  • You can go to any office store and get card stock with a cute "baby" border on it (or just plain color card stock) and then print them off of your computer.

  • You can do photo card invites on sites like Snapfish.com. Not sure if you would want to do something like that for a baby shower. But if you take some pictures, like say the mother's belly with their hands on the belly, that would be different and original. Or yeah, get some cardstock. My cousin and I made our wedding invites from cardstock. Easy.

  • How creative/original do you want to go?
    How much money and time do you have?

  • I made invitations for my friend's twin baby shower. I bought white vellum at a craft store and folded it like a cloth diaper. I used a tiny teddy bear craft punch to make teddy bears to glue on the safety pins I closed them with so they looked like diaper pins. Then I printed on cute colored paper a poem I wrote about how she was going to need two of everything, along with the location, date, etc. I slipped the colored paper square inside the vellum diaper envelope and it was super cute. I had to make custome envelopes out of white paper to mail them, and it cost more than one postage stamp, but it was so worth it.

  • i think if she's having twins you should maybe do something with two... such as two babies heads, two storks, etc.

  • i like shutterfly. but its pricy at original prices. work those savings they arent had to obtain. or try vista print. if you sign up to be a rep, you can get discounts. doesnt cost you anything to do that...or it didnt when i signed up
