If you’ve got a baby shower to attend soon there’s a really nice gift you can make for the new mom. She’ll love hanging the picture you make that looks like a bib and features a photo of the baby as well as information about the child. Although it’s not an expensive gift it’s one that will be cherished forever.
You’ll need a picture of a bib or a clipart bib to begin the project. Resize the picture in your print program to be the size of the frame you’ll be using. Now you can do any number of things to make the bib you want. Be sure to leave a space on the bib, though, as a place to display the baby’s photo.
Write a poem or a cute saying about a baby. Or, just list the baby’s birth info. Write the baby’s entire name, the date of birth, the weight and length at birth and similar information. Other things you can list include the names of the parents and the new baby’s siblings. Write “Hair – Brown” or even “Hair – None”.
Use your program to change colors of the writing, to put small clipart pictures on the bib or to make other accents. When you’re finished writing everything you want to on the bib you can then print out the picture. Glue or otherwise affix the baby’s picture to the area you’ve allowed on the bib. You can attach a small, rectangular picture or cut a larger picture into a circle shape. Or, cut the picture to have the shape of a heart. Encircle the picture with very small-diameter cord or even use a scrapbook frame around it.
Use glitter paint to outline the bib. Use a small paintbrush to brush the paint on, all the way around the bib, to give it an elegant look. Depending upon the design of the bib you can now attach other things, if you want. Some choices include stickers, colored tape, paint markers or tiny, fake jewels.
When you’re completely finished with the bib design you can then place it in the chosen frame. To give the picture more of a baby theme you can glue on tiny pacifiers, small, novelty bottles and similar things to the frame itself. It’s makes for a beautiful and thoughtful gift and you can count on one thing: no one else will be giving the new mom the same gift as you!
