Baby Shower Favour

It's my very good friend, Kim's, baby shower today and I have been working crazily to get 16 of these boxes, as well as the cookies inside, made. I wasn't really sure what to do when she asked me but then I was looking around and came across a project similar to this using the Sale A Bration DSP, and it was gorgeous. I wanted to use my (retired) Nursery Suite DSP, as well as embellishments and stamps I had on hand. There are lots of "baby" themed squares - the alphabet, the word baby and the bib. There are some feminine touches too, seeing as it's a shower and the boxes are gifts for women. There's a heart, a butterfly and some ribbon.  
The colours are Baja Breeze, Pear Pizazz, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White - I love these colours for a baby boy.

Here are my staming supplies - square #1 being the alphabet square, and square #9 being the tiny tags square:

I used my 1-1/4" square punch, but then I cut the second layer squares to 1-1/8" square. For a small scale project I found the 1/4" border the 1" square punch created to be too big.
