Baby Clothes Cupcakes for Baby Shower Gifts

Dear Marc:
My sister-in-law is having a baby shower, and she’s the type that loves a gift with a personal touch! I sewed her a little one piece, and I’m wondering if you have any ideas how I can wrap it to make it look pretty?

Dear Anna:
When it rains, it pours. Baby showers, wedding showers, bridal showers and everything in between seem to happen at this time of year!

With all these gatherings, it’s fun to find creative ways to make our gifts stick out from the rest of the bunch. I find that the gift’s presentation is almost just as important as the gift itself. Although, they say “Never judge a book by its cover”, but the truth of the matter is that we almost always do. First impressions are important, which brings us to this week’s project. We’re going to learn a chic way to create a decorative cupcake out of baby clothes.

Supplies:
– One piece of clothing
– Safety pin
– Small coffee filter

Step 1:
Fold the arms of the baby suit inwards to form a rectangle. Then fold the clothing horizontally onto itself.
