DIY Baby Shower Advice Cards

My friend Kelly inspired me to create advice cards as a baby shower activity because she did this at my shower. I loved reading everyone’s advice when it was all over….and I still keep them in my bathroom and read a few here and there. So…I stole her questions and adapted the idea for Peyton's Baby Shower.

First, I used my address label Design Pro application from Avery to create a template for the cards (because I know nothing about graphic design). I used shipping label number 5664.

Cut them with my fiskars paper cutter (I’ve had this thing for over 10 years and I love it! The replacement blades are cheap.)

Then I get messy and design (my most favorite part of the whole process).

Neatly create an assembly line of all designed cards, so that I can just grab and sew.

SEW (forgot to take a picture).

Take to the shower….

Hang with twine and miniature clothes pins.

And have fun seeing what people wrote…

And of course, this was all made possible by mommy’s best helper...
