Last evening I was invited to a surprise baby shower for a friend of mine who is expecting. She has three boys and the baby that she’s expecting is a girl! I wanted to make a little something girlish and sweet for her in celebration of this new baby girl who will enter the world in a couple of months so I made this basket of baby girl goodies with a cupcake theme for her and her baby girl.
Check out these adorable cupcakes! They are made from little socks.
I got the idea from Lauren Meader. You can see her instruction video here. They are so much fun to make. I stitched a button on top of mine with embroidery thread. The thread goes the whole way through from top to bottom to keep it all together. Mine kept falling apart. Probably because I didn’t use two sizes of socks like Lauren recommends. I like the button on top, though. I think it looks like a cute little cherry. it sort of dresses them up a bit.
I love being able to make fun gifts like this using my scrapbook supplies to dress things up and add some flair. Just a bit of paper and a little stamping or some stickers really can bring life to an otherwise just OK idea.
Gotta go. This is my last day to prep and serve the lunch meal at school (thank God!!!). Then tomorrow and Saturday I’m off to a scrapbook retreat at Page By Page. I’m looking forward to scrapping with some great friends and hopefully making some new ones.
Have a good one!
