Cupcake Onesie Gift Cups

Cute Baby Cupcake Onesie Homemade Gift Bag Idea

If you have been following our blog for awhile, then you are probably familiar with the cupcake onesies gift box tutorial that I shared a couple years ago. This has been, by far, my favorite all time gift to give at baby showers or expecting mothers. I have made tons of these for friends and family. And, most of my friends know I make these, and have asked me to make these cute gift boxes for them.

Recently, I had a friend who was attending a triple baby shower, and she had already purchased gift cards for each of the mothers-to-be, but she wanted to add a little something extra special with the gift cards. Well, long story short, the single cupcake onesie gift cups were born!

Here is a quick video tutorial of how I made this super easy and super cute baby gift idea:

For each single cupcake onesie cup I used:

  • Baby onesie
  • Pair of infant socks
  • Cupcake liner
  • Small plastic cup
  • Small plastic gift bag
  • Ribbon

After I rolled the onesie and the socks into a cupcake shape, I placed the “cupcake” in a cute patterned cupcake liner, then inside the plastic cup, and then the whole thing inside a clear plastic gift bag.

The best part is that you can make this simple gift idea for a girl:

…or boy. It all depends on the onesie and sock choices you use. And if the mother-to-be doesn’t know the gender of her baby yet, simply pick a non-gender specific color or patterned onesie.
