I did a simple, cute little project the other day that I thought would be fun to share. I have this stash of gifts in my basement for birthdays, baby showers, etc. I was digging in the pile one day and discovered a package of wrist rattles. I had an idea to turn them into a baby card.

Of course I needed a saying for the card, and the song “Shake, Rattle and Roll” popped into my head. Cheesy works, right! I added a little color, some fun fonts (I’m currently addicted to the font Lilly Belle. I could go nuts with this sweet font. If you don’t have it, download it here.), and two holes to wrap the band through. And, TADA!

I love this card because it has a nice 3D focal point, it looks great on a simple gift bag or wrapping, and it’s a little gift, too.

My designer takeaway: Add a little dimension to your work. It may not fit in an envelope, but it might be too fun to be hidden, anyway!
