I threw one of my besties a beach inspired baby shower, and instead of doing a typical sign in book, I used these free printable mom to be cards made by a very talented blogger friend, Grace if Overrated. I first starting using her journal pages with my high school advisory class. They are not your average journal pages, they are beautifully designed and clever. She has 43 free journal pages that you can just print right out!
Here’s how it worked… I used my free tin buckets I found on the side of the road and adorned them with crepe paper flowers and twine, remember? One of the buckets had lots of colored, sparkly gel pens, one bucket held blank cards, and one little bucket held the finished cards.Free tin buckets needed a little love:
It was a fun activity/ conversation starter to have out while people were eating and mingling. (Plus, who doesn’t love writing in sparkly gel pens?!) At the end, you can hold punch the corner of the cards and tie them together with string. A fancy little book of love notes for the mom to be!
