New Mom Gift with Printable Label

My Sweet Niece just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl that she named Selah Grace.  Our family is huge and this is our first baby in a while on my husbands side of the family so she  had a lot of company.
 Everyone is bringing food, books for the baby, and lots of unique gifts for mom and the baby.  When I heard their freezer was packed I decided to go in a different direction.  I made Krista a survival kit with things I knew she would like.  Here is a photo:
  Here is a list of the items  used

  • The base is a galvanized serving tray with open handles.   It was purchased from Wal Mart...I love it!!!  Just add items you know the new mom loves. You have to shuffle them around until you get the look you want.  
  •  Soft spa socks
  •  Small Yankee candle, lemon cupcake scent ( Krista loves cupcakes)
  •  Pioneer woman kitchen towels
  • Favorite body wash ( She was about to send her husband to get more because she was out)
  • Bugles, because everyone loves bugles.  
  • Lemon Oreo Thins ( If you haven't tried the lemon, there are no words)
  • Nail polish  that matched her spa socks, just for fun
  • Candy I chose her favorite Reese Peanut Butter minis, a box of peanut M&M's. 
  •  Beautiful Necklace and Matching Earrings
I made a circle label with the words Krista's Survival Kit and put a crying baby in the center.  

I'm sharing the label with you but changed the name to  new mom's label so you can use for any gift basket you make.
Free Printable Label


  1. Click on label
  2. Print on card stock, white is best  
  3. Carefully cut the circle out.  
  4. Center and glue to the basket. 
 Another option is to use a  hole punch and tie on baskets with a ribbon.  Please share pictures of baskets you have made.  If you use this label, show me how you used it.  I love to see how people are using my free printables.    Enjoy!

Fill Party Balloons with Candy and Gifts The Easy Way

Photo: Gunny Sack
    Fill Balloons With Candy and Toys using the following technique.  I have always liked the idea of filling balloons with candy and letting the kids pop them but I didn't like the idea of filling each balloon.  We know how the friction can slow things down.  If you make  a water bottle funnel (use a bottle with a wide mouth) you can easily push candy into balloons. 
 Use orange and black for Halloween parties, Red or Green for Christmas Parties, pink for a girls birthday party, blue for a boys birthday Parties , and pastels for Easter parties. How about filling with small baby shower gifts and letting mom to be pop the balloon. 
 For Gender Reveal baby showers, fill with pink or blue confetti and let someone special pop the balloon.There are so many ways this idea can be used. Use larger balloons for larger items.  And don't forget money slides in easily too.  Teens love money.

Using Diaper Bag as Gift Basket

I love putting together baby shower gifts. I did this diaper bag for a shower I attended today. After playing around with several ideas, I came up with this one.
The bear was pretty big, I put it in a gift bag but it just didn't look right...I finally decided to dress the bear with the onsie I had bought for the shower....I then took off the rattle that was on the bag and put it in the bears hand. Next the socks went into her lap. I put it in a cello bag and put " It's a girl" emblem in the center instead of a bow.  Wrap in clear wrap and you have the perfect baby shower gift for mom to be

How to Make Baby Bath Pops


These bath pops are so cute for baby shower gifts, to tuck in diaper cakes, and to add a little something extra to a gift.
To make them:

  • Buy  a cute baby wash cloth and matching ribbon.
    Roll the cloth with a bath fizzer in the center. You can use scotch tape to keep the roll in place. 
  •  Put the rolled cloth on a craft stick with double sided tape. You can now buy craft sticks that are already painted will ordinate with the theme of the baby bath pop.
  •  Cover with a clear cellophane(you can use basket cello), add knock out ribbon and you have a unique baby shower gift.

Baby Bank Made From Toostie Roll Container

This cute little bunny bank is inexpensive to make is a perfect for a one of a kind gift for baby showers. Buy a Toostie Roll bank.  Most dollar stores carry them  

  • Measure the bank's width and length and make a template that size. Use publisher, psp, printmaster, photoshop. or a free online graphics program.
  •  add a background, graphics, or the baby's name, or come up with a clever name for the bank. Since I put a bunny on mine, I named it bunny bank.
  •  When you decide on the graphics and make your bank cover, you can then cut the template out. Just glue one end and place it on the bank.
This is a fun project , but the best part is when they open it, it has a baby onesie inside.
You can roll a onesie, bib, or t-shirt and put inside the bank. Cute surprise for the mom to be.

Girls Baby Shower Gift Can

This is a paint can for a baby girl and makes a great baby shower gift. I took this picture so you can see the products inside. There are alot of items that can be added to a baby paint can. Some I have in this one are

  •  small bottle  of baby oil
  •  baby lotion
  •  baby powder

Laminating your can wrapper before putting it on your can really gives it a professional look. Just laminate on one side by putting the the back and front label together(print side out) and running through a laminating machine. You can then separate them and glue onto the can.

How to Make a Diaper Cake

Diaper cakes are popular and everyone loves receiving them.  This diaper cake is for a baby girl. It is 3 layers of rolled diapers with small gifts tucked all around the cake. The cake is made from rolled disposable diapers that are held in place with rubber bands.
  •  When you get the bottom layer of diapers rolled, use a huge rubber band to hold them all together.
  •  Hide this rubber band with a wide ribbon.
  •  Next make a smaller stack to place on the bottom layer
  • Make an even  smaller stack for the top.
  • Place on a large cake plate or  covered cardboard
