Sewing on Paper: Baby Shower Invites





I made these invitations for my sweet Sister-in-law's baby shower using paper from Target, Indesign, my inkjet printer, sewing machine, Japanese paper charms, and bits of tulle, tissue and mini-cupcake liners.

I felt like the Ban.do girls must feel when creating their head pieces...they have a fun job. Oh and yes, she is having a girl (obvi).

thanks everybody : ) Once again, this was an 11th hour inspiration project. And a perfect example of why it pays to keep bins and bins of random paper scraps & trinkets. You just never know...

Do you mind sharing where you got the Japanese paper charms?? They are SO precious!!

raya said...

Thanks again everyone. The paper charms are from a paper store in Santa Cruz, but they are imported from Japan so I imagine you should be able to find them at any small paper/gift store or Japanese store.

Al said...

Do you remember the name of the store?
