I went to another baby shower recently, yes…another shower. But this time, it was for a baby girl. I was excited about all the pink I was about to encounter 🙂
For her gift I made individual onesie cupcakes and a washcloth lollipop bouquet.
Onesie’s were rolled into a swirl, then wrapped with rubber band to keep them from unraveling. I then put each onesie into a white cupcake liner followed by a pink outer liner. I placed them inside cellophane and tied the top with a rubber band. To hide the band, I tied a pretty ribbon on top. and then hot glued a red glitter paper flower as a ‘cherry’ and then hot glued a tiny pink button to the center of the flower. Viola!
The lollipops were a little more time-consuming but the outcome was sure worth it. Two of the big lollipops contain two washclothes..so there is more of a swirl effect, the smaller ones had just one piece in them. Basically, I rolled them up, stuck them in cellophane, tied the bottom with rubber band so the washclothes wouldn’t unravel and then stuck a skewer into the rubber band. No gluing required! I would have used white lollipop sticks but I didn’t have any on hand and the skewers worked perfectly fine. ( I cut the skewers to the size I wanted)
I took a decorated take out box and stuffed it with crinkled paper and the lollipops. I had to adjust it a bit to make sure the weight was distributed everywhere. That was it!
