How to make sweet little baby cards

July 13, 2011


1.  Cut 10 x 10 cm square and iron;   
2.  Begin kite fold (iron as you go); 
3.  Fold both ends in to centre;

4.  Fasten mini safety pin through all layers and you will end up with an incy wincy little nappy that looks like this!

Nappy is approx. 5.5 x 3.5 cm

5.  Using craft glue, adhere nappy to piece of nice card ( I used 10 x 20 cm piece to produce 10 x 10 cm square card) and finish off with writing.



Cute hey?! Each card took about five minutes and costs next to nothing to make.  I made one for our friends who just had a baby boy Charlie.  I also made him this...


A little softie made from a sock and some scraps!  I put a little bell inside too so that it jingles when it's shaken.

I'm sharing today at Kootoyoo.
