As multi-talented as I think I am… there are some things I’m just no good at. For instance, those diaper creations. I’m just not qualified enough for that. I leave that to the experts that are.
A friend of ours is having a baby, and I wanted to give her something handmade. So I decided to make some custom onesies.
I have a stash of onesies sitting around here (remember I hoard). I grabbed a few and searched on Design Space for some designs. These are easy and fun to make. All you need is:
- Htv (I used my Scrap htv)
And that’s it for the onesies.
Now the box is a different story.
I saw a gift box in a fb group I’m a member of Silhouette Cameo Fun Project Inspiration Once you join you will have access to the group. If you search for “gift box”, you’ll be able to see all of the cute boxes that members have designed. The actual file for the box is in the file section.
How To Make The Box Personalized
I used Silhouette Studio for this. There’s a wonderful YouTube tutorial that takes you step by step on how to make it personalized by one of the groups admins, Gift Box Tutorial
In this case, I wanted the box to say “Congratulations”. After designing it in studio, I needed to convert it to an SVG to cut on my Cricut. I used an online converter and saved again. Then I prepped to cut on my cricut.
For this I used:
- Heavy Weight Cardstock (for the bottom)
- Medium Cardstock (for the cover)
- Foil Vinyl (for Congratulations)
- Cardstock Glue (I use Elmer’s Craft Glue Stick)
I have a stack of decorative Paper Pads. I chose this one because of the foiled look. Once everything was cut, I added the “Congratulations” to the cover, and folded & glued where necessary.
When everything was dried, I added in the onesies.
Note: You can add acetate to the cover. The finished box is about 9×9 (unfinished 12×12).
And that’s it! Hopefully that didn’t sound too complicated. The video really does an excellent job of explaining how to create this look. Theres so many different things you can create with this: names, sayings, etc.
Please let me know if you decide to make this.
