Welcoming a new baby into the world is so much fun! After a ten year spread, I just became an aunt again. Isn’t that exciting?!!
When I was thinking about what kind of project to create with the new Echo Park Paper Hello Baby Girl collection, I thought about one of my favorite things about newborn babies … how clean and sweet they smell after having their bath! So, I decided to create a Bath Tub Gift set that any new parent is sure to appreciate.
I cut the bathtub from the star patterned side of the Girl Clothesline paper using my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file by Snapdragon Snippets (Design #267555 in the Silhouette Design Store). I then lined it with the yellow side of the Girl Alphabet Blocks paper. The rim and feet of the bathtub are created from the Light and Dark Pink papers of the Hello Baby Girl Solids Kit.
I decorated the side of the tub with a cute phrase fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I added a die cut teddy bear using the Sweet Teddy Bear Die Set along with a few stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet. Enamel dots add dimension to the feet of the tub.
Next, I added my goodies to the inside of the tub. First, I filled it with white paper shred, then added an assortment of baby washcloths, baby lotion, baby wash, baby shampoo, and diaper rash cream.
I trimmed the pointy end from a couple of bamboo skewers, and then tucked them in among the goodies to create a banner across the top of the tub. The “BABY” pennant shapes are from the Ephemera pack. I punched the triangular pennants from the Onesies paper, then strung them all together on white twine between the two bamboo posts. Anything looks more festive with a banner, don’t you agree?!
Wrap the entire tub in cellophane for gift-giving, or place the tub on a cake plate for a cute centerpiece for a baby shower! Either way, the new mom in your life is going to love having some new baby bath supplies on hand!
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy creating!
It’s been a long time since we have had a baby in our home, and that makes creating baby projects extra fun! Especially, using the NEW Sweet Baby Boy collection
! Today’s project is a fun baby bottle gift box with matching 3D paper shoes.
Use the bottle to hold a gift card or small gift and add some candy (every new mom needs chocolate, right?!) to the accompanying baby shoes! I think they would look so cute packaged together in a cellophane bag tied with a pretty ribbon! You could even use this set as decor for a baby shower. Let’s take a closer look!
I created the baby shoes using a cut file that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (Baby Sneaker by Daniela Moscone
). The cut file includes one shoe. To create the pair of shoes, I simply copied all of the pieces and then reversed them in the Silhouette Design Software using the Object>Mirror>Flip Horizontally command.
This bottle box by SVGCuts.com
is very easy to put together. I used foam squares to give the decorative panels and the label on the front dimension.
I hope you enjoyed these sweet baby projects and found some inspiration to create a project for the new baby in your life.
