DIY Baby Bibs

Hello, Friends.  I love making my own gifts.  And it appears a baby boom is on the horizon.  I purchased a few blank bibs in pink, blue and red from TSC Apparel for $1.81 each.  Then purchased a design from Silhouette store for .99 and used a sheet of Square1 Printable Iron-On (approximately $2.22 per sheet).  Tip:  I try to stock "blanks" at my house so that I'm always ready to make a quick gift.
For This Child I Prayed


  • First measure and determine how big you want your design.  I decided on 6" for these bibs.
Pre-heat heat press
  • Settings when using a heat press are: 325 degrees and 4 seconds.  This product can also be applied with a home iron.  I used heat press simply because we have a home based t-shirt business and it was available for me.
  • Press the bib alone without design first for 4 seconds.  
Silhouette settings
Silhouette process:
  • Select design and size to 6".  
  • Color fill with your choice of colors.  
  • I also added text "For This Child I Prayed"  
  • Group all together and set cut lines at Cut Edge.   
  • Add registration marks.  
  • Print on home printer.  
  • Cut with settings of Speed 5, Thickness 13, Blade 5.


Completed baby bib
  • Place Silhouette image onto pre-heated bib.  
  • Cover with Teflon sheet and press for 4 seconds at 325 degrees.  

This really is a simple process.  If you already know how to do print and cut with the Silhouette, you are more than half-way there.

Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by,   ~ Marilyn

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
