Before making the invitations, be certain of the following information: the date, time, and location of the shower; the name of the person hosting the shower; and the number of invitees. 

When choosing a date, determine whether the party will be held before or after the baby is born. If held before, the shower can provide welcome support for a potentially anxious mom-to-be; if held afterward, it can enable the guests to meet the newborn guest of honor for the first time.

  1. Cut a 4 1/2-by-6 1/4-inch piece of pink card stock.

  2. Center the vellum on top of the pink card stock. Place two baby buttons (two-hole buttons) on the vellum about 1/2 inch from the top edge of the piece of vellum and about 1 1/2 inches apart from each other. Make sure the buttons are centered (right to left) on the card.

  3. Carefully poke a straight pin through the buttonholes and the vellum as well as the card stock.

  4. To finish the card off, punch three decorative holes across the top with a micro-round hole punch.
