Handmade Baby Shower Invitations

Use a baby snapsuit template to create a handmade baby shower invitation from one of the five designs included in this project by Cathie & Steve. You can also use the same template for guest cards and scrapbook pages after the baby shower.

Optional Materials:

  • Velum papers
  • Fabric brads
  • Paper punches
  • Rick rack trim
  • Ribbon
  • Rhinestones
  • Buttons
  • Sewing machine
  • Eyelets
  • Embroidery floss


The basic steps for making a snapsuit shaped invitation is to print the shower information onto cardstock paper and then use the template as a guide for cutting out a snapsuit shape. You can resize the template to coordinate with your envelope.

These are totally adorable! I love it when a baby shower invitation features something besides just a rattle or a diaper, though those are cute. And even something non-baby-related works, too. I saw invitations that were shaped like umbrellas that actually opened and closed like little drink umbrellas. Insanely cute!
