When it comes to baby showers, many people don’t take the time to sit back and create a budget that shows how much money they have available to spend on the baby shower. With the need to buy party favors, decorations, food, gifts, and having to pay for a location to host the baby shower, baby showers can become quite expensive, especially if you don’t budget your money. If you are worried that money may need to be spent elsewhere, or you already know that you do not have a large budget, one of the best ways to save money is to make homemade baby shower invitations. This is a great way to show your creative side. The good thing about homemade baby shower invitations is that they are personal.
If you’ve ever had to plan a baby shower, you probably know just how expensive baby shower invitations can be. There’s only a certain number in a pack, and you usually have to buy three or four packs to send one to all of the people you want to invite. But, if you want to save money, try homemade baby shower invitations. Though they will be more time consuming then just going to the store and buying invitations, they are fun to make.
Some people may think that they are hard to make, especially if you aren’t creative. The good thing about this type of baby shower invitation is that you can decorate them any way you want. Maybe you’re using a baby shower theme that isn’t so popular. If this is the case, you may not be able to find matching baby shower invitations that you like. This is where homemade invitations become extremely important.
Homemade baby shower invitations are also great for those people who want to be able to send out something that is personal and heartfelt. Sure store bought invitations are cute, but there’s nothing better than being able to open up a baby shower invitation that is personalized and entirely special.
To make your homemade baby shower invitations, you may want to visit a local craft store and find materials you need. These include envelopes, stickers, glitter, colored calligraphy pens, and anything else you may want to put on your invitations. Since some people aren’t great at writing, stamps can really come in handy. They are easy to use and you can even get a personalized stamp that makes your invitations stand out. You can also use stamps to tie into your theme. If your theme is jungle animals, find stamps with animals on them, such as lions and zebras.
When picking out materials, remember to try to stick to the theme you already have picked out. If you want to shy away from your theme, you can always use certain colors that you’d find on most baby shower invitations. These include a light pink or purple for a baby girl, blue for a boy, and yellow or green if the sex of the baby is not known.
