The 29 by 30 - Project 5: Scalloped Diaper Invitations

I've been diligently pinning baby shower ideas on Pinterest in anticipation of my sister's shower in August. It's her first baby so I want this shower to be fantabulous and I'm all about overdoing every. little. thing. I'll be sharing all my different baby shower projects here as well. (Kelli - DO NOT read these!!!)

Daisy Scalloped Diaper Invitations:

I searched online for cute invitations and couldn't really find anything within a decent price that I liked so I made a template and did some old fashion tracing and cutting.

Used my new Recollections edger to punch some cute half daisies on the front flap.

Printed up a little insert (Who, Where, When) and glued it in the center.

Punched holes in the two side flaps to thread the bakers twine through. I also added a handwritten "You're Invited" tag to the twine before tying in a bow.

I'm so happy with how they turned out. I hope everyone loves them and I know my mom will be saving hers as will I.
