Easy and Quick -Baby Shower Favors

A couple of days ago, I made some Baby Shower favors for a dear friend of mine having a baby. We organized with little time, and if you add up my job and my daily mother and household duties... well, you do the math. Since I didn't buy them, and had no chance of doing anything too elaborate, I decided to use what I had at home. The result was simply sweet.

Making these cuties is really simple:

Baby Shower Favors

You need:

Craft foam
Precision cutter
Glue gun
Beads, decor shapes, etc.
(for this project, I used flower shapes from the headband project)

 (smaller favor)

Cut the foam with the cutter, making a trapezoid shape.

Fold the flat corner up.

Use your glue gun to glue corner.

Now glue the other two ends together in the center.

Make a little bow and glue it as a little decoration.

Don't forget to glue the pin.

¡This is how they turn out!
(Sorry for the little glue "threads" but I was in a little hurry ;)

Larger favor:

Start with a rectangle shape to make the mom-to-be's favor.
Fold two corners, just as if you were folding a fabric diaper.

From this step on, it's very similar to the smaller favor process.
Use your glue gun to keep the corners in place.

This is how the diaper looks like. Now it's time to embelish!

I used two baby-pins to make it look like a real fabric diaper.

Glue your beads, decor shapes and so on... it's ready to go!

As you can see, these little favors were made with materials I already had at home, and in less than an hour. They are REALLY simple to do. If you have more materials and/or time, you can get great things to decorate them... the outcome will be gorgeous!
