Today is National Baby Day! Now, I’m not sure how you celebrate National Baby Day—do you look at old baby pictures, hug a baby you know, buy a gift for a random baby, talk like a baby? I just dunno, but I’m going with “make a baby gift bag.”
And, apparently The Duchess of Cambridge timed her delivery just right! Happy Baby Day to TRH and Welcome, Baby Princess Windsor! How exciting!! If you’re sending them a card, maybe you should pick up this stamp set!
My niece is expecting her first baby so I’ll need a gift bag soon. She hasn’t yet revealed whether it’s a girl or boy, but I’m leaning toward boy and so I went in that direction. I have until September, so I can always make a pink one if I have to, but I’m loving all the spring greens, so I went with blues and greens for this gift bag.
The gift bag (from Walmart) was already striped, and I added the tag to just make it that much prettier. I used the Happy die with blue glitter paper (if you look closely, you’ll see the glitter), the Numbers stencil (which is on sale for $4.00 right now!) with white paste and Broken China distress ink mixed in before application, and used a felt leaf from a package of embellies.
I thought about stamping the rest of a greeting with the happy, but then I figured “Happy” was just right for a baby gift tag! And the numbers are perfect to represent the date of the birth or the baby’s height and weight.
