 So, I'm doing all the decor for my SIL's baby shower.  I still have to finish the small diaper cakes for the little tables. I have to finish the favors too, but I completed a "model" so I could send her a pic as she was anxious to see...   Cheesy

  The wreaths I saw online were too busy for my minimalist butt, so I did a lighter version...   Wink

   I bought a CD with baby vintage images to make the magnets and selected 10 ( well, technically 11, but I forgot to put one in the pic) of those images for the favors. I'm thinking of adding a little pacifier to the ribbon, but I don't think I have time..  Undecided  I already have blisters on my fingers. I'm making 50 tins w/ 5 magnets each. = 250 magnets.  Shocked

(I apologize in advance for the crappy pics and extremely dirty door  Tongue )

Favors. Metal tin with magnets


Open tin


The 10 images




Here is the diaper wreath for the door


The detail of the star



I'll post the cakes when I finish them...


Thanks for looking! : Grin

  I used E6000 to glue everything on the magnets. Ad, yes, you have to cut it by hand, as I cut all 250 ones I made for this.. Cry Cheesy

Thanks for the nice words... <3 <3
