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.
- Cardstock & Matching envelops
- Snapsuit paper template
- Velum papers
- Fabric brads
- Paper punches
- Rick rack trim
- Sewing machine
- 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.

Velum papers & fabric brads – print the shower information onto velum paper. Cut the snapsuit shape and attach to a piece of cardstock with a fabric covered brad.
Paper punches & rick rack trim – Working with a folded card, glue rick rack trim to the front of the card. Glue a small paper snapsuit to the center of the card, add pops of color with paper punched daisies and stars. Add a ribbon tie to the side.
High fashion Meets Tiny Toes!
Rhinestones & velum paper – Print a fun saying on velum paper. Cut the velum and a piece of cardstock paper into the snapsuit shape. Glue the two pieces together at the top and glue a large rhinestone over the glue spot.
Sew around the outer edge of the paper snapsuit with a contrasting thread. Use an eyelet to attach two scalloped ovals.
Add smaller layered paper snapsuit to the front of an envelope. Use eyelets, paper punches and embroidery floss to embellish the snapsuit. To add a ribbon tie, glue the ribbon to the center of the envelope prior to attaching the paper snapsuit.
