I used Grant's old bibs as a template for these.
I give these burp cloths to almost the mom of almost every baby shower I attend. I get a little bored making the same things all the time but I just can't get away from them. Every mom needs them and I hate to see them using the ugly old school flat fold diapers, or the super thin burp cloths you can buy in the stores. So I break out the flannel and quilt batting and cut a few out knowing how useful they will be.
I added a couple bottles (using a buy one get one free coupon), baby spoons, and 2 boxes of baby cereal (I paid all of $0.08 for a few months back using coupons). So I kind of went with a feeding item theme. The total cost of the entire gift was under $6 and I'm pretty satisfied. I know the new mom and dad will get plenty of use out of everything, and that's always my goal when baby shower gift shopping.
At the last minute I realized I didn't have a card, which happens to me a lot. I tend to forget to include one and have the guest of honor who the gift is from, to which I have to shout over every one "that ones from me". So I got out my Cricut and my Boys Will Be Boys Cricut Lite cartridge and made this:
I love the simplicity of it which is just what I look for in cards these days. It took me all of 5 minutes to make this which made me really want to whip up a few extras for future showers, as it seems someone is always pregnant around here. Maybe another day when I have nothing to do, cuz you know I have soooo much extra time on my hands these days...lol
