A Surprise Baby Shower for Lexy

Surpriiiise! Betcha didn’t think when you came here this morning that you’d find yourself at a virtual baby shower, didja? One of our best blogger gal pals, Lexy, is expecting a little bundle soon, and Brittni and Kelly had the brilliant idea of throwing her an online baby shower. So nice, no? So we’re doing what we do best — everyone has put together a sweet little DIY, perfect for a shower, and we’re all sharing them today in honor of Miss Lex.

So I decided to do a teeny tiny baby version of the mini card that we did a few weeks ago! The instructions are super simple.

Just choose which version you’d like — there’s blue for boys and pink for girls! Download the appropriate file and print it out on white cardstock. Cut along all solid lines. On the envelope, score the dotted lines and fold in the two sides, securing with double-sided tape. Fold the bottom flap upwards, tape, and trim the excess point. The upper flap does not have a dotted line so you know which side is up! Score this flap and fold over.

Fold the card in half, write a little note in it, and give to your favorite mama-to-be!

    So cute! Is the heart a stamp or a sticker?

  4. Okay. Feeling a little spoiled over here! You are such a doll and I can’t believe y’all were able to keep this a secret from me! I absolutely love your lil’ card. I’m thinking I’m going to have to make these be my “thank yous”!

    Love you, Chels!
