Baby Shower Bib Favor/Prize

This was a special request that I received from Joanne, asking for ideas to wrap up baby shower prizes. She had purchased six 1½-inch boxes of Hershey's Kisses to give away and wanted something "cute and memorable that everyone will ewww and ahhh over." The inspiration for my idea came from a card by Meera D'Souza which appeared in the Dec/Jan 2008 issue of Paper Trends magazine. I didn't have any 1½-inch boxes handy, so I attached my finished embellishment to a Martha Stewart gift box. Joanne, I hope this helps!

  • Cardstock: colored, textured Mat Stack by DCWV, white by DMD
  • Digital: flowers from Rhonna Farrer's April 2006 Kit from Two Peas in a Bucket
  • Fibers: pink narrow ribbon from Michaels stores
  • Adhesive: mini adhesive dots by Glue Dots and Tape Runner XL by Therm O Web
  • Fonts: Lauren Script
  • Tools: Mega Scalloped Circle & Super 2" Circle punches from Marvy Uchida; 1" circle punch from EK Success
  • Other: Photoshop

Step 1:

Print or stamp your design on your white cardstock.

I used the flowers from Rhonna Farrer's April 2006 Kit and the font Lauren Script for my text. To make this into a prize instead of a favor, change the text to "Winner!" or "Congrats!"

Step 2:

Turn your 2" circle punch upside down so that you can see and center your design. Punch your circle.

Step 3:

Trim approximately 1/4" from the top.

Step 4:

Attach 2 lengths of narrow ribbon to your white cardstock using mini glue dots.

Note: stay close to the edge of the circle, as you will be trimming out the center.

Step 5:

Adhere your white cardstock circle to your pink cardstock. Line up the straight edges, and be sure to leave at least a 1/2" of pink around the curve of the circle.

Step 6:

Turn your Mega Scalloped Circle punch over. Insert your layered cardstock and center the white circle. Be sure your ribbon is clear before you punch your scallop.

Step 7:

Turn your 1" circle punch over and partially insert and center your layered cardstock. Again, be sure to keep your ribbon clear of the punch.

Note: If you have trouble punching through the double thickness of the cardstock, you may have to trace a 1" circle on your cardstock and cut it out with scissors or a craft knife.

Step 8:

Tie your ribbon into a bow and trim the ends.

Attach to your box with glue dots.

Final Step:

Be prepared for all those "oooo's and ahhhh's" ...
