OK, not really for a shower or new baby (but could be adapted to it, I think)  My husband and I having been trying to get pregnant for awhile now and I've been obsessed with making origami stars.  So I combined them into this-


We bought 6 sheets of 12x12 scrapbook paper, cut it into strips and wrote the baby names we picked on the plain side.  After putting them in a glass bowl, I tied a cute bow around it.  We had fun making them and it's a cute decoration. 

This could be a good thing to do for a baby shower (if the parents don't have the names picked out).  Have everyone write down a name and put it in a jar.  Also could be used for Wedding wishes for the new couple. 

I learned how to make the stars from this site http://www.tcpnow.com/activities/drstarorigami.html and was inspired to write our wishes on the stars.

those are adorable.  good idea!  did you specify the boy names on blue paper and girls on pink, or just mix 'em up?

The 2 girl names are on the pink and the 2 boy names are on the blue (the white stars are actually girly shoes and boy shoes patterns)   



Thank you for the compliments and well wishes  Grin

Thanks!

Post a pic if you decide to do it too, I'm interested in seeing other people's takes on it.
