My cousin is having her first baby shower, and being the crafty one in the family, I wanted to do something special. I looked around at diaper cakes and diaper wreaths when I stumbled across a baby bouquet. After much searching I found how to make them, so here is my take at a baby bouquet.
I added 3 board books I found at Target. She loves frogs, hence the ribbon and box decoration
a wooden box
plastic/silk leaves and small flowers
baby clothes (I used all white, 8 socks, 5 onesie's, 3 kimono style shirts)
I painted frogs, her favorite animal
and here's how it looks on the box-
The back and inside I painted the same color as the frogs. Then I made my bouquet based off this tutorial: http://www.marthastewart.com/article/baby-bunch-bouquet
Here's a onesie, a sock, and a shirt
and here's 14 flowers grouped into 9 bunches.
I cut an old shoe box to fit inside the box and poked 9 holes to hold the flowers.
Here's how it looks with all the flowers:
To hide the stems, I placed tissue paper around the inside, two sheets, one fluffed up, and one fluffed down.
There you go, hope you enjoy!
