Baby Boy Shower Invites

I realize that until now, I haven't shared anything "crafty" here. That is about to change. :)

I'm co-hosting a baby shower with a friend, and since I love papercrafting, there was no question whether or not to volunteer to make the invites. Of course I did! :) After volunteering, the guest list numbers were revealed. Yes, TWENTY ONE on the guest list. I'll admit it...I thought about taking her up on the offer of going to Walmart & (gulp) purchasing some invites. But, I just can't do that!! Not when it is my passion, and I have the supplies!

I had pretty much decided on a super-cute invite, but decided to make a few other (5) options for co-host to decide between, since 21 of those super-cute ones would take a lot of time...maybe I'd get lucky & she wouldn't choose that one!

Guess which one she liked best? Yup. My fave too. ((SIGH))....

At least 3 hours and 12 steps later....

It was tedious, yes.
But, when I look at the finished stack of 21 baby onsie invites beside is a smile of satisfaction and joy. Ahhh....I must be crazy. :)

  1. You will be happy to know that I will NEVER toss this invitation -- ever! It is posted on my calendar and will go in my "keep drawer" after Sunday :)

  2. I can attest to it's "in-person" cuteness :)


Go ahead...make my day! :)
