Baby Gender Reveal Box

Babies! They are so adorable. It is always such joyful news when you learn someone in your family is going to be a new parent. When I was invited to the baby gender reveal party, I truly wanted to go and help celebrate. However, I unable to attend due to COVID-19. 

Regardless, I still wanted to help celebrate, so I created my own version of a guess since I couldn't attend and wear a pink or blue t-shirt. Curious about my choice... don't worry, the explosion box tells all! 

I adapted the birthday explosion box I made last week into this baby themed design. This version of the explosion box has two stationary walls, so I had to add this directional sign to be sure it would be opened in the right way. This was actually my husband's idea. 

Now, on to my guess. Drum roll, please...

Yes, I think it is going to be a boy! It is just a gut feeling. 

This carriage SVG cut file is perfect for the occasion. I purchased it from Etsy. The directions say specifically not to resize the file. I am assuming because they are afraid if not done properly, it will not cut correctly. However, if you are experienced in Design Studio, it can easily be done. 

The paperstack I used is adorable, and it was purchased from Hobby Lobby some time ago.  

These vintage baby pictures are the perfect setting to showcase the carriage. 

Here is an overhead photo of the entire explosion box. 

Next week, we are back to cards--a special Disney storybook collection. I hope you will join me. 

Until then, have a great week. 


  1. That is just so perfectly delightful! I love how neat the finish is, which is lacking in so many handmade projects online. The colour choice is truly brilliant too! <3

  2. Thank you, Margarita! You have no idea how much I appreciate your kind words. I consider you a master cardmaker. Your designs are gorgeous! (I encourage everyone reading this to visit Margarita at to view her lovely cards.)

    On the flip side, I don't mind admitting that I am so rusty after taking such a long hiatus from cardmaking. There are so many new techniques and products. Also, I do not have a natural designer's eye and I can sometimes struggle with composition and colors. What I lack in that area, I try and make up for in execution. So I appreciate your compliment!

    Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. I have enjoyed our chats and getting to know one another and look forward to many more conversations and years of friendship.
