Teddy-Bear Hole-Punch Baby Shower Invitation

A beloved and enduring tradition, baby showers call for memorable invitations. This idea is easy to make and are sure to generate excitement over the occasion.




Before making the invitations, be certain of the following information: the name of the parent or parents being honored; 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.



  • Decorative paper
  • Teddy-bear hole punch
  • White card stock
  • Glue
  • Adhesive


  1. Step 1

    Cut a 4 1/2-by-6 1/4-inch piece of white card stock. Cut a piece of decorative paper to the same size as the card. Glue the card to the paper.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a 3 1/4-by-5 1/8-inch piece of thinner white card stock.

  3. Step 3

    Using a teddy-bear hole punch, punch out one bear about 1/4 inch from the top of the thin sheet, equidistant from both sides.

  4. Step 4

    Finish the card by spreading a thin layer of adhesive on the back of the punched sheet and placing it, centered, on the decorative paper-covered card. Let adhesive dry before writing on the card.
