Of course we wanted to get crafty with our announcement to our family that we were going to adopt. Since Eddie's mom is close by (I hear built in baby sitter) we decided to whip up a faux box of candy for her. We were announcing on Valentine's night.
When we gave Shelley her box of faux chocolates she was so excited. It was truly a memorable night that we will never forget.
To make the onesie, we designed an image on the computer, reversed the image and printed it on inkjet iron-on transfer paper. Next, we cut around the image, placed it in the center of a baby onesie and attached it with an iron. Make sure you follow the package instructions.
this tutorial for step by steps.
We tucked the onesie into the candy box.
Oh La La...my favorite ribbon....vintage seam binding.
Last we added a bow.
