Baby Showers

Is it lame...

To make your own baby shower invitations? I love to scrapbook and make cards, and my sister is the farthest thing from being crafty. I have offered to make the invites for her... is that really lame?

Re: Is it lame...

  • I think it depends on who you ask. My mom and sisters are throwing my shower, but I made the invites and they have done everything else. I just wanted to help in some way and was worried my mom was going to buy some cheap handwritten ones.

  • I don't think that it's lame at all!  I am picking out my own invites because I have different taste than my sis.  If I was crafty I would make my own.

    Have fun !

  • If your sister is all for it, then what the heck!  No need for you guys need to announce it either...if no one knows, then it's not a big deal (I'm sure they wouldn't care either if they did know).  Want to make some for me?  Haha, jk!  Good luck!

  • No, I don't think it's a big deal for you to do this.  As long as your hostess is okay with it I wouldn't worry about it. 
  • no its actually a great idea, it will save money if you do it right and it will be unique.
