Rub-a-Dub Baby Shower Gift

After getting all my washcloth/bib/sock cupcakes in a row, it was time to assemble the final gift. And because we decided to throw a BBQ at our house the day before, I was scrambling the morning of the Shower to get this puppy sheep together!

I took a piece of cardboard (from the box of the umbrella we bought the day before for our deck BBQ party) and covered it with tissue paper and made a border with the ribbon I used on the sock cupcakes. I love my hot glue gun!

I used a small cardboard piece , oh my I must be tired, piece of cardboard and folded it into a box for a pedestal to put the sheep on so the sheep’s head and arms were just over the bath supply basket. Pinning the hooded towel to the sheep’s ears, I draped the rest over the pedestal and around the bottom of the basket. Then I placed the cupcakes around and figured out how I wanted them before hot glue gunning the paper liners down. The ones without liners I just made sure were between the liner ones to secure them from moving around.

And here is what it looked like before the cellophane went on…

In my chaos of getting the diaper bag ready, twins ready and looking for my keys 3 times 15 minutes before the Shower was to start (did I mention I had a 40 minute drive to the venue?!) I completely forgot to take a picture of the finished gift!!!

Anyhoozers, my cousin was absolutely glowing and the Shower was awesome and it was totally worth the minor freak outs 😊

Til next time keep it creative!

Update: My aunt took a picture of the Shower gift all wrapped up so here it is!
