Great Gift – Kid’s Name for Baby Shower or Birthday

I made this gift for my niece’s baby shower last week.  Her little girl is due in June and we can’t wait to meet her!  Baby’s name is perfect for a tabletop or wall decoration in her nursery.  She has a “Finding Dory” theme in the colors of coral and torqousie.  It’s pretty easy to make and fairly quidk too and it’s Oh So Cute!  So next time you need a gift for a baby shower or a child’s birthday you’re all set!

Name Gift Instructions

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • Wooden Letters to Spell Out the Child’s Name.  You can but these at your local craft supply store.
  • 6 Pieces of Pretty Scrapbook Paper in Coordinating Colors & Patterns.  Do not use cardstock or coated or glittered paper.  Paper must be able to soak up the glue! (You might want to find out how the their bedroom is decorated, if you don’t already know.  That way you can make sure the colors you choose will match).

7.  Apply a coat of decopauge glue over the top of the scrapbook paper and allow to dry slightly.

8.  If any bubbles appear under the scrapbook paper, carefully smooth them out using a smooth plastic surface (I used the bottom of the glue bottle).

9.  If a few bubbles still remain, that is alright.  They shoud smooth out as the glue dries completely.

Wrap up your gift and you’re ready to go to the party!  The guest of honor is sure to love their special personalized gift!
