Baby Onesie Gift Card Holder



It has been a long time since I've made a baby card. This month, two of my good friends were blessed with grandbabies. I wanted to send gift cards so made the onesie above to hold the card. I started with pink card stock, added scalloped trim out of swiss dot-embossed white card stock, personalized the bib, added a bow and made a pocket on the inside for the gift card. I found this adorable Winnie the Pooh quote that I also put on the inside.

Sometimes, it's the smallish things
that take up the most room in our heart.

Present Card


I just love making these little present cards. The card consists of a simple hexagon shape with three fold-down pieces. Just add the 'ribbon' (small strips of paper) and a small bow and you have a present card. When it is opened, it reveals the message inside. The finished size of the folded card is 3.5 inches.


Here are three I made for birthdays. The bows are stickers from Jolee...and they were the perfect size for the box! These cards are also great for gift tags (baby showers, graduations, Mother's Day, etc).

Foxy Valentine


I came across the cutest treat box for Valentine's Day and just had to make one. Isn't he just the cutest thing? It's a pattern from The Paper Source for a little fox...so simple to make. If you would like the instructions, click HERE.


There is another adaption of the Fox treat box (from Kimberley Morris) using a Top Note die cut for the head. She even includes box instructions. You can find Kimberley's instructions HERE. Have Fun.
