Are you planning a gender reveal baby shower? Or, are you eagerly waiting to tell your friends and family whether you are having a boy or a girl? Well, I have THE most adorable gender reveal craft to share with you today! It’s super simple, super duper cute, and is SO fun to use for the BIG moment when the secret of the baby’s gender is revealed!
A paper pouch is filled with a pretty tag and coordinating clothespin. You can pass out the pouches (which are completely sealed) to your guests or family. Then, when you are ready to reveal the baby’s gender, each person tears off one end of the pouch too see if it is a girl or a boy! This is what it would look like if you are revealing the gender of a baby girl:
To get started, you will need to find some cute blue and pink tags. You also need blue and pink clothespins. You can paint plain clothespins or you can purchase some that are already colored. I found allllll of these pretty supplies at my local craft store (pssst: and they were totally affordable, which makes it even more fun to do!).
I don’t know about you, but Kraft paper is my favorite thing right now. It kind of has a rustic-pretty look to it, don’t you think? Plus, mixed with the shabby chic feel of these pink and blue tags and I think the look is so stylish! Kraft paper is thick, just like card stock. You will need to cut your paper into an 8×8 square:
Then, roll the square up to form a cylinder. Seal the sides together using a hot glue gun. You DO NOT want this puppy to come apart!
Next, you press the end of the cylinder together to make the shape of a sugar cone. Then, you seal the edge with a thick strip of hot glue.
Now, you insert the gender reveal tag and pin like so:
After that, you press the other end together at a 90 degree angle from the first seal. That’s how you achieve the cute triangular shape to the pouch:) Again, you want to seal it closed with a thick line of hot glue. I adorned this end of my gender reveal pouch with a yellow baker’s twine bow. That part is optional, but it helps point out the end where you want your guests to rip. Baker’s twine can also be found at any craft store these days.
All done! In about 10 minutes flat you’ve created a Gender Reveal Pouch that is perfect for a baby shower.
Aren’t these the most adorable little pouches to reveal the gender of a precious little bun in the oven?
