Another Baby Gift!

 We've been having a lot of baby showers at work lately, and I have been trying to make a unique handmade gift for each of the new moms to be.  Well, I have to say, that right now in my life, time is really at a premium. (you may have noticed no posts from me this week...) I have hit that time at school when the rush to the end begins, and all  the testing is coming.  So, I fit in the crafting as I can - like this cute gift I made Monday night.

I saw the idea online one time and had wanted to try it out.  It really is simple.  You just take a tape measure and run it down the pages, so it hangs on the wall and is a growth measurer.

Pages can be used for photos or keeping notes as baby grows, or both.  I decided to reinforce the tape with big eyelets.  The pages are just cardboard that I covered front and back.

Since I did not remember if this was for a boy or girl, I went with the primary color scheme and these darling zoo animals.  Paper, embellishments and stamps are all from Close to My Heart.
 It was a lot of fun, and a cute, and fairly easy project.  I even used leftover paper to make a bow to embellish the package.  The new mom and dad to be loved it!


  1. What a cute idea for a new baby gift! I love it and it turned out so darn cute!

  2. This is a great idea and yours turned out adorable. My friend just had twin boys and this will be easier to duplicate twice than an album.

  3. It's fairly quick and easy to make too!


It was so nice of you to visit and leave a comment, thanks!!
