Spring is right around the corner and you always think of weddings or baby showers. I have put together some of the more popular designs to make your own baby shower invitations or you could use them as announcements. Keep your budget in line with a few simple steps and make your own baby invitation or announcement. (Don't forget to save one for the baby's book.)
Approximate Time: 20 minutes for 10
- stock paper in blue, pink, or green depending on gender
- glue stick
- white glue
- envelopes or make your own
- stamp of rose
- purple stamp pad
- swirl pattern scissors
You can make a variety of shower or birthday invitations depending on the gender of the baby. The two patterns shown here are the ones you will need to make the cards.
- Take the pattern and place it on folded card stock.
- Cut it out.
- Embellish it with stickers or rosettes.
- Cut the dress pattern and use a small rose stamp with purple ink.
- Stamp the dress all over. Cut the arms and hem of the dress with fancy swirl scissors.
- You can write in the information or make a block typed sheet to glue in with the information on it for the baby shower or birthday.
- To make the envelopes simply take 1 sheet of computer paper and bring it up to a fold.
- Clip to fit design leaving about an inch to glue the envelope with.
- Next take the sized sheet and fold down both sides. Remeasure the card so you know it fits. Bring the bottom up and glue that side to the inside.
- Glue the other side and allow to dry.
- Fold over the top.
- Address your invitation and then put your card in it. Seal with a touch of glue.
*** Note: You can always make your designs more attractive or scale it down to a very simple item. Rick rack on the onesie or around the edges of the dress would look very pretty as well. (The point being you make them to please yourself.)
