It was exactly a year ago yesterday that “Baby Moran” and I were showered with love and gifts from friends and family.
It was such a memorable day… a realization of the journey into the motherhood lay before me in the form of diapers, wipes, bottles and diapers. Diapers.
Lots of diapers which I was VERY thankful for a few months down the road when I failed to add them to my grocery list. That can happen to us new moms.
A year later, diapers, wipes and other baby necessities make a running appearance at the top of my grocery list. Never to be forgotten.
I wanted to share these simple, cheap, DIY baby shower invites with you. (These photos are from my shower a year ago… just so no one thinks I’m prego again! Haha!) You can spend so much money on invites these days, it’s just crazy!
Save money like I did and download and print this FREE invite (made by me, there is no catch – promise!) onto the paper of your choice and grab some twine and your favorite washy tape. Between the paper and tape colors, you can customize this in so many ways!
Set up an assembly line (maybe while you watch TV at night).
Fold the tape over the twine.
Then just cut small triangles out at the bottoms to form the banner.
Punch small holes at the top of the invite, thread the banner through and tie at the back.
Another easy assembly line (this time with a glass of wine… unless you are the pregnant one of course!) 😉
BONUS: Free “please bring a book” printable!
I requested books instead of cards at my shower. It was a great way to build up a library for Ren and we love looking back at which books are from whom.
What you need:
- Kraft Paper (or paper of choice)
- Washy Tape (decorative tape of choice)
- Printer/Computer Access
- *Scrapbook paper cutter is handy to cut invites apart

NOTE: I printed this on 8.5” x 11” card stock so each invitation is roughly 8.5” x 5.5” and I used 6” x 9” envelopes for mailing. You can scale up or down when printing from your computer if you’d like.
