Baby Washcloth Cupcakes

I got these as a gift at my baby shower and they were so cute I had to share. In each cupcake there are 3 baby washcloths and one cupcake liner. The Cupcakes are embellished with tool, string and a tag. They were wrapped in a bakery box.

To make fold one washcloth into thirds and roll. Fold the second washcloth into thirds and roll around the first leaving the first stick out a little at the top. Repeat with the third washcloth. Secure with a piece of tape. Place in the cupcake holder and embellish as desired.

Baby Shower Gift Idea

I have been busy all summer making new things for my baby and chose some of my favorites to make for friends for gifts at their baby showers. I made the Simple Baby Quilt, Ribbon Blanket and Ribbon Cube customized with their nursery theme. I spent a total of $20 on all materials and a Saturday afternoon making everything. I do plan to add some items from the baby registry too although it would make a nice gift on its own as well.

Christmas Cards

I got a head start on my Christmas cards today and used stickers and stamps I had bought on clearance at the end of last season and my cricut machine with the Stretch your Imagination cartridge.

Baby Shower Thank You Cards

I made these cards using my Cricut machine and the Use your Imagination cartridge. The paper for cards was cut to 8"X4".
