Baby Shower Shaker Pin

Baby Onesie Shaker Pin by Annie Williams for Clear Scraps - Main

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!

I hope you enjoyed this fun baby shower pin idea and thanks so much for stopping by today.  With so many new shaker shapes in the Clear Scraps shop, what will you be creating with them first?
