Print Flower 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.

Introduction

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.

Materials

  • Pink or blue card stock
  • Scalloped pinking shears
  • White card stock
  • Decorative paper or fabric
  • Micro-round hole punch
  • Flower template
  • Small button

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Cut a 4 1/2-by-6 1/4-inch piece of pink card stock, and trim the top and bottom edges with a pair of scalloped pinking shears.

  2. Step 2

    Cut a 4 5/8-by-9 1/4-inch piece of pale-blue card stock, and fold in half. Cut a 4 1/8-inch-square piece of white card stock.

  3. Step 3

    Select a piece of decorative paper or fabric that you like. If you choose a fabric, make copies of it with a color photocopy machine.

  4. Step 4

    Trace a flower template that you have drawn yourself or copied onto the paper. Cut out the flower shape. The template should be smaller than 4 inches across.

  5. Step 5

    If desired, a small button can be glued or sewn onto the center of the flower.

  6. Step 6

    Glue the flower, centered, to the square of card stock.

  7. Step 7

    Finish the card by gluing the card stock square, with the flower attached, on the face of the folded blue card.
