  7. I have GOT to do this! I just ran across my almost-two-year-old son’s newborn onesie and I about lost it. I have a hard time getting rid of those teeny newborn things. This is the perfect idea to save what’s really special!

    1. Thank you! These were their little cards that they stuck in their hospital bassinet. It’s a fun craft and I know you’ll have fun doing it!
