Baby Shower


How To Make Your Own Baby Shower Invitations

One of the most exciting activities when planning a baby shower is choosing the invitations, which can be as simple as a phone call or email message, or as detailed and charming as personalized electronic cards, pre-made printed invites or even best, you own hand-made baby shower invitations.

Since printed baby shower invitations cards come in a large variety of sizes, shapes, and themes, you may use them as guidelines to create your own, instead of only adding a personalized verse to pre-made printed invitations as sometimes may be asked for. When planning the baby shower, get them done as early as you can, customized hand-made invitations may take time to put in them all your love and creativity.

Your imagination is the limit when it comes to making your own baby shower invitations and you can print them from your computer directly after designing them with the aid of a graphics software, or simply drawing them onto the paper or card stock that is available in most favors and craft stores, along with baby showers symbols abound in stamps, stickers, and special papers available on the market today.

Making your own baby shower invitations gives you the opportunity to add one or a combination of drawing, paper cuts, stickers and ideas to a small note card, a folded card stock or a vellum charming card in a matter of minutes and do not forget the baby shower verses and poetry to spice up the birth announcements. You can find those verses browsing magazines, books or surfing the net, but to produce a lovely full effect write the verses yourself because it is not as hard as you may imagine.

A verse is a literary composition expressing emotions or ideas through literary techniques like rhyme and metaphor, and just by following a few tips, you can create the baby shower verses. First, before anything else, keep in mind that a one-line verse is enough for an invitation, then having a word in the middle rhyme with a word at the end of the verse makes an effective short poetry.

When the baby already has a name, include it in the verse as well as the name of the new parents if desired which can help to make a rhyme. If you want to be original, bake some fortune cookies, invite the guests to a dinner or coffee break, and serve the fortune cookies with the paper containing the announcement of the baby shower instead of an ordinary invitation.
