super easy baby shower invitations

I've loved paper and ink for a long time, but not really in the scrapbooky way. I like calligraphy (not great at it) and stationery stores and, more recently, origami paper. My good friend gave me some beautiful origami paper for Christmas. I was waiting for the perfect project to put it to use. Baby shower! One to which our whole congregation is invited. Perfect! I knocked out 60 of these in about 2 hours.






I'm passing the idea along because it uses pretty paper but it also uses a computer and printer and does not involve lots of tiny little items to be glued on. (I don't have the patience for tiny little items). I like the quick and dirty, easy to replicate project (like these cookies, which made another appearance for Easter).

So cute! I can't wait to see who they are for...although I have a pretty good idea!

Those look great! Did you just draw on the umbrella handle on each invite? I am glad you liked the paper. :)

Dang, I wish I had seen this idea about a month ago. I had to make 40 shower invitations for my sister-in-law's shower. This would have been way easier. And cuter. I love this idea!
