Baby Shower

My dh's cousin is having a baby girl, the first one in the family since her. How fun! Having a boy myself, I couldn't wait to get my hands on all things pink. I made a diaper cake and clothes line to be used for shower decorations, then made a gift for mom of thank you notes and a coupon holder. I had a ton of fun!

This is the clothes line. I made these cardstock diapers and used punches to include the baby's name. I printed the letters on the computer. I found this idea and template here: The dresses and shoes on the mantle are the mother-to-be's from when she was a child. I thought that was so sweet!

This is a gift tag I made to add to the gift bag. I recycled the gift bag and luckily the CS matches perfectly. I don't remember the name of this stamp set but I borrowed it from a friend a while back and stamped a bunch of images. This is my last girrafe, maybe she'll let me borrow it again. I colored it in with colored pencils and of course added Stickles!

This is the gift set for mom. I made 10 than you cards, my friend Jennifer showed me how to make the box. I still think my coupon holder is an original idea from when I made one for myself 2 years ago. I folded CS to make pockets and used the BIA to put it all together. Each pocket is labeled with a different baby item using the cute Baby Firsts stamp set from SU.

I wrapped Hershey's Nuggets using Avery 8160 labels and Microsoft Word. I shaded all of the labels with pink and added the clipart image. I like how they turned out and they were so EASY!

And last, but not least, the diaper cake. I love making these. I usually make them where the diapers are wrapped in a blanket and gifts are stuffed everywhere but since I wasn't what the mother-to-be would preferred, I made a simple version. I love how it turned out!

I think she really liked how everything looked.
