Are you a mom-to-be, or already a mom, a grandmother or a friend of someone expecting? If so, here is the perfect gift to get to celebrate baby’s first year, DIY baby milestone discs. These make a great gift.
Here is a link to the store where you can purchase these baby milestone discs, DIY Craft Tutorials. Besides the milestone disc file, you also get the file for the box to store them in. I have also purchased several other files from her that I will be doing blog posts about in the future.

Making The Baby Milestone Discs
Here is a link to the instructional video.
All of the vinyl and the cardstock for the Milestone Disc and box were cut on my Cricut Maker. As you can see, the Acrylic Discs come with a film on them on both sides. You will want to remove that on both sides before you start adding vinyl.
Here you can see the the film has been removed from the Acrylic Disc on both sides.
Place your transfer tape on top of the weeded vinyl.
Use a scraper to burnish the transfer tape to the vinyl.
Apply the milestone months to your Acrylic Disc.
Isn’t this the cutest thing ever!
The box SVG comes with each baby milestone file. These are the pieces for the box.
Apply the vinyl to the box top making sure it’s facing in the right direction.
Here’s how to put the box pieces together.
Isn’t this finished box adorable!
Using white tissue paper to put around the discs and over them adds a special touch.
Adding The Finishing Touches
Add the discs to the box placing a piece of white tissue paper on top of each disc to keep them separated.
Individual squares of white tissue paper are placed between the each disc.
Here is the completed box with all of the discs.
