Shower Details - Food Picks

Because I had to transport all of the decorations that I made for my friend Sarah's shower back to Tennessee from DC via plane, I had to keep things small, so I concentrated on the little details.  I made a couple of kinds of food picks--some simple flag picks and some baby pic picks. 

I thought it would be fun if some of the picks featured pictures of Sarah and her husband Adam as babies. Highly personal (...the grandmas-to-be eat it up!) and super easy. I just printed off a couple of sheets of pictures and fun graphics, which I made in Microsoft Word. Newer versions of Word let you crop pictures to shapes (like circles), which makes the task all the easier!


Then, I punched the pics and graphics out with my handy-dandy circle punch (but you could just as easily cut them out if you are sans-punch).


After that, it's as simple as a sandwiching a dollop of hot glue and a toothpick between a graphic and a baby pic.  See, super easy!

Same basic technique for the flag pics, except easier!  I just cut little double flag shapes out of colored cardstock, folded them in half, and assembled with hot glue.  Done and done.



If you like the animal graphics I used for the baby pic picks, you can download them here!

  1. Oh this is way less intimidating than the family tree! I've got a shower I'm working on, so I might do this cute project. I'm pretty sure I could never come up with something on my own, so I rely on you! :)
