Back to finally post the baby goodies I mentioned last post. We have some friends who were expecting-due on my birthday, May 19. Their little baby girl was a few days overdue, and then so as not to burden them, we held off on seeing them until this weekend, which means I can now share the gift I made!
I planned to give them a gift card to Target, because everyone with a new baby can use that. But, like I've said before, I always like to give a little something extra, usually homemade, for a special touch. I decided to make stamped onesies.
I used this adorable set from Papertrey Ink. Washed and dried the onesies first, ironed them flat, stamped with PTI's hybrid ink and sewed on some buttons--easy as pie and sweet as it too! :)
I rolled the onesies up and arranged them in a sweets box (I bought a bunch of these at World Market after Christmas and got them on super sale--they are are great for homemade treats, too, of course!)--I altered the box slightly by cutting out the top with my craft knife and fitting it with a sheet of clear cardstock so the onesies can be seen from the outside.
And here is the matching card:
I wanted to keep it clean and simple, and the rainbow colors echo the button colors. The sentiment I chose precisely because their first child's room is decorated with Winnie the Pooh stuff (see what I made him here) and it went with the heart theme! The inside has a pocket on the upper portion for a gift card and more score lines to mimic the front.
Thanks for stopping by--come back soon for those garden pics I promised, and maybe a card or two. :)
