How To Make Your Own Baby Shower Invitations

Updated on September 20, 2012

Your little bundle of joy is arriving soon so it is time to start planning to make your own baby shower invitations. Sure, you can buy them or have them made for you but that takes all of the fun out of it. Personalized invitations seem to bring out the more generous side in people too!

When you decide that you are going to make your own baby shower invitations you will need to decide on a size, theme, color and shape. You can look at professional ones if you need to either in stores or online for ideas or as a guideline or you can just use your own personal ideas. These are your invitations so use your imagination and design them however you choose.

It is important when you make your own baby shower invitations that you get them done as soon as possible. There is a lot of preparation when having a baby and if you procrastinate, you may find yourself running out of time and running out of energy. Leaving them until the last minute and being forced to rush will ultimately take away from your fun and creativity.

When you make your own baby shower invitations you get to create something unique that no one else has ever had. You can draw, use paints, paper-cuts and stickers. Craft stores will carry plenty of stickers and fun tools designed around baby shower themes. Some great ideas for covers of the invitation can include baby feet prints, baby pins, picture of the ultrasound, flowers, butterflies, frogs and diapers. You can use ribbons, sequence, real baby pins and endless amount of color. Scrap-booking paper is also ideal for invitations because there are so many great patterns to choose from.

After choosing a theme and design when you make your own baby shower invitations you will need a verse. This verse is a literary composition that will express some kind of idea or emotion, often in the form of a metaphor or rhyme. You only need one verse so take the time and pick a good one. Your verse should go along with your theme of the card when possible. A verse can easily be found in poetry, books, online or in music and can even be an old special saying that perhaps your grandmother passed down to you.

Choosing to make your own baby shower invitation is a really fun craft activity to do, especially on a rainy or snow day. You will not necessarily save any money making them yourself once you buy all of the supplies but they are so personal and fun you almost cannot pass up the chance to make them at home. If you are not the mom-to-be and are actually throwing a baby shower for a friend or family member and you choose to make your own baby shower invitations she will truly be honored that you put that much effort into making her day so special.
