Hi everyone! It's Annie, and today I'm sharing a quick tutorial to make this fun baby onesie shaker pin perfect for baby showers and moms-to-be. The brand new Mini Shaker Onesie from Clear Scraps is super versatile and can be used for gift tags, cards, and scrapbook pages as well!
I started by tracing the onesie shape onto some super pretty scrapbook paper and cutting it out with scissors. Then, I adhered the paper shape to the chip back shape with Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue, followed by two of the chipboard cutout shapes. White, iridescent, and pink flower-shaped sequins all were added to the shaker for a soft and feminine look.
I added the "It's a Girl" sentiment to the acrylic cutout with a foil rub-on (rub-ons work beautifully on acrylic!) before adhering it down on top with more Beacon 3-in-1 Craft Glue. After painting the last chipboard cutout shape with white acrylic paint, I then adhered this on top of the acrylic divider to finish the shaker element off.
You can use a traditional pin back to turn this into a pin, but I had a couple of magnetic pin backs from some old work conference name tags so decided to use that instead (bonus - no poking the mother-to-be when you give her the pin!). I trimmed maroon, baby pink, and white satin ribbon to form ten six-inch strips before adhering it with hot glue to the back of the shaker under the magnetic pin back for a nice finished look.
For one last feminine touch, I added a small pre-formed paper flower to the front of the onesie with hot glue. And if you don't want to use it as a pin, you could easily add a magnet or wooden dowel to the back instead to turn it into a fun gift or shaker wand!
