My daughter was helping give a baby shower this weekend and so I helped her get ready for it. As you can see the theme was Wild About You. I love that stamp set and hated that it retired. It is one I will probably always hold on to. Anyway, she actually is going to use the onesies as a banner held up with small clothes pins, but she made them into a card and stamped Thank you on the inside so they could be used as thank you cards after the shower. I thought that was a great idea. We got the instructions here, which we found the site from splitcoast stampers, and used So Saffron card stock and classic ink, and Certainly Celery card stock and classic ink. Also to make the neckline and leg holes we used the 1-3/8" round punch and used that punch for the animal on the card. Round Scallop punch was also used.
The treat bags were made with the same items:
Wild About You stamp set
Certainly Celery & So Saffron card stock and classic ink. Added a touch of bashful blue cardstock. 1/4" white grosgrain ribbon. Scallop edge punch, 1-3/8" round punch and scallop round punch.
You can also find the tutorial to this box here at splitcoast stampers.
She also decided to make a diaper cake. Is this not cute. She used the same stamp set again to decorate around the cake. Wide green ribbon came from AC Moore and I am unsure of where she purchased the Giraffe, but it could not have matched better. She also added the green ribbon to the giraffe. It was absolutely too cute. Hopefully this will give you ideas for your next baby shower gathering.
Thanks for looking!
