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.
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.
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
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).
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.
