I’ve. Got. Baby. Fever. I just can’t help myself! I have a 7 year (going on 13) year old and a lil’ rascal of a 2 1/2 year old and I am MISSING that sweet cuddly infant age! Not to mention the fact that I am surrounded by friends and family member’s who just had their sweet little ones or are going to have them soon. So being the fact that I am NOT pregnant right now, nor will be in the near time future, I HAD to get my baby fix by making something nursery related to keep my sanity 😉 Soooo…off to the local Paper Store and low and behold, I found this absolutely PRECIOUS paper that I had to have! Picked up some letters and thought, “Wouldn’t this be so sweet as some sort of Nursery Decor?” And, welp, no more than 5 minutes later, I have this cute sign that I am gushing over! And oh so easy and just as cute as any Etsy order but only cost a few bucks! Let me give you a quick overview on how I made this and how you can too!
Okay, so I know there are a few extra pieces in my materials photo, but I always seem to start off with a thought and quickly ixnay it after I get to work. So here is your list folks:
– Craft paper (pattern of your choice)
– Sticker Letters (fairly decent in size/atleast 3″ tall)
– Some cute lil’ Adornment (I chose to stick with the Heart theme)
– A Frame to put your Artwork in
That’s it. You may even have all of this sitting around in that Craft room of yours!
First, choose a saying. I chose to keep it simple. “You are Loved”. So sweet. Start out in the top right-hand corner of your paper. Make sure you leave room for frame clearance. Try and keep your letters nice and straight as you are placing out the work. Draw in pencil a line if you have to…you definitely don’t want it to look sloppy and try and have to un-peel those stickers. Directly under the first word, start your second word and so on. When it’s all said and done, it should look somewhat like the next photo.
Cute, huh?! And just one more easy step and you are done! So fast isn’t it?!?!
Take your cute little accent piece and place it in the position to your liking. If it is something that you have to puncture through to place, mark the front of the piece so you know where the placement should be and carefully press through so that nothing rips. Fold down the flaps to secure it and double check it’s placement by flipping back around to the front and make sure it’s to your liking. You. Are. DONE!
Open up that frame and place your masterpiece in it! Now time to see how it looks!
So ADORABLE! Perfect addition to your Nursery or even makes a sweet gift for that next baby shower! Thanks for Crafting with me and I look forward to the next venture!
