Oh Baby Look At These Gender Reveal Ballots!

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.

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 and insert. The text you see is called Bombshell Pro. Insert the correct color marker (blue or pink). Cut the template and print the text using your Cricut Explore.

(B) Print the Text Using Your Printer -  Using a printer, print the boy or girl page of 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.
