Make Your Own Invitations

Make your own invitations and help set the tone for your party. Depending on what type of party you are having, pick colors from scrap book pattern paper or use embellishments that relate to your party's theme.

Think of shortcuts and gather help if you are planning on making a lot of invitations. If you'd like to save time, consider using precut and scored blank cards. This will not only save you time from having to cut and score all the cards yourself but also money since the envelopes are generally included in the pack.

When you think about the baby shower invite, think of baby items like rattles, diapers, safety pins or find a patterned paper you like. Colors can be soft like pastels or bright like the primary colors.
