Baby Decor Wall Hanging Tutorial

I made this keepsake frame  for my Great Nephew’s Baptism this past weekend.  Isn’t he a cutie??!   I just adore him! It’s so nice to be able to hold a baby again as I was really starting to miss this, as my boys are 11 and 8 now!   Times just passes so quickly.


Cardboard cut to 4 inch square (Bazzil Chipboard)

Paper hole punch and eyelet setter (Crop a dile)

Corner rounder

Square 1 1/4 inch paper punch

2 metal eyelets

15″ length of  Ribbon, 15″ length of  co-ordinating ribbon

Foam Adhesive Tape 1/2″ wide (Scotch foam adhesive tape)

Decorative papers

mini fastener (safety pin)

Decorative letters (for initials)

1. Cover the cardboard coaster with dp, and round the corners.

2. Punch two holes 1/4 inch down from the top, and 1/2 inch in from the sides. Set with metal eyelets.   Feed the ends of the ribbon through the holes and tie off the knots.

3. Tie alternate ribbon around the frame and make a bow on the right side.

4. Cut a 2 inch by 1 1/2 inch rectangle from light weight cardboard. Cover with decorative paper.  Using the corner of a square paper punch, punch out the inverted v shape from the bottom center of the rectangle  to create the tag.  Punch a hole at the top.

5. Adhere decorative letters for baby’s initials.  I’ve used 1/2 inch  brass letters found at the dollar store.  Attach the tag to the ribbon using a tiny safety pin.

6. Cut two 2 1/2 inch squares from lightweight cardboard, cover one with paper, punch a 1 1/4″ square from center of  that square.  Place  1/4″ strips of adhesive foam tape down the sides and across the bottom backside of the decorated square, and adhere to the other square to form your dimensional frame.  The top is open to slip in the photo and plastic protector.  Stamp the word “cherish” across the bottom.

7.  Adhere the mini frame to the wall hanging, over the left side of the ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day!  If you have any questions I’m just a comment away. 🙂



  1. Thank you both! I hope you have fun making it, Lori! It was well received by my Niece at the Christening so I’m sure it will make a special gift for the baby shower!


  2. This is too cute! I’m going to a baby shower (for a boy) this Sunday and wanted to add an extra something to the gift. This is it! Thanks so much for the idea!
