Hello, hello! This is a very exciting week for me: my baby shower is this Saturday!!! I love any reason to get together and celebrate, but I'm especially thrilled to celebrate the upcoming arrival of our baby boy.
Since Baby K's nursery is dinosaur-themed, it seemed natural to coordinate the baby shower to the same theme and colors. And since I'm a graphic designer by day, it was pretty easy for me to make sure that everything coordinated.
For raffle prizes, we'll be giving away gift cards to Target, Starbucks and Amazon. While I didn't feel the need to make a big to-do about the packaging, I wanted to make sure they were cute and coordinated with our theme.
To create this holder, I cut the Scallop Stitched Envelope out of my base color and used super sticky tape to adhere it together. You might notice that the flaps on my envelopes don't have a scallop. To get more bang for my buck, I first cut my 8.5" x 11" cardstock in half to get two envelopes out of one full sheet. The die itself is a little bit wider than a half sheet, so I simply let the scallop part hang off when I ran it through my die cutting machine.
I attached the gift cards to the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die with glue dots (after printing my cute little row of dinos on the white cardstock). The journal die slips right inside the envelope - perfect fit!
A dino medallion was attached to the simple belly band and we were good to go!
To give our winners a choice of gift cards, I coordinated the color of the envelope with the company:
Red = Target, Green = Starbucks, and Blue = Amazon
I'm hoping to check back in with photos from the shower soon! Thanks for stopping by today. Check out Emma's blog for more projects you can make in minutes.
I hope you were inspired!
