By • 1 year ago with one reply

For this DIY Series, we’ll teach you how to use products from our site to add the perfect, personalized touch to a baby shower. 

First, scratcher postcards for a “gender reveal” baby shower. 

 Unknown

Is it a boy or a girl? Turn an ordinary baby shower into an occasion to announce your baby’s gender with family and friends.

Gather everyone and have them participate in an interactive game, where they’ll have to scratch a card to find the answer.

Unknown-1

Supplies: 

1. Gender reveal postcard (this is a template product, so feel free to include the messaging inside the balloons).

2. Silver acrylic paint

3. Dish soap

4. A plate

5. A paintbrush

6. A coin

Unknown-2

Step 1: Personalize the scratcher postcard with the correct gender.

Step 2: Pour three parts acrylic paint and one part dish soap on a plate.

Step 3: Mix the paint and dish soap together.

Step 4: Paint inside the balloons to cover the answer, using 2-3 coats of paint. Let the paint dry between coats and repeat until you can no longer see the text.

Step 5: Let dry. (It might take up to an hour to dry).

You’re done!

Provide the finished scratcher postcards to your guests and hand them coins. Have them guess the gender and scratch to see the answer! Whomever gets it right can get a special treat.

One thought on “DIY Baby Shower Series: Scratcher Postcards”

  1. Nice idea! My only suggestion is to use commercially available scratch off stickers. About $5 bucks for 100, search for them on the web. Seems messy to paint circles on cards, finished product looks too DIY. Stickers may add the finishing professional looking touch! Good luck!
