A Pinspired Baby Gift

A Pinspired Baby Gift

Oh, how I wish I could take credit for this one. I was searching for a gift for a college friend who just had a baby and stumbled upon this little gem on –where else– Pinterest. I’m so sad that the link didn’t lead to anything, because I really wanted to thank the brilliant blogger who thought this up! {Update! I found the source here!} Here is the original pin:

I mostly stuck to the tutorial, but I did a few little things differently. I couldn’t find the pretty lace cupcake wraps, so I just used a standard cupcake liner inside of a jumbo cupcake liner. I also opted to use rubber-bands to secure the onesies instead of tape.

I was worried about finding the cupcake boxes, but my Wal-mart carried these plain white ones in the cake decorating section. I’m guessing that most craft stores would carry them and may even carry the decorative style as well.

I will definitely be keeping this idea in my back pocket for future baby showers. It was so simple and just too cute!

Have you done any Pinterest-inspired projects lately?

    Hi Abby,
    Thanks for taking the time to find the correct link to my DIY. I can’t tell you how many of these cute baby gifts I have made to date, but I as well finessed the DIY slightly. Instead of using tape or rubberbands, I actually folded over the end of the baby sock around the onesie cupcake roll, and that was enough to secure the roll. Thanks again for sharing.
