One last baby shower gift!
After this I REALLY need to start working on projects for my own baby.
Especially considering he will be here in a mere 3 weeks!!
To make the above banner, I used Maya Road chipboard t-shirts.
My friend is using the cutest Zoom! Zoom! collection for her baby's room.
I love the retro racecars!
I downloaded some photos from the internet with the racecars on them, isolated the cars, resized them to fit my chipboard t-shirts, and cut them out with my X-acto knife.
I used Mod Podge and scrapbook paper in coordinating colors to cover the t-shirts.
Then I attached the 4 racecars to 4 of the t-shirts.
To *up* the cuteness factor I wanted to add a diaper to each of the t-shirts.
I trimmed a #1 diaper so that only an inch and a half or so would be glued to the back of the t-shirts. I glued down each layer of the diaper so it would not be flapping around.
(I used Beacon's 3-in-1)
I added some stripes to the t-shirts using leftover scraps of paper from all of the t-shirts.
I think it makes it more "boy".
I used my Crop-a-dile to punch holes in each of the shirt sleeves and used coordinating colors of ribbon to tie the t-shirts together.
(If you're unfamiliar with the Crop-a-dile, it cuts through chipboard, cardboard, acrylic, fabric, etc. like butter! Definitely worth the investment!)
I added some matching buttons to the t-shirts just to give them a little more oomph.
The t-shirt to the right is in the center of the banner. The paper I used for this shirt is leftover from my Keep Calm print I made for my friend in a previous post. Since there are only 4 racecars in the Zoom! Zoom! collection, I used the foam letters to put the baby's initials on this shirt.
And now its hanging over the changing table!
I think it turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!
