My likkle Christening shoes

I have made these so cute little shoes as a Christening  keepsake instead of a card, we have had 2 births in the family so far this year.....I know its only January but have just found out we will have another 2 by the end of the year, you guessed it we are a big family and these are for great nieces and nephews so thought I had better make a start, the whole project was cut using scal software and the cricut the gable box was a free template from and the shoes from a craft cd (cute as a button) I added the windows as I wanted to be able to see the contents (on hindsight really should have put one window with shoes facing to the front), punched lace from a martha stewart punch, flowers from WOC, lace and silver trimming from my stash box, added a big bow to the handle and when this is needed I will be adding a tag with the details of baby's Christening.
I am adding my project to the following challenges......with it being a 3d project if it isnt allowed I am sorry please delete a template / lovely lace on white goes goes but a card
