All buttoned up!

 Hello Crafters...
I have another baby room décor today...but it's for a baby BOY ! My previous post was for a baby girl and this too is made out of an empty CEREAL CARTON!
Yes, I have made this into a faux canvas and made a 2 side display for the baby photos with some tags for journaling and the twist here is the baby CLOTHES HANGER which is fused inside the carton and now has been altered so that the box can be easily hung anywhere in the room!
One side of the canvas has a teddy shape ( a babies first companion) I guess...with some colorful buttons to highlight the outline.
 Here I have used buttons die cut in different colors, sizes and patterns and the photo display becomes really cute with this embellishment! Have a look...
The box has been given a border using yellow and orange washi tapes...this is such an easy way to cover the edges too.
The other side has a PP with rockets and a scooter, perfect to capture a Toddlers memories....and a few buttons to add color to the corners.
The side panels of the box has a teddy pocket with tags for journaling!Some of the buttons too are made from washi tapes...they look soo cute!
The hanger has been spray painted in silver and a simple silver and blue bow completes the look.
I have stamped "My Baby" and "My Love" with the Inkadinkado stamps and colored it with markers.
The sentiments have been placed vertically on the box with acetate sheet which gives it some dimension.
And the entire faux canvas display comes to life as I adhered the photos on both the sides! This definitely is a different kind of baby room décor...What say???
Your feedback is welcome and would like to know what you feel about this.

Until then,
Happy Crafting and Re cycling.
