DIY Baby Onesie Banner & Giveaway

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! I'm SO excited to be sharing this today! My best friend is having a little one soon, and it's her first one, and I'm SO excited for her. I'm helping plan the decorations and I decided to give this lovely idea from Mandy over at This Little Life of Mine a try. We were e-mailing each other back and forth for a while before I jumped on the project this weekend. Mandy made a banner with triangles and my friend wanted hers with little onesies. So that's what I was going to do!
This is what we're going to make!

What you're going to need:
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ribbon
  • Hot Glue for ribbon
  • Elmers glue for lettering

  • I drew the one side of the onesie by free hand and simply folded it in half and cut so it would be equal on both sides. I looked at a template through Google images and copied it on there. I cut the onesie out of thicker scrapbook paper so I could use it as a template for the scrapbook paper I wanted to use for the project. I also wanted to do lettering in little bubbles so I practiced drawing circles for a while before I got it right. haha

    I put the scrapbook paper in the order I wanted it to be for the template. I bought all these scrapbook papers from Michaels. (in case you like any)

    Simply traced the onesie on the paper and cut them out.

    Made up my own letters. I wish I had premade ones, but this turned out ok. I think this took me the longest because I drew them 2 times.

    I got this glue from Wal-Mart. I just glued the circles and letters onto the onesies.

    I hot glued the ribbon onto the tops of the banners so that when she hangs it, the onesies wouldn't fall off. I think she could also use it for her nursery.

     photo DSC01623_zps6287a336.jpg It cost me less than $6.00 to make the banner, and it is personalized, so I think this is much cheaper then buying one!
    I also wanted to remind everyone there's only 3 more days left for my giveaway. Enter HERE
    Have a great day everyone!
