Baby bump buttons - photo props

A few days ago I was texting my prego sister asking if she was planning on taking baby bump photos throughout her pregnancy. I have done a few photo shoots for expecting friends and thought it would be a fun thing for her since she is only 13 weeks (we cant tell if she's showing or not yet, hehe! Is it a bump? Is it chub?) I asked if she wanted to take some shots every couple of weeks. 

I started thinking of fun and creative things we could do for the photos and Voila!
Baby  Bump Buttons were born!

They are not difficult to make, if you have a Silhuette machine you could probably make incredibly amazing ones! Alas, I dont have one so I stick to hand cutting with good ol' scissors!
For mine, I decided to make them every 5 weeks starting at week # 15.

This will be great for her too since she is planning on making her baby book a scrapbook style one,
they will look great in there afterwards to look back on right by the actual photo!
These would make a great gift for an expecting friend as well
(I know someone else who will be receiving these from me!)

If you dont want to make your own, I have different packs available in my shop
and I make anything custom as well!

As always, thank you for reading and I would love any feedback!!


  1. Great idea and the photos will be something so fun to look back on later!

    1. Ya! One day I would love to get one of those silhouette machines. The possibilities would be endless with one of those!
      Thanks for the sweet comment :)

  2. What a great idea! My friend bought me stickers to take pictures of my bump but I never thought of making them myself!


  3. That is a wonderful idea and like you said both the photos and the buttons will look great in her scrapbook. When her child is older he or she will get a big kick out of those pictures, my 2 are pre-teens now and they do!

  4. I know it would be great wouldn't it!? I still like looking in my baby book :)

  5. This is such a great project! I hope you will come link it up at the Pinworthy Project Link Party going on now over on my blog, Just Us Four.

    1. I just did :) thank you!
      I'm following you now as well! You have a fun blog!

  6. What a great idea! I wish I knew about these when I was pregnant with my little ones! Thanks so much for sharing!

    Take care,


  7. These are great! I love the name of them too. I think I'm putting this one in my little bucket of ideas...maybe for baby #2.
    Found you on the blog hop and happily following you.
    Hope you have a chance to check me out too.
    Take care,

    1. Thanks Jen!
