Baby Diaper Invitations/Announcements

A few months back I drew up the pattern for these. They are so adorable! They make whimsical baby shower invites, great announcements and even just really cute cards to go with your gifts! (Notice that there is enough room to add a wallet sized photo of the baby for an announcement.)

Each card is hand drawn, cut and pieced together using only the very best of materials. I used double sided patterned card stock so that each one would feel really sturdy. Each diaper is lined with coordinating papers and I have inked the edges to add dimension. Ribbons are attached and little safety pins to look like they are holding the diaper together. A little onesie hangs from a string of fiber on the front. Each one is approximately 5x5. A custom envelope is made for each card as well.




Baby Girl Announcement

The inside of the announcement, note the room for the wallet sized photo

A close-up. The tag is attached with fibers and embellished with little pink feet


The tag flips up to show the baby's information



Baby Boy Shower Invitation



The inside of the invitation


Again, the tag is attached with a string of fiber and embellished with little blue feet



You can write in the information or I can do it for an additional fee





The cards you see above are examples of ones we have made in the past. THE PAPER WE USED AT THE TIME IS NO LONGER MADE. When you order yours, you can pick the colors, however, the paper will not exactly match the examples. Also, because of supply changes, eyelets, ribbons, and safety pins will be different as well. The end result is still an adorable invite/announcement but one that is custom made just for you and cannot be found nowhere else in the world! °Ü°Each of these cards is traced, hand cut and pieced together from a pattern that we made. We also hand cut and put together the envelopes for each card as there isn't one made to fit them. They are time consuming and we have been able to put in a lot of little details that make these so adorable. In spite of their size, they take quite a bit of paper to make plus all of the embellishments. We feel like we have to justify the pricing on these but it comes down to this; you get what you pay for! We get so many compliments on these because they are an unforgettable and are very different from anything you will ever send or get for an invitation or announcement!


IMPORTANT NOTE: I should add, that because the envelopes for these are square and because they are bulky in the envelope, the fee to send each one First Class Mail is about 1$, depending. They cannot be run through a machine, each has to be "hand stamped" and because of that and their individual weight, they will cost more to send.

UNFORTUNATELY, AT THIS TIME I AM UNABLE TO TAKE ANY CUSTOM ORDERS, INCLUDING THESE. AS I STATED, THESE ARE ENTIRELY HAND CUT AND VERY TIME CONSUMING. HOPING TO START TAKING ORDERS LATER THIS SUMMER 2012. THANK YOU Ü

Hello, I actually drew out the diaper and the liner by hand. From there I cut and perfected it's shape. It took me a while, but once I got it right, I thought it was worth it! Thanks so much for your kind words!
