It's a Boy! It's a Girl!

I made up some favors to announce a new baby's arrival!!! It might be a little too complicated if you're planning to make a ton of them...but, maybe you could make these for some of the really special people in baby's new life:


The piece on the left (in the photo below) is the part to hold a lollipop...it measures 1" x 2" (score at 1/4", 3/4", 1-1/4" and 1-3/4"). Then, using a 1/4" hole punch make 2 holes as shown below (you may want to click on the picture to get a closer look). The piece on the right is the card...it measures 4" x 5" (score at 2" and 3").



To make the lollipop holder...fold along scored lines to form a square. Overlap the two ends and secure with double stick tape. Insert the lollipop stick through the 2 holes you punched earlier and adhere it to the right inside flap of the card. I also used a ribbon to tie the lollipop on. Here's a side-view shot:



Here's a look at the finished card:



Here's the inside:



I added an area on the left inside flap where you can list baby's name, height, weight, etc. And for a baby girl:





Stamps used: #C115 (New Baby), #A115 (Oh Boy) and #A116 (Baby Girl). It's Friday!!! Have a great weekend!!!

Hi Jean!! This is such a cute little favor. You are always so creative. I am so happy because the Ace in town now carry a huge section of crafts and I saw your stamps over there. Just the little ones so far, but I'm happy they're available! Hope all is well with you. Take care and hope you have a great weekend!! =)

Gosh, this is a great idea and a very attractive card! I can't think of anyone having a baby, but know that this idea will be useful for other cards/favors. Thanks for sharing your idea. Lynn

This announcement is sooo cute and I may just use it, since we became the proud grandparents of a beautiful baby girl, Zoe Marsella, last evening (14th) at 5:15 p.m.
