The Keeper of the Paci!

The other day {after Jason had to search for Eli's paci twice during the night because his two current paci keepers had gotten old and lazy} I decided to make a few new paci keepers for Eli! These things are a life saver, and I love that I can make them any color I want....as opposed to being stuck with just the blue ones you buy at the store.

PACI KEEPERS 101

AKA The Easy Baby Gift You Could Ever Make

Gather your materials:
Fabric
Covered Button Kit
Rick Rack or Ribbon
Badge Clips {found in the office section}
Hot Glue Gun


Lay the fabric over the covered button kit, then add the button and gather the material.


After you gather the material, you snap down the covered button kit.


With just a little snap, you end up with a SUPER cute covered button!



Next, you add a little hot glue to the back of the button and attach the ribbon or rick rack. Then add a little more glue to attach the clip part of the badge to the back of the covered button.

Then you take the other end of the badge clip and thread the ribbon or rick rack through the hole in the plastic piece. Fold over the edge of the ribbon and hot glue it into place. And you end up with the cutest and easiest baby gift ever!
