DIY Baby Shower Invitations & Thank You Cards

After the success of my Carnival-Themed Baby Shower, and the massive generosity of all my kind friends, I wanted to make sure I sent out thoughtful Thank You letters. I’d enjoyed DIY-ing the invitations so much, that I decided to do the same for my cards. However I didn’t want them to look too homespun and homemade. So I kept things simple, and glued two little blue feet to the front of the card, handwriting the letter inside. I couldn’t resist then packaging them up in some purple spot paper bags I had in my craft store, although strictly I would have chosen an all-blue theme, if I’d thought ahead. A small piece of yellow washi tape, and a label on the front, and they were ready to go! If you’d like to DIY your own, here are my instructions – OR you can buy them from my Etsy shop.

What you need:
Hint: I find all my supplies via eBay to get the best prices!
white cards 4″ x 3″
spotted paper bags in purple or blue
washi tape
footprint punch
A4 baby blue card 220gsm
white address labels 100mm x 34mm
* glue {I use good old Pritt Stick}

1. First of all, punch out your feet. I chose baby blue, because my baby is a boy, but you could choose any colour you like!

2. Then glue them in place on the card using Pritt Stick.

3. And that’s it! You’re ready to write in your card.

4. Seal up your card in a pretty paper bag

5. Add a strip of washi tape to seal, and stick on an address label.

6. Send them off in the post!
