I love Fridays because I get to think outside of the scrapbooking zone and inside of the project zone. This week I created a baby shower kit using the Lost and Found Collections by My Mind's Eye and one lucky winner will get it for her very own! I decided to go with Portobello Road and create a baby shower kit for a baby boy.
I love the vintage feel of the Lost and Found collections. I adore the softness of it all and couldn't wait to get started.
I first made a list of the items that I wanted to create for a basic baby shower kit. Then I put my Silhouette to use for a good share of these projects to make things come together quickly.
The first and foremost important aspect of a baby shower is the invite. Without the invite there wouldn't be a party!
Next comes decorations. I've never made a banner decoration before but thought how fun it would be not only for decoration for the baby shower but for the new mommy to hang in baby's room as decoration.
Another fun decoration idea is confetti. I made the most of my scraps and saved the stars from the banners to use as confetti.
I thought a fun and simple activity for the shower would be an advice album for the new mom, where guests can jot down their most useful hints on conquering the grand step into motherhood.
Now who doesn't love a cupcake? I made some coordinating cupcake wrappers to fancy up the treats.
Of course a perfect shower wouldn't be complete without little favor boxes for the guests. I made these fun cone shaped boxes which kept with the feel of the pennants. These simple boxes could be filled with blue and white jelly beans.
Don't you agree that the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found collections are perfect for this purpose?
