DIY Baby Shower Invitations

A few weeks ago I shared my DIY baby book crate that I made for my friend’s shower, and today, in continuation of all things baby, I’m here to show you the invitations I made! Since the shower was a surprise, I made an extra one and gave it to the momma-to-be with her gifts! Also, less than a month until this little one makes her appearance! I’m so excited to be an aunt… well, sort of

What you’ll need:

  • 5″ square card stock cutouts  (I used my Cricut)
  • 4.5″ square invitation cutouts (with the main information on one of the cutouts, and the registry and RSVP information on another cutout) – leaving a strip in the middle for ribbon
  • Washi tape
  • Thin ribbon
  • Small stamp (I got mine from Michaels)
  • Ink
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun
  • Spray adhesiv
  • Step 1: Attach a piece of washi tape to each of the invitation cutouts, leaving a little extra at each end (these will fold over later)
  • Step 2: Using your glue gun, glue the ribbon on top of the washi tape, again leaving a little bit of extra at each end. Repeat for the back of the invitation.

    Step 3: Fold over the washi tape edges on to the back of the invitation and using your glue gun, glue the edges of the ribbon to the back.

    Step 4: Using a small stamp (I used a heart stamp), stamp a piece of card stock and cut out the shape, hot gluing it to the right side of the ribbon, on a slight angle.

  • Step 5: Using adhesive spray, adhere the invitation to the card stock cutouts, repeating for the back. Place the invitations under a heavy pile of books to ensure they dry flat.
  • And there you have it – cute and simple DIY baby shower invitations!
