Zoey's Bake Shoppe

Some friends of ours are expecting their first child in less than 2 months, and it's a girl! Yet another girl in our circle of friends for our boys to choose from! ;) So, I got to have fun shopping on the girl's side of our Carter's store once again.  Each time I do that, I am so thankful that God gave me twin boys...we'd be broke for sure if I was buying clothes for twin girls!  I have such a hard time narrowing my options down (polka dots, paisleys, hearts, butterflies...)  For this gift, I had an idea that helped me narrow it down.  I needed lots of onesies in various colors.  So, I settled on 3 packs in different sizes (12 onesies total) and 2 pair of pants with ruffles across the bum!

After some trial and error, I managed to get them all rolled up like little cupcakes and put in a plain bakery box like this...

I added some accordion folded paper around 5 of them (I decided the ones with the ruffles didn't need the paper.)  Oh, an don't ask what flavor the gray "frosting" would be, because I never did come up with something that sounded appetizing.  But the rest of them look delicious!

Since this baby's name is no secret, I had fun personalizing the top of the box using my very neglected Cricut.

I also made a quick card that matched the theme of the gift.

We are looking forward to meeting Little Miss Zoey soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a sweet gift and card. You've taken onesies to a new level! Great job.
