Tutorial for the baby onesie

Tutorial for the baby onesie handmade baby shower invitation  

onesie card tutorialThe first step is to cut a piece of cardstock in half long way.  The cardstock should measure 4 1/4″ x 11″.  Fold it in half.

onesie card tutorial step two
You want to use a 1 3/8″ circle punch (item #119860) to cut the neck out of the folded end of the cardstock.  Cut just a half circle.

onesie tutorialUse that same circle punch to punch out the leg holes (bottom corners of the card).

handmade card tutorialFor the arms, measure down from the fold approx. 1 1/4″ and cut straight into the card about an inch.  Be sure you are cutting through both the top and bottom of the card.  From there, cut diagonally down to the corner where you punched the leg hole.  For the second arm I like to take the piece cut away from the first side and trace it on the second side to make sure they are the same size.

onesie laceTo make the lace around the arm and leg holes you’ll need to once again use that circle punch.  Punch a circle out of the white cardstock making sure there is plenty of cardstock on all sides of the hole.

scallop laceForget about the circle you punched out, you need the cardstock that you punched the circle out of.  Turn your 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle punch (item #119854) upside down so you can position the circle in the middle of the scallop and punch.

lace on the onesie card
Position the lace around the neck and leg holes and adhere.  For the arms you can use the Scallop edge punch (item #119882) on some white cardstock and glue to the arms.  Stamp and decorate your card as you like.

I wish I could give credit to the person who originally came up with this idea but I’m afraid I don’t know who that was as there are many variations out there.
