With Easter on the way along with the birth of my newest adorable nephew, I was reminded of a baby announcement I made long ago that was featured on Fiskars' old website. If you are looking for a very creative announcement, baby shower invitation, or card for new parents, stock up on plastic eggs now while they are in stores.
1. Drill hole into each half of egg near center opening. Feed ribbon through holes and tie in a bow on outside of egg to create pretty hinge.
2. Use Ultra ShapeXpress with Ovals template on a cutting mat to cut out multiple eggs for interior pages. Cut photos (this size works well with wallet-sized photos) and formatted text from white cardstock. Format one oval to say "Just Hatched" and top with punched chick (this particular chick punch was a limited edition and no longer available).
3. Stack all ovals together and nest (pun intended) into egg and close to complete announcement.
