    Default Any ideas?

    I need some help girls!

    I'm trying to come up with ideas for my baby shower thank you cards. I'm thinking something very simple. Something like a simple baby carriage with buttons...or a baby head with a little swirly hair on top (but I can't think of how to make the eyes if I do that one)

    Any other ideas? I need to make a lot of these (like 50+) so they need to be very quick and easy but cute! Oh, and gender neutral!

    I'll try to think of something, but I'm fairly new at card making.

    Maybe baby blocks? You could use up misc. number/letter stickers.

    Well, I'm not a paper scrapper, so take my thoughts lightly

    I'm thinking if you need to make 50 or so of them that you should do something that you don't need to hand make a lot of the pieces. For example, if you have a punch that you can punch out a rattle shape or use a cricut rather than hand-making a carriage. If you keep that in mind, it may help you decide on a design.

    Good idea Stephanie. I have a circle punch that would work for a baby's head (or rattle top or something) but I don't have a Cricut.

    okay this is a crap drawing cuz I did it in paint but here's an idea.




    Use your circle cutout (or trace something like a small lid if it needs to be bigger) to make 50 circles ...cut out that top left quarter chunk ...use two buttons on each as the wheels and you have 50 baby carriages...I put the extra line as maybe a small piece of ribbon or paper? Anyhoo, just an idea. Good luck with whatever you choose!

    YES! The baby carriage is super easy. If you could cut out like 50 circles in one day, they would come together in a snap. Then use blue and pink or green buttons for the wheels. You could use ribbon or just a strip of paper on the carriage.

    That carriage is super cute. I was thinking something just simple like that. Good idea to use my punch and cut out a part of the corner!! I hope my punch is big enough. I'm going to test it out tomorrow.

    Charys made a carriage one. Here is it with some other cute ones. (I know you saw this already, but I thought it might help!) It was super cute. I tried to make one, but mine is not as cute as hers!
