This is the last post in a mini-series about projects for my friend’s baby shower…
~ ~ ~
The little tags that I made to attach to the favors and game prizes were inspired by a tag I saw on the Silhouette blog.
They were simple to make! I cut the tags themselves with my Silhouette, and they are edged with some brown ink (if I had been thinking about it when I actually made the tags, I would have inked the edges immediately, but during my creation process, I didn’t realize that I wanted to ink them ’til later, which made it harder, haha!). There’s a little strip of polka-dot washi tape topped with a yellow banner and a tiny punched heart. All the paper layers are adhered in place with Glossy Accents, but I did add a Tiny Attacher staple to the heart to make it cuter.
I reserved a few of the tags to add to the prizes we had for the shower games. Unfortunately I didn’t have an appropriate “yay for winning a game!” sentiment stamp, so I just hand-wrote “hooray!” onto the little yellow banners.
I also thought it would be nice for everyone to have nametags, since the guests were from all different parts of my friend’s life and didn’t necessarily know each other.
As you can see, these nametags are just a variation on the favor/gift tags. I printed the names onto the yellow cardstock before cutting it into strips (Wendy Medium font), and the hearts were cut with my Silhouette, rather than punched. I used nice, strong Glossy Accents to glue a loop of twine to the back, and attached a tiny safety pin.
Finally, I have been to showers in the past where the guest of honor was given a stack of cards on which to write thank-you notes. I thought this was a great idea, so I decided to make a set of cards for my friend.
I actually laid out the entire card design in the Silhouette software! It was so quick to assemble these cards once I had all the pieces cut. I stamped the sentiment on the kraft label and edged it with brown ink. The giraffe is a print-and-cut I created from the cut file I made from the giraffe design in my friend’s nursery scheme (got that? haha). A little heart and some of the polka-dot washi tape ties it all together with the tags I made.
I think I ended up making 14 of them. It was so fun to have this little extra gift for my friend!
