DIY Baby Shower Series: Baby Bodysuit Cupcakes

By • 1 year ago with no replies yet

Fans of unique presents for baby showers know that diaper “cakes” — rolled up diapers made to look like tiers on a cake — were extremely popular last year. Why limit yourself to one cake when you can make a few “mini-cupcakes” with our adorable baby bodysuits? They’re easier to pass out and hold more variety for the mom-to-be.

Unknown-4

Supplies:

1. Baby bodysuits

2. Jumbo cupcake wrappers

3. 1 yard of 1.5 inch ribbon (1 foot per “cupcake”)

4. Red pom-poms

5. Double-sided tape

Unknown-6

Step 1: Fold the baby bodysuit in half, length-wise. Then, fold in the sleeves, followed by folding the suit in half again (lengthwise).

Step 2: Once the bodysuit is in a long strip, start at one end and roll the baby bodysuit until it’s a tight spiral. Attach double-sided tape to secure the spiral (or “onesie cupcake”).

Step 3: Take a piece of ribbon and attach it to the double-sided tape. Wrap around the “cupcake” completely. Take one more piece of double-sided tape to secure the cupcake and ribbon together.

Step 4: Take a red pom-pom and stick it on top of the cupcake (like a cherry!). This will also add a nice pop of color.

You’re done!

DIY Baby Shower Series: Flyer Candy Bar Wrappers

By • 2 years ago with no replies yet

In our second DIY Baby Shower Series, we’ll cover how to add an extra touch to a baby shower favor by making a personalized wrapped candy bar wrapper.

Everyone loves chocolate, so send your guests off with something that’s thoughtful and extra sweet.

Unknown-1

Supplies: 

  1. Baby shower candy flyers
  2. Scissors
  3. Double-sided tape
  4. 1.55 oz candy bars

When choosing your design, feel free to play around with the text in the nutritional facts. Add personality and humor to the favor, while tying the theme to your shower.

Unknown-2

Step 1: Purchase your flyer with your personalized text and image. Note flyers come in a pack of 25, so you’ll need to adjust the amount to your party size.

Step 2: Cut along the lines of the wrapper until you have the amount you’ll need for all of your guests.

Step 3: Center the main image of your flyer to the top of the candy bar. Once centered, flip the candy bar over and fold the small side of the flyer to the back, making a crease. Then, take about an inch of double-sided tape and apply to the back of the wrapper.

Step 4: Fold the longer side over and press to seal. You’re done!
