Baby Shower Favors and Thank You Cards

Happy Thursday!!  About a year or so ago, I had an order for some baby shower favors and thank you cards.  I was given free reign to design whatever I thought would be cute - I just had to use the nursery theme - pink and leopard print.  The other challenge for me was that these all had to be shipped to Dallas, so I tried to be conscious of shipping charges, and also didn't want to make anything candy or food related for fear that it would melt or get damaged.

So, I came up with the idea to incorporate the "shower" theme by creating these faux cupcakes out of shower puffs!  I tried to find a template for the cupcake wrappers, but in the end, just ended up making my own.  I handmade each of these wrappers - I think there were about 25 total.  It took a long time, but they came out so perfect - AND were a huge hit at the shower!

 For the thank you cards, I used my cricut to cut a die of the mommy to be.  I lined the back with the leopard print paper, and layered it to pop it off the card.  Each card was hand stamped using a stamp from Stampin' Up (I think it may have come from a free hostess set that I got).

I packaged the cupcakes in cello bags, tied with ribbon, and a tag that read, "From Heidi's Shower to Yours".

Cute little set, right?  

Till tomorrow - tune in for my Friday I'm In Love favorites!  Also - don't forget about my Saturday Social Linky tomorrow night!  Please - tell your crafty friends about it!
