Gender Reveal Scratch Offs

Gender Reveal Scratch Offs from Wine & Glue #gender #reveal #scratch #off

My good friend Erin finds out the gender of her baby tomorrow.

TOMORROW!!!

I’m so excited I could pee.

And because I’m really pushy excited about her finding out, I demanded offered to make her some gender reveal scratch offs for her to send out to all her loved ones to let them know.

These are really easy to make.  Just a little designing, and then some painting.  If you have a Silhouette or a Cricut, they are even easier.  Just mix 2 parts metallic acrylic paint and 1 one part dish soap.  Then tape some contact paper down to the cutting mat, and carefully apply the mixture one layer at a time, waiting about 15 minutes between each layer, and waiting overnight before you cut.

I have a Silhouette, and I use an old blade so I don’t gunk up my new one.  I cut with it on 2, my speed on 2, and the thickness at 10.  It worked perfect!

And because I kind of want to get one in the mail too love Erin so super much, I made her both sets.  So this way she can send them off minutes after finding out.

Are you as excited as I am???

If you love these, but are a pregnant woman without the patience to paint small metallic circles, I hear ya.  Head on over to my Etsy shop, and I’ll send you some.

Looking for another fun way to reveal gender?  How about these.

      Thanks Heidi!! I do too :) It makes me want to think of all sorts of things to reveal by scratch off. Like . . . “Congratulations!! You get a time out.” :)

    hello, I would love to try to make me these and was wondering the exact instructions and material. What kind of paper is used and how do how you stick the scratch off part to the card?

      Hi Sammie! In about the second or third paragraph, I mention that you use clear contact paper. The kind that I find works best is the kind from Target. Once you have painted a couple coats of the scratch off paint and let it dry, you can cut it using your Silhouette. Then the circles just peel right off of the contact paper backing and stick onto the cards. When you scratch off the dried paint, because the contact paper is clear you will be able to see what is printed on the paper underneath. Enjoy!

    Hi my name is Beth Stash and I came across these for a gender reveal party. This is the coolest thing I’ve seen. My due date is July but I find out at the end of February what we are having. If you could please contact me I would greatly appreciate it.
