers: Best Creation, Buttons: Junkitz, Other: paper clip, cord
Design Notes: I used Best Creation Safari Boy stickers to create a whimsical altered project.
Using a supersized paperclip, I made this little decorative item for a baby girl shower. It was fun playing the various shapes : from the length of the giraffe's neck, through the swirly stems and circular florals. And it was a moment of pure serendipity when I saw the blue acrylic button with the word pure in my stash. It fit perfectly in the 'belly' of my Mama giraffe to represent the little baby that's coming.
