I have always done unique birth announcements for my kids and was stumped about what to do with #3. I was so stumped that I never did one, and we're now a year down the line. Of course I feel guilty so it has always been on my mind to do, and I FINALLY thought of one as unique as the first 2 (#1 - seed packet theme with baby dressed as a carrot on the front, #2 - an invoice, even stamped with "DELIVERED"). Here is #3 - I thought I'd share in case there was another craftster out there looking for an idea.

May you get your announcements out before your child's first birthday!

I changed the info on this for obvious reasons but you get the idea...

Where did you get the book card "print" ?  Did you buy blanks? Was there a template online?

I totally love this idea!!!

Thanks! I downloaded a "typewriter font" off the internet for the font and already happened to have a date stamp. The rest was handwritten. I made up the cards on my computer, I just made a grid pattern a little oversized and cut it down so there is no margin. I'm sure you can still buy the cards though from a library supply. Just now I did a quick search on eBay under "library cards" and there were some there with the pockets. Making them was pretty easy though. I printed them on my old file folders. Good luck!

I love it! I didn't send out announcements either. I have them all still all ready to go but my little man is 18 months so I think everyone knows he is out and about by now.
