How To Make Baby Shower Invitations
Making invitations for a baby shower is a lot of fun and gives you a chance to make the mom-to-be feel really loved and special.
Here are some ideas, tips and instructions that will show you how to make baby shower invitations in the easiest way possible.
Tips On How To Make Baby Shower Invitations
If you want to make your baby shower invitations online it is fairly easy to do so. All you need is access to card maker software and a printer. The purpletrail site features a really neat card maker.
This particular card maker offers you a chance to not only customize pre-designed card templates but also design one from scratch by creating a “blank template” and building on it. Using this software you can choose your own colors, design, frames, special effects, fonts and more.
You can also upload your pictures, video and music to go with the cards if you intend to send them via email. If you want to send them by post, you will need to take printouts or order them from the site.
Handmade Baby Shower Invitations
You can never go wrong with making baby shower invitations by hand. Handmade cards are an excellent way of showing you care and adding an extra bit of warmth to the baby shower celebration. So reveal your artistic skill by making some cute invitations using plenty of cardstock, paints, colored paper and other art and craft supplies.
You can also include handmade paper or parchment paper in your card design if you want to make very beautiful, dainty and formal invitations. Bear in mind that your invitations will have to reflect the theme and color scheme that you have chosen for the baby shower.
If you’re pressed for time, you can make a simple card by just using a craft punch or scissors, some color pens, double-sided tape and some colored or patterned paper that goes with the chosen theme. Alternatively, you can make 3D invitations, which are fairly easy to make.
For instance, if you are going to host a butterfly baby shower for the momma-to-be, you can make some small origami butterflies (not larger than 2 inches) and stick one on each invite, and then draw smaller butterflies and tiny flowers all around.
Similarly, you can use different kinds of origami that go with your theme to create 3D invitations like the one described above.
You can also use paper cut-outs and double-sided tape to create 3D invitations. First make the card base by taking a sheet of cardstock and folding it half, and then simply draw out your themed motif on cardstock and color it in.
Once it is dry (if you’ve used paint, glitter or ink), you can give it a thick outline in a medium of your choice, cut it out and using a bit of double-sided tape paste it in the middle or in a corner of your card base.
You can also draw in some small complementary designs around your cut-out to create a really nice effect. Other ideas you can use to make a 3D baby shower invitation include using colored foam cut-outs, ribbons, and relief stickers.How To Make Baby Shower Invitations,
