We were invited to a couples baby shower today. I always like to give the same baby shower gift. First, the best non-fru-fru gift ever (IMHO) is the Ultimate Crib Sheet. I get that for new moms even if they’re not registered for it. Then the very first time they have to change the bed in the middle of the night, they call me the next day and thank me. I did the same when I first got one with my first son. Oh my. It is so not a sexy gift, but what a necessary thing!
The other thing I always like to give are thank you notes. If I find out what the baby’s name is, I usually personalize them, like these. But if I don’t know the name, I usually do generic baby thank yous. So, today, I made 24 thank yous and a little stationary box to put them in.
Our friends are having a girl. And well, that’s an opportunity for me to do something PURPLE!!!
I have loved this jammies stamp from the first time I heard about A Muse. And it screams to be flocked just like soft, fuzzy jammies like in real life, so that’s what I did. I used one of my new Cuttlebug edge embossing folders for the bottom. Sweet! (and purple!).
Finally, I decided to make a little box to put them in. The box is a bit bulging from 24 cards and 24 envelopes. I think it’s the ribbon that making it so.
I used the Basic Grey magnetic snaps (LOVE these) for the closing mechanism.
The scallop edge was made with my new Stamping Up! Scallop border punch.
Thanks for checking in!
