DIY Baby Shower Invitations

This weekend was full of projects! We managed to get the changing table primed and painted, started on a new art project for the nursery, a DIY gift for a special someone and we made my baby shower invitations!

I found this adorable “How To” from Stamp That on Tip Junkie.  We took the idea and made it our own. 

The thing I love the most is no two invitations are the same! We decorated each one differently and used different colors so each one is unique. The main difference in our onesie invites compared to the ones you can find here is, we decided not to use the stamp. After some trial and error we discovered the stamp on the inside was a little messy and sometimes hard to read. Instead we printed the messaging on a separate sheet of card stock and taped it to the inside with double sided tape.

Another thing that made our invites a little more unique was that we added either ruffles, ribbon or rub-ons to the back side to make a little ruffled bottom on the onesie. So cute! (sorry the images are a little blurry, but you get the idea)



We are incorporating the onesies in the baby shower as well by playing this fun game we played on my bachelorette party. Everyone brings an unwrapped onesie that best represents their personality or favorite memory with me, and then I have to guess who brought which one. (We included an insert in the invitations with instructions for our guests).

Here's an example:

We’re going to have everyone pin their onesie on a clothes line when they come in to the shower to incorporate them in the baby shower d├ęcor.

I can’t wait to see all the fun, creative ideas!
