Cricut: How to Make Milestone Baby Grows

Difficulty
Time
Budget

When someone is expecting a new baby, finding the right gift that is both thoughtful and practical can be hard. I created these milestone baby grows using plain white ones and coordinating rolls of Cricut Iron-on, ideal if the parents-to-be don't know if they're having a boy or girl. In total I made 12: one for each month of the baby's first year.

How to make

You will also need:

12 Plain white baby grows (x3 0-3 months, x3 3-6 months, x3 6-9 months, x3 9-12 months)

Cricut Design Space software

Step 1

Create your designs using Cricut Design Space. Start by inserting the wreath “Charger Vinyl Wreath” #M87C7FC8.

Step 2

Change the colours of the parts of the wreath to the colour of vinyl you'd like to use. I have chosen to use a brown foil iron-on and gold glitter iron-on. I sized my wreath at around 4 ½ inches so that it comfortably fits on the baby grows and can fit text inside.

Step 3

Use the font function to add text to your first baby grow. Type the words 'one month' and then 'Ungroup' the letters to rearrange them. I used the weld function to tell the Cricut to cut the words as cursive words rather than individual letters. Arrange the words inside your wreath to check they're the right size.

Step 4

Copy and paste your wreath a further 11 times so that it is a uniform size on all of the baby grows. Create the text for two months to twelve months.

Step 5

Follow the instructions on your machine to cut your designs from the Iron-on vinyl, remember to load the vinyl onto the cutting mat shiny-side down, ensuring your design is mirrored before cutting.

Step 6

Using a Cricut EasyPress, transfer your designs to your baby grows following the EasyPress Interactive Guide

Step 7

Repeat for all 12 of your baby grows! Check out my baby box tutorial for a cute way of presenting your baby grows to the parents to be.
