The Baby Shower Invites

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Hello Everyone!
Here they are! My mother and I have been working very hard on these! We knew we were going to have to make quite a few of these because my cousin is having two parties. One for her and her husband's work friends and one for family. We had to make a ton--80 to be exact.
We had decided on a safari theme. My cousin has a safari themed baby room so its perfect! I got started right away with a design on Photoshop. I just love the little giraffes and the baby heart.
We printed that out onto card stock at 4.5 inches by 4.5 inches. We then rounded the corners with a corner punch (really easy to find, Micheal's or Jo Anne's $8-$9).

I then cut out a scalloped square on my Cricut Machine at 5 inches by 5 inches. To save paper and cut back on waste I also cut a square inside the scalloped square (I will be using these scraps for my Bottle Buddies and Plaques!)

Finally I stuck on some glue dots in the corners and antiqued around the edges. Each invite was accompanied with a Babies R Us baby registry tag and a sweet little poem we found online and customized. I hope everyone will enjoy these little invites. They were so much fun to make and put together. Please feel free to let me know what you think! Soon we will be finalizing the menu and I have already started on the giveaways and favors. So please stick around because there are more goodies to come!
