I made this room box to welcome my new nephew Jack. My niece, Deanna (Jack's cousin), thought of the idea of using a big block as the box. I'd remembered seeing one at Michaels. I had to rebuild it so the sides with the letters were in the correct position. The carpet was my first attempt at printing on fabric using my computer and printer. I made up the design using my Create-A-Card program. Unfortunately, I forgot to spray it with fixative so dropping glue on it here and there caused the ink to run. No problem, I just put a toy over the bad spots. I used printies from the bettieboop site (see links page). This was my first attempt at adding a view out the window. I added a night light behind the window. I had a lot of fun making this gift.
As an aside: when I started this room box, it was not known the baby was going to be a boy. I got the news the night I finished the box - in tones of green - and had to make a mad scramble to redecorate it before my niece's baby shower!
