Good morning! I have been having a lot of fun crafting for friends lately and I loved making these sweet baby bottle shaker cards. We had two friends have their second child at the beginning of the summer and these were perfect to pop in the mail. These were seriously so easy to make! I have seen the technique of using foam tape for shaker cards before and wanted to give it a try with these bottle shaker cards. It worked perfectly and I was so happy with how these cards turned out! You can definitely make this card gender-neutral and it would make an adorable baby shower card!

Below is the tutorial and free printable pattern :)

Step One: Print off the free printable pattern and use it to cut out the paper pieces you will need as well as the piece of craft plastic.

Step Two: Cut three pieces of foam mounting tape. Two that measure 3.75″ x 1/4″ and one measures 2″ x 1/4″. You will need to cut the tape in half width-wise to create thinner pieces. Place them on the piece of craft plastic as pictured. Peel the paper off the foam tape and stick the craft plastic to the front of the 5″x7″ card. I positioned mine at a slight angle. Make sure to leave room for the top of the bottle!

Step Three: Cover up the foam tape with the thin pieces of solid paper you cut using the printable pattern. I used a tape runner to adhere mine which worked really well. Since the tape runner is wider than the thin pieces of paper, I folded the tape over after I ran it along the paper.

Step Four: Fill the “bottle” with sequins! I was surprised to find I already owned a little container of blue and pink sequins – perfect! I added a few silver star sequins I found in my craft stash as well.

Step Five: Place another strip of foam tape that measures 2.5″ x 1/4″ along the top of the bottle and cover with the remaining strip of cardstock.

Step Six: Adhere the top of the bottle to the card and add a little ribbon bow! I used hot glue for the little bow.DIY Baby Shower Card

Step Seven: Write “Congratulations” or any other sentiment in a matching color. I used a pink sparkly gel pen and a pink-colored pencil. I added little stars around the bottle. You can also save the sentiment for inside the card – whatever you prefer!

  1. I really love the baby bottle design and want to make this card, but I can’t figure out a way to download it. Is it not available anymore? I’ve looked at the tutorial and also in the resource library, but I have no functioning “download” link.

    1. Hi! The pattern is under Paper Patterns – Cards and Gift Tags in the Resource Library. I just double-checked and it seems to be working. Make sure you are using the black “Download” button and not the blue tutorial link. Feel free to email me at [email protected] and I’d be happy to email you the file if you are still having trouble :)
