Well, it’s a new year and my new Grandson will be here very soon! (Less than 2 weeks!) So today I’d like to share with you a gift bag that I made that’s perfect for a new baby gift! (Sorry about the photos, it’s been overcast here for several days – not great photo taking weather!)
I started with a large white plain gift bag from Michaels and added cardstock and patterned paper as the base. I cut the stork and baby from the New Arrival cartridge and the crib, mobile, and onesie from the 9 Months cartridge.
I added a doily that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist under the baby and stork.
I love using lots of layers on my cuts and putting pop dots between the layers to give my images even more dimension. Then I added some Glossy Accents and Distress Inks to my cuts. The rug is just a circle that I modified in Cricut Craft Room and turned into an oval. I created the tag with my Grandson’s initials on it in CCR by welding a 2” circle to a 3.5” x 2” rectangle using shapes from Cricut Craft Room Basics. Then I welded a slightly smaller rectangle inside the larger one to create an open ‘window’ and then welded his initials in the opening using Gypsy Font. I cut an extra tag layer without the window and initials as a base and used pop dots between the two layers. A mini brad and twine are the finishing touches.
One of the little gifts that I am adding to this gift bag is a hat that I knitted myself with my Knifty Knitter (which is also made by Provo Craft!) I hope that he will be able to wear it when he comes home from the hospital.
Here is the cutting recipe:
New Arrival -
- baby – 2.5”
- stork – 3.5”
9 Months -
- onesie – 2.3”
- crib – 4.5”
- mobile – 4” (image was flipped in CCR and a skinny rectangle from CCR Basics welded to the mobile to make it taller)
Thanks for visiting and keep watching for more baby projects that I’m making for the baby shower!
Until next time, Happy Crafting,
