A friend of mine recently had a beautiful baby girl so I have been making a few things for her.
|You will need: Baby grows, bibs, Lolly pops, a cupcake box, Flat bottom coffee filters, scissors and string.|
I thought I had already done a little post on these cupcake baby grows but it seems that these photos didn't get used before so I am showing you them now. These were for another friends baby over a year ago, such a pretty and fun way to give baby clothes. So, here are some I made earlier.
You will need: Baby grows, Bibs or a smaller item like socks, Lolly pops, Flat bottom coffee filters, a cupcake box (look in the baking section at the supermarket) scissors and string.
|With the brand of lolly that I used, if you are careful about it you can remove the top layer of the wrapper leaving a clear cellophane wrapper over the lolly. Trim the stick a little shorter.|
|Take the smaller item of clothing, like shorts, a bib or socks and wrap it around the lolly.|
|Then take the baby grow. Fold it in half long ways with the sleeves tucked in the wrap this around the middle section of the cupcake. Hold in place with a loom band or string.|
|Fold your coffee filter like a concertina to achieve a cupcake case effect. Pop in your cupcake and secure the case around it with some string or bakers twine.|
Voila! Fill up the cupcake box with Baby grow cupcakes, super cute stuff!
And here are the ones I have just made...
...along with a little blanket..
...and a card!
We had a couple birthdays recently so I made a couple more cards.
And a bit late but here is a little flipbook I had a go at doing for Mothers Day.
I lined some card stock with pretty paper and washi tape. I taped the card into the half so it could be flipped open.
Behind the envelope I put this sweet scrap of fabric holding a heart pin and some little tags.
On the other side I made a little pocket to hold the botanical stickers and the flower basket sewing kit. I also stuck some butterfly buttons in with washi tape.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope its given you some crafty ideas!
See you soon, love Amber x x x
