Hello, this is Jeanette Conner. I've been a Visual Artist for eight plus years, and today I'm going to show you how to make a baby shower invite with nursery rhymes. For this baby shower invitation, the materials you're going to need is a piece of white velum paper or parchment paper, a nice card stock paper, textured if you like and an image. For mine, I chose a stork with a baby because I'm going to use the nursery rhyme Last Night The Stork Came Calling. I just did paper cut outs for this where I cut the shapes and used hot glue to glue them down. You can use clip art and cut it out or you might be able to find this image in a crafting book at a craft store and just cut it out. I'm also fond of using die cuts which are commonly found in scrap booking craft books which you can find at any craft store. You'll also need a hole punch and ribbon. To start, you're going to want to pick a nursery rhyme and either type it out or print it onto your velum. I typed out my nursery rhyme onto the velum, Last Night The Stork Came Calling, which is a beautiful nursery rhyme about a stork bringing a baby. Once you've done that, take your background paper; take your stork or any image you want to use and center it on the top of the page and then just whip a little bit of hot glue in a couple of spots. Go ahead and glue that down. Once you do that, line the two up and as you can see, it makes a really nice beautiful layered texture to it. Next, we're going to take the hole punch down and we're going to make two holes at the top of the page. And now I'm going to use a mixture of blue and yellow ribbon and we're just going to thread the ribbon through the holes. Make sure that you have the ends of the ribbon coming out through the front side so that you can tie the bow on the top, not the bottom and try to get them equal in length. You can always cut it off if you need to. And then tie yourself a traditional bow or a knot if you prefer. I'm going to just spread those out. And just spread the ribbons out. And then, the only thing left to do is write the information for your baby shower on the inside underneath your stork. Once again, you can either type that information out or you can print it. And that's how you make a baby shower invite with nursery rhymes. This is Jeanette Conner and today we learned how to write baby shower invites with nursery rhymes.
