Showers of a different kind!

Nope, not the rain but the baby ones this time!  No not mine either before anyone starts the jungle drums!! lol

I am styling a Peter Rabbit dessert table and baby shower in August but wanted to make the invitations stand out.  Anyone can print an invite so i thought they should be a little something special.

Thats when 'Laura is about to POP!' was born!  

I toyed with the idea of getting balloons printed with the same title but knew a pregnant woman trying to manhandle 30 helium filled ballooms wouldnt be a pretty sight! lol

I bought glassine bags to hold popcorn, used a decorative punch to edge the bags.  Then using a standard paper hole punch, punched two holes in the top to thread through the ribbon, the invitation was rolled up like a scroll and fastened to the ribbon with a little blue acrylic dummy (yes shes having a boy!)

 I made 30 altogether and the smell was divine!! 
I think they turned out pretty cute and set the perfect base for how fabulous the actual shower is going to be!
