Baby Shower Invites

My family is throwing my sister in law a baby shower next weekend. When I asked if she had a theme or colors for her nursery, she said she was using blues, reds and yellows. She was also hanging pendents above the window. I thought of going for a circus theme, but decided to keep it simple. I love how these turned out.
I printed them on white card stock, two per page.

Then I cut little pendents and glued them down following curves I made from tracing bowls. once they were all glued down I ran a stitch over the top. I left some of the thread hanging off the sides.
I thought it would take me forever, but went really fast once my mom came and we did an assembly line.

Here is a list of parties I link to.

What a lucky baby, because if you put this much love into his invitation, then how much is he going to have when he gets here. What a lucky boy to have an aunt like you.
