Create these adorable Baby Rattle Baby Shower Favors with bath bombs and some easy accessories you can make with your Cricut!

Hello friends, happy Wednesday! If you didn’t see my announcement a few weeks back on Instagram you may not know the big news that I’m expecting our first baby (a little girl)! I’m over the moon excited and as you might imagine have all things baby on the brain and of course that includes loads of ideas and brainstorming on all of the fun things I can create for baby with my Cricut! It’s amazing that the latest collection I received from the Martha Stewart Celebrations line was this beautiful Mint and Blush that is exactly like what I’ve been looking for in a decor theme for the nursery. I already offered (actually requested!) for my mom to use the decor for my baby shower in a couple of months. 🙂
I decided to use my Cricut Explore Air 2™ Special Edition Martha Stewart Machine Bundle to make some fun baby shower favors for another shower I’m going to and I’m pretty tickled with how they came out… and it was such an easy project! And so quick with the Cricut Martha Machine cutting 2 x’s faster than previous Explore models. Are you ready for it?? They’re bath bomb baby rattles, how fun is that?!
Bath Bomb Baby Shower Favors and Sign
- Cricut Martha Machine
- Cricut Pastel Vinyl Sampler
- Cricut Vinyl in Black
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Cricut Metallics Poster Board Sampler
- Lollipop or Cake Pop sticks
- Glue gun
- Design Space Rattle and Sign cut files

Directions for Bath Bomb Rattles
Open the Rattle cut file in Design Space. Customize the file to however many baby shower favors you need.
I cut the rattle handles for my baby shower favors out of gold metallic poster board so I selected Posterboard on the cutting dial and then cut! Poster board is one of the over 100 materials that the Cricut Martha Machine can cut. Whoa!
Bend back the cutting mat to pop off the rattle handles. If necessary, trim cake pop or lollipop sticks to the size of the rattle handles. With a hot glue gun, apply a thin ribbon of glue to the cake pop stick and attach to the poster board rattle “handle”. If you’d rather, you can just use the poster board and skip the cake pop sticks; I decided to use them to make them less flimsy so that the handles laid flat on display.
Once dry, apply a large drop of hot glue to the base of the rattle handle and attach to the bath bomb wrapping.
Directions for Baby Shower Favors Sign
Open the Sign cut file and cut the bath tub and lettering out of vinyl (turn the cut dial to Vinyl). I used pastel pink vinyl for the bathtub and black for the lettering. Weed the negative space from the tub and the lettering and apply to the sign with Transfer Tape.
I used one of the darling mint trays from the Martha Stewart Celebrations Blush and Mint line for the sign (and another to display the bath bombs).
