“Little Peanut” would be a precious theme for a baby shower, or even a gender-reveal party. Fill the peanuts with pink crinkle shreds and candies for a girl, or blue for a boy, and have the mom and dad (…or grandparents, friends, etc.) open them to reveal baby’s gender. If your family lives too far for a party, stick one in the mail! Read the tutorial and make as many as you need.
