There is something in the water. Babies popping up EVERYWHERE! Five (no wait, six!) new babies at work, two among my daughter’s teachers, three of my Brownie moms, and gobs here at TDC.
It has become such that I am filtering and autoclaving my wa
ter and sleeping on the couch.
If this phenomena is occurring within your circle of friends and acquaintances, chances are that you will be attending quite a few baby showers and, perhaps, hosting a couple more. You’re in need of ideas for cute decorations and themes. Today’s project features a favor/treat cup idea for your next shower and the beauty of hybrid allows you to customize it to any color scheme and theme.
I created a new hybrid template for this project, the Stork Bundle Template and Cutting Files, and it was released today in the DigiChick Shop! I’ll show you how easy it is to assemble.
Here is my print layout using papers and digital embellishments from a recent release by Sugarplum Paperie and Karen Lewis called Welcome Home. It’s primary theme is a moving-new home concept, but those lovely pinks and blues loan itself so easily to a baby theme:
Cutting files for a variety of personal die cutters are available, but I chose to cut this out by hand (then again, I’m not making 30 of them for a party next week). The first piece to assemble is the cup piece (in this layout, it’s the brown piece on the right). Depending on the treat you plan to put in it, you can make the cup like a box, or you can angle the pieces to create more of a cup. You will add adhesive to all of the outer edges to attach the front and back of the bundle.
Once you’ve assembled the package, you can fill it. For my example, I chose Easter chocolate bar minis. I bundled a few in a square of cellophane and I allowed the packaged to be held together by the ribbon ties of the favor itself. The ribbon is threaded through a couple of holes punched in the knot piece of the bundle. This is a great place to add a tag featuring guest’s names or a sentiment.
Now that all of the bones are in place, it’s time to embellish. I went simple here above and beyond the digital embellishments of the word art and the foliage- just a couple of compound flowers.
See, wasn’t that easy? I hope you enjoy making your own version of this project! and if you do, I’d love to see it so be sure to come back and link me up!!
