Froggie Shower Invitations

Froggie Shower Invitations

I am getting ready to give a shower for one of my best friends.  This is going to be her second dear little boy!  Cannot wait to meet him, but until then I am excited to plan a cute shower for his mommy .

After talking with the mommy-to-be about nursery colors, I decided to do a froggie theme.  So many ideas pouring into my head with this theme.  To begin with I made these cute froggie onesie invitations

Tan Cardstock
Scrap Cardstock any color
Paint Samples in nursery colors and in Green
1 1/2" circle punch
Regular Single Hole Punch
Brown Eyeshadow
Cheap Blush Brush 
Google eyes
Black permanent marker
Glue gun
Glue dot roller

1.) Draw and cut out a onesie from scrap Cardstock.  I folded mine in half to make sure it was symmetrical.  I'm sure there are patterns on pinterest too.
2.) Cut out two onesies from tan cardstock for each invitation.  Glue together with dot roller at the shoulder seams.
3.) Dip blush brush into the brown eyeshadow.  Lightly dust around the edges of the card to give depth.

4.) Using the circle punch, punch out one green circle from paint sample for each card.  Glue to the upper center of onesie.  I was able to get 4 circles from each large sample.  
5.). Draw a smile and two nostrils with permanent marker.

6.). Hot glue google eyes.

7.). Punch out a few "warts" with the single hole punch.   Glue at random on the frog's face.
8.). Glue on your sentiment and event details.  You could skip this step if you print onto the cardstock to begin with, but I liked the contrasting colors.
9.). To make the nursery color card, I simple punched out the colors from paint samples and glued them on to scrap cardstock.  I am a matchy-matchy kind of gal and like the idea of the nursery all color coordinated :)

The final product turned out really cute.  Could work as a baby gift card, announcement, and more!
