Do A Favor For The Mommy-To-Be

These DIY baby shower favors make me want to squeal. I can't get enough of these diaper cuties. The best part is, I made a template for ya, so you can whip them up in about five minutes. Let's do it.

USING YOUR CRICUT EXPLORE
There are two ways to do this step in Cricut. I used B, but A is simpler!

(A) Use the Cricut Marker for the Text - Upload the Cricut Template 1 into Design Space. Erase the white space around the image. Insert this image into your Design Space workspace. Resize this template so the black images span from the 1/4" mark to the 10 3/4" mark from left to right. If you are using the scoring tool within Design Space, add scoring lines to the right, left, and bottom flaps where you will fold. Cut the template onto your card stock/paper of choice. If you did not score the document within Design Space, hand score the document now. Next, upload the Cricut Template 2 into Design Space. Erase the white space around the image. Insert this image into your Design Space workspace. Resize the inside template so the black shapes span from the 2.5" mark to the 9" mark.  Use the text tool in Design Space to create your text on top of the circle. The text you see is called Bombshell Pro. Cut the template and print the text using your Cricut Explore.

(B) Print the Text Using Your Printer -  Using a printer, print Cricut Template 3 onto your desired card stock or paper. Upload this printed sheet of paper into your Cricut Explore. Upload the Cricut Template 2 into Design Space. Erase the white space around the shapes. Insert this image into your Design Space workspace. Resize the images so they span from the 2 1/2" mark to the 9" mark from left to right. The circle should span from the 3" to the 4" mark from top to bottom. Cut this template. Next, upload the Cricut Template 1 into Design Space. Erase the white space around the image. Insert this image into your Design Space workspace. Resize this template so the black images span from the 1/4" mark to the 10 3/4" mark from left to right. If you are using the scoring tool within Design Space, add scoring lines to the right, left, and bottom flaps where you will fold. Cut the template onto your card stock/paper of choice. If you did not score the document within Design Space, hand score the document now.

BY HAND
If you do not have a Cricut, here is how to do this step by hand:

Print Cut By Hand Template. Cut out each piece. Score and fold along the score lines.
