Hey there! My good friend Molly is very blessed to be expecting (she's actually the first of six of my immediate friends that is expecting this year, holy baby explosion!) My friends and I are throwing her a shower and I got to make the invitations. I was really stumped about what to do because I wanted them to be fabulous, then I ran across this awesome free download from one of my favorite stationary designers and I knew I had to use it! Rifle Paper Co. is awesome, we carry several of their designs at Paper Source. Martha Stewart was offering this free download on her website so I took advantage. I used Paper Source Moss A7 flat cards and machine sewed the invitation to them with robin's egg blue thread. Each envelope got a bookmark with the invitees name, a little card that says it's a book shower and to please bring a book, and a super cute book plate to go in the inside cover saying who the book is from and why the baby will love it (someday)! I used some vintage fabric sewn onto the bookmarks to cuten it up a little more.
I love how they turned out! You can make these for the next baby shower you throw too!
