How about another low-cost, super cute baby shower gift idea that you can make at home - and everyone will think you paid big bucks for!

The new thing to do when you have baby is to take a photo every month of your baby's first year of life. Then you put the pictures in a cute frame so you can see how much they changed over the course of a year.

With this cute tradition in mind, we created 12 {FREE} print-from-home, month labels that you simply print onto iron-on printer paper, cut out and iron onto white baby Onesies or t-shirts.

To make these monthly onesies you will need:

12 baby onesies (make sure you get larger sizes as the months get larger)

A cute basket to put the finished shirts in. It looks cute if you roll the shirts up so the number is somewhat showing - and place them in order

You may also want to include a little note with the gift explaining the tradition - At the beginning of each month dress your baby in a cute onesie and take their picture - this is a great way to watch your baby grow!

You can also include a 12 window picture frame - or a large, one window frame that they can easily arrange all of the pictures in!
