After sharing our birth announcements, baby shower invitations, printable gift wrap, and matching gift tags, we are rounding out our Little Critters Set with this adorable nursery print. The download below includes a larger print with you child’s birth details, as well as a smaller Little Critters design that can be used as an iron-on or printable card. We love this download because it gives you the freedom to make a personalized diaper tote bag, nursery print, baby onesie, greeting card, baby blanket, or anything else you can dream up!
To edit the nursery print design, begin by downloading the free fonts Sedgwick Bold, Bellota Bold, and Yellowtail. You can use Sedgwick to edit the name inside the bug design and the birth date of your child. To customize the time of birth, weight, and length, use the Bellota font. Finally, you can edit your newborn’s full name with the script font Yellowtail. Once you have customized the nursery art piece, you can simply print it onto 8.5 x 11 white card stock. Pop it into a nice frame that matches your nursery decor and it is ready for hanging! Of course, this would also be a beautiful and easy gift to a friend or family member with a newborn. If you are using the smaller Little Critters print, you will only need the Sedgwick font to edit the name. This particular print is extremely versatile. After editing the name you can print the page onto white card stock to create a little greeting card. You can easily use these cards as thank you cards for a baby shower or birthday party for your little one. Or, mirror the image in your printer settings to create your own iron-on design. We used our PIXMA MG7720 Wireless Photo All-in-One Printer (in gold ;-)) to print our iron-design directly onto transfer paper (see the Shop this Project section!). Cut the circular design out and then follow the instructions on your specific transfer paper to apply the design. We made a cute onesie (with an even cuter baby inside of it!) and a matching tote bag for carrying all those bits and pieces that come with having a baby in tow. There are so many possibilities! Again, this iron-on would make for a great DIY gift. I love the idea of using it for an adorable bib to go with the nursery print. Have fun with it!
