I've been to two baby showers in the last week. (Yeah, our baby is going to have LOTS of friends his age to play with.)
One for a baby that's expected before Christmas in about a week, so he got a Baby's First Christmas Book.
And one that's for a baby expected in mid-January...so his mom got a "What to Expect While You're Expecting" Ornament.
I thought it would be fun to include a personalized book ornament with each one along with my traditional shower gift. I used it as the gift tag. I put my name inside on a piece of cardstock taped in...because they really don't need my name on their tree...and put the year and name of the new mom. You can put the baby's name inside the baby ornament if you know what it's going to be.
And of course if you're a regular reader, you know that my gift was handmade burp cloths. (Burp Cloth Tutorial here) This time I tried folding them in thirds hamburger style and rolling them all up in a bundle. And each package got it's own Scrappy Bow from bits left over from making the burp cloths.
I think Baby's First Christmas Ornaments would be a fun addition to the gift for any time of year. In case you missed it, you can find the tutorial for making these easy book ornaments here. And you can click over to the tutorial to enter my giveaway for a few book ornaments. It's open until Wednesday, Dec. 14th.
