Oh Baby Look At These Gender Reveal Ballots!

gender reveal idea

This gender reveal idea is my new favorite DIY. I gotta tell you, I just love gender reveal baby showers. It is so exciting to be a part of that special moment with the parents-to-be. If you are throwing a gender reveal shower there are so many creative ways to do the "reveal." I really love how these Diaper Ballots turned out. It would make a really cute photo op to have mommy-to-be and/or guests holding these. These ballots also go great with a balloon reveal or a cupcake reveal.

Upload the printable template into Cricut Design Space. Use the Cricut Explore to cut out the design onto your card stock. You can print the text using your printer first, and then upload it into Design Space. Alternatively, you can use the text tool in Design Space for the text. Use the scoring tool in Design Space to score the template along the dashed lines or use a separate scoring tool. If you do not have a Cricut Explore, you can cut the template and score it by hand.

However, the best part about these is you can use any card stock you like, so the possibilities of patterns, colors, + party themes are endless. So here is how to make them.
