It’s celebration time in the Craftery house! We’re all so excited to welcome a brand new niece this week! Since the only girl on my husband’s side for a couple of generations has been our Bean, it’s so wonderful to add another sweet baby girl to the family!

While I’ve got babies on the brain, I’m inspired to create a roundup of 10 adorable paper crafts for new babies.

As far as my own quilling work, I created my custom monograms and cupcakes with the thought that they’d be perfect for a nursery. In fact, the Bean has some hanging in her room at this very moment!

My new obsession is paper cut art, and this papercut birth announcement by Made By Julene is perfection! She captures so many details in her work.

I love the idea of using vintage quilts as wall hangings. Since pricey quilts are not in my decorating budget, I think I’ll borrow a page from Recipe for Crazy and make a paper version!
