Monthly Baby Photo Onesie Badges

I'm up on the Whisker Graphics blog today with my project this month - onesie badges for monthly baby photos.

Before Evie came, a co-worker gave me a set of monthly onesie stickers from Etsy for taking monthly photos (see Evie's monthly photos). I did a bit of searching on Etsy for baby boy monthly onesie stickers after Parker came, but ultimately decided that I could make my own.

I ended up making my own with my Silhouette and Whisker Graphics Middy Bitty Bags and solid Divine Twine:

1-3. Using the Silhouette, cut 4" circles, numbers 1 through 12, and elephants.
4-6. Trim Middy Bitty Bags tall enough to cover 4" circle. Deconstruct at the seams.

7-8. Adhere circles to backside of Middy Bitty Bags and trim the excess down around the circles.
9-10. Cover numbers with adhesive (I used Scrappy Tape). Cover each number with rows of solid Divine Twine and trim the excess from the edges.
11. Line the elephants' ears with solid Divine Twine. I cut down Scrappy Tape to fit the ears, laid Divine Twine over the Scrappy Tape, and adhered the pieces behind the ears. Adhere elephants to smaller punched circles.
12. Adhere the twine-covered numbers and the elephants to covered 4" circles.

  1. Awesome tutorial! I love how you covered the numbers with twine. You have so much patient. :) But, I will keep in mind about these little badges for my future ones. I love coming here and I'm so sorry that I haven't comment lately, but I have been checking in when you do have new posts. Hope you know that you're not forgotten! Have a wonderful weekend, Shirley!!
