Baby Banners

My friend came over for some much needed crafting time a couple week ago. She was throwing a baby shower for her friend who was in the hospital on bed rest with TWIN GIRLS. Needless to say my friend wanted to make name banners for the mommy-to-be to spruce up the rather dull hospital room.

We used the Mother's Day Bouquet Cricut cartridge for the circle and the flower shapes. The circles were cut at 8" and the flowers were cut at 6.5". The letters are from the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge and cut out at 6". I love how bold and simple the letters turned out. The mommy is a no frills kinda gal so we kept the banners really simple.

Then we made this diaper cake with Newborn size diapers. Isn't it so cute! My friend had the best idea - inside the cake, helping to keep it's shape and keep it strong, are two Diaper Genie refills. We wrapped them in white tissue paper so you can't see them. My friend bought the flower and pinwheel decorations that we stuck on the sides. We made the letter "B" using the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge and glued it to a bamboo skewer. Couple rhinestones later and we were done.

My friend said the mommy-to-be was super thrilled with her decorations. We hope she puts the banners over the cribs so the new babies don't get mixed up!
