Diaper Bag Card
Hope you're all having a good Sunday and ready to start a new week!! Recently I've had babies on my mind since my good friend, Sandra (and her husband), are awaiting the arrival of their baby!! Here's a card I made in the shape of a diaper bag. The finished size of the card is 3" x 5". I glued some stripey paper on the two sides and then rounded all the corners. The middle dotted paper was glued on the sides and bottom, but I left the top edge unglued so I could slip a little note inside. Then I used double stick tape to attach the ribbon border/handle. I used a Marvy (blue) tag punch to make the card insert shown below:
Stamps used: #2024 (Duckies) and #6002 (Sweet Baby). While I was on a stamping roll, I thought I'd try to use the same idea to make a baby shower favor:
I used some Ghirardelli chocolate squares for this favor. It's a little different from the card in that I added a 1/4" section on the bottom to make it wide enough to hold the candy. Cut a piece of paper 4-1/4 " tall x 3-1/2" wide... then make a score line 2" from the top and then another score line 1/4" away from the first. Use double stick tape to keep the candy in place.
Thanks for stopping by!!
