Hi! Today's post is about these awesome onesie stickers I made for my sister and her baby boy. I must admit, this project would've turned out better with my new Silhouette machine. But you can use the principles I've shown in this blog to make your own. I will not be sharing a link to download the superhero photos and the corresponding months. You can find these character online yourself and make your own. It's so easy.
-Canva (or designing software, I guess Microsoft Word will work too)
-Card stock paper (I used 2 sheets)
-Scrapbook paper (I used 4 sheets)
-Scissors of cutting machine
-Glue or double sided tape
First, I created the design for each sticker on Canva. It's pretty basic (but I like basic). Circles with text and a picture inside them. I only found 6 superhero characters I really liked. I wanted them to look child-like since this is for a baby. So I simply created the first 6, then I copied them and changed the numbers. Since this post is about how to create these stickers, I won't explain how to use Canva. Let me know if you'd like a tutorial on how to use Canva though. It's pretty easy (which is why I LOVE it).
Each of these circles are about 3" x 3". Then I printed it out on my card stock paper and cut it out.
At this point, your sticker isn't going to look that interesting. That's where the scrapbook paper comes in! Choose a design of your choice. My Mom bought this for me when I was creating my son's decorations for his nursery (Note, you should totally check it out! It's so cute). I haven't found a use for it until now. Thankfully I have it for this project. I haven't seen that many superhero theme ones.
Each of these circles are 4" x 4". Luckily for me, I have a tape roll that is 4" in diameter. Score!!
Create your outlines and select which character you want on the paper. Or just use your machine...creates a neater, more professional look.
In the photo below, you can see that I made sure none of the same characters were on the same design (the ones on the far left are being taped onto the circles cut out below). I wanted to make sure they each looked different. Also, I chose designs that weren't too bold; no text that would make you look away from the month and the character part.
After you've cut out both parts, simply tape/glue them together. Ta-da! Your own superhero onesie stickers. Ok, I guess they aren't stickers. You can add tape onto the back if you want that feature. Your baby will only wear these for a few minutes while you take pictures anyways.
These are super easy and way cute! And you only paid for the scrap booking paper. If you use scrapbook paper you already have, you didn't want to pay a cent for these! You're welcome!

If you've never heard of Christmas Crackers before, you are missing out on a amazing tradition. It originated in England, which I lived for a few years. In our family, we take out these bad boys on Christmas Eve and rip them open with a sibling. In store bought ones, there are poppers inside the cracker so that when they rip apart, they make a fun pop sound (I did not opt to do that for mine).
Inside the cracker you get goodies, a paper crown, a toy (the type depends on which cracker you buy), and a super cheesy joke. Ever since we moved to England in 2015, we've done the tradition every Christmas Eve. There was even one year when we were on a cruise during the Christmas and New Year holidays and we're sitting in this fancy restaurant, all dressed up, opening up our Christmas Crackers. All around us are older folks who kept staring at us as we were laughing at the cheesy jokes we shared with one another and wearing our colorful paper crowns. Good times.
So, onto making these amazing crowns. I cannot take credit for this project. This is something I've found and wanted to share with you. I was inspired to do this project by Today We Craft. Click on the name and it'll take you directly to the site where you can read another tutorial for this craft AND download the printable template. As you see below.
The downloaded template (see link above)
8x11 scrapbook paper (1 for each cracker you make)
Scissors (or cutting machine)
Tape or Glue
I bought several sheets of 8x11 scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby (no affiliate links here, just sharing). Then printed out the template onto the blank side of the paper, for obvious reasons. On the template, it tells you to print on A4 paper, but 8x11 is also fine, you just end up with a shorter cracker than what is standard. It won't affect the width.
You can easily cut this by hand, or you can cut with your Cricuit or Sillouette machine (I just got one for Christmas, I'm so excited to use it!!). On the template it tells you where to cut and where to fold. If you are doing this by hand, fold first and then cut. It'll save you the headache.
Once you've finished cutting, you are ready to tape this sucker together! If you are using tape, use double-sided tape. Put the glue/tape on first. Then roll it up, and line up the paper. I usually stuck the middle piece together first, but if you're having a hard time lining it up, start with an edge. But either way you do it is fine, as long as it's lined up and sticking together.
You're cracker is almost done! Now is the fun part! Tie up one end with ribbon first, then place whatever goodies you can fit into your cracker (I just stuck with candy, maybe I'll put in a cheesy joke next year). Then tie up the other end.
Your cracker is done! Yay! A simple, fun gift you can make for your friends and family. Keep in mind that the ends won't completely shut because of the nature of the paper, so don't put anything tiny inside. Standard "fun" sized candy is OK.
On the other site, they say that you can add additional decorations to your crackers, but I like to keep things simple and let the design on the paper do the talking.

Sorry I've been MIA. It's been SUCH a busy month! I've been adjusting to the duties of Motherhood, making sure I get enough sleep, and I applied for and was accepted as a teacher for VIPkids!!
I am soooooo excited to be a part of this company. I can still earn an income and be a SAHM. I am so lucky! I love being home with my son. And maybe one day I'll earn an income from blogging too. Baby steps...baby steps.
This project is easy to make. I found the idea on Pinterest, but I couldn't find a printable. All of the labels were handwritten. I have a confession to make, I don't have great handwriting. So I decided to design my own label.
When I created the printable, I printed it out, cut it out, and taped it onto the jar. See? Simple.
It was a labor of love, as I gave this jar to my husband when it was finished. Below is the image of the printable. Just click on the title below the image to download.
