and all of the invitation shells (they will be lined with white paper, so the solid red/pink/brown/etc parts will be white):

also, the mock-up invitation with plain paper on the outside, showing the interior and the closing-pins:

the invitations can't be finished yet because she hasn't settled on a date or time (growl). the wreath still needs more things tied onto it, and i plan to find some lavender ribbon to add, to offset the lakers-color-scheme it has going on now.

comments? suggestions?

******update******
okay, i got the light purple ribbon today (that was a chore and a half, i'll explain that in my tutorial i'm gonna make later) and added that, plus the rest of the gift/toy thingies:

aaaand, the mommy-to-be's corsage, which took (i swear) like 8 hours to make:

well, they had some diaper-shaped invitations at walmart, but they are really not very well done and they don't explain the concept of a diaper shower on the inside...also, they just have one plastic diaper pin glued to the middle of the diaper, rather than real pins. also, they were white with blue and pink baby-print on the outside, and scalloped edges, which i found way too...cheap looking? i guess?

best friends daughter is pregnant and I'm not sure if they will have a shower as this is her fourth child, but a wreath with all the fixin's would make a great gift. your wreath and the invites are very nice.
