I love creating things that are cute, simple, and yet fun to make. Last Friday, I had my very first class via Want2Scrap's ustream channel and we created a cute onesie card using Want2Scrap new charms. I like to think outside the box and when I see something I think of unique ways to use it, and that is exactly what I did with Want2Scrap new charms.
When you think of charms you immediately think about using them in either a necklace or bracelet, but what we did this past Friday was to create a cute onesie card that is perfect for any expecting mother or birth announcement. There are so many things you can create with charms and to be honest the sky is the limit. You just need to think outside the box, and Want2Scrap makes it very easy for you to do just that!
So, exactly how do you create a onesie card? Honestly it's very simple and with a few simple steps you will be on your way to creating cute onesie cards that will WOW everyone.
Here is what we created together Friday night:
How do you create this cute onesie card, well here is what you need to get started:
Materials Used to Create a Baby Onesie using Want2Scrap Charms:
- Want2Scrap Charms - Boy and Love you Charms
- Want2Scrap Maxxi Girl Swirl Rhinestone White Pearls
- Buttons Galore & More Baby Boy Buttons
- Grosgain Ribbon
- Authenique Loyal Paper Collection
- Hot Glue
- Round circle punch (I used a mason jar)
The first thing you need to do is to gather all your supplies and then think baby!
Here are the steps:
Step One cut cardstock 5 x 11" and score at 5 1/2".
Step Two: Cut 4 pieces of your designer paper at 5 x 5/12" and adhere to card.
Step Three: Once the four pieces of designer paper has been adhered, cut your semi circles like shown below. I used a mason jar and drew my semi circles. Make sure your Designer paper is already adhered to your cardstock before you begin drawing and cutting.
Step Four: Cut out your semi circles, be sure to use either an xacto knife or a good pair of paper cutting scissors. Once you do that measure on both sides 1 1/2" from top and make a small mark and then from the marks measure in and draw a line on both sides 1 1/2" like you see in the photo. Then make a line that almost looks like the number 7 (line is end to end) . Cut those out and you can now see how the Onesie had taken form.
Now, you can start dressing up your onesie card. What I did was to glue the trim around the legs, necklines, and sleeves with trim. I used hot glue and you will have to work pretty fast on this part. Then I used the semi circle that was cut out from the neck as the flap for my pocket on the onesie. Great way of recycling and working with what we already have. I used Buttons Galore & More Baby Boy button and attached Want2Scrap boy charm to the backing of the stork button. I applied my pocket, flowers, and ribbon, before I adhered the Maxxi Girl Pearls. I find it alot easier to apply my bling once everything is in place
So, there you have it. A cute and simple Baby Onesie using Want2Scrap Charms and Bling! Now what baby wouldn't want to rock this onesie out!
