  1. OMG! What a great gift idea. I wish I had come across this before my daughter had her baby 2 1/2 months ago. But I will be making one today to give to my daughter tomorrow when she and her bundle of joy comes to spend the day with me. If anyone can come up one to give to a child that is starting high school or college or one for a bride to be that would be awesome. Please share it with the rest of us. Thanks once again for another great gift idea.

  2. A friend gave me a similar gift when my daughter was born. Its a lovely idea.

  3. I love this and wish somebody had given me one when I became a new mom two and a half months ago. The next time I have a friend who has a new baby I will definitely give her one of these.
