Made this for my niece. I actually painted this on a canvas. I took the information in to photoshop, decided fonts & size, then flipped the text and printed it out. I put the printed paper face down on the canvas & sponged water onto it & let it sit for 15 minutes. When I pulled the paper off, I had a guide line for my paint. I then painted over the letters & made a beautiful momento.

For "Late Night Diapers", the shower guests were each given a few diapers and some Sharpies and were asked to write a message to the new mom on the front and/or back of the diapers.

Get the Look: Start with a clear glass fishbowl then fill the bowl about halfway with various sizes of white Styrofoam balls and clear glass "bubbles." Next, place a rubber ducky amidst the bubbles. To add height to your centerpieces, just flip a clear glass or acrylic dish upside-down and use it as a pedestal base for the bowls.PREV5/11NEXT Down to the Details Choosing party decor for your Bubbly Ducky
