Handmade Baby Annoucements

I love handmade cards.  I have never bought a card from the store, I have always made them.  For all of my kids I have made the baby announcements, I know that digital announcements would have been easier but handmade are cuter. :)

Before I had little Koy, I did a lot of the prep work.  Cut out the strips of paper, scalloped the edges and cut the onesies out with my Cricut.  Then after he was born, I printed out the announcements on card stock and then assembled them all together.

I love how they turned out!  I used pop dots to make the onesie 3D.
