When it comes to Stationary needs, whether it be business cards or birth announcements, Rob and I always head to Minted. With a great selection of designs, paper and even a designer there to customize and help you with all your needs, we have never been disappointed with the outcome of our order.
Three years ago, once Aubrey’s announcement was mailed out, we didn’t really know what to do with the extra announcements. We invested time and money into it and were wanting to show it off. At the time, my mother had bought us one of those kits for the baby’s hand or foot print, which you could then turn into an ornament. So, I figured why not incorporate the two together into one shadow box for the wall. Three homes later, we still have a place on our wall for that shadow box.
Of course that meant, when Poppy was born we wanted to do the same for her. We headed to Minted, chose our design and imported our photos. Less than a week later, we received a box in the mail full of these gorgeous announcements. With new upgrades like envelope lining and pre-addressed envelopes, it made mailing these out to our family and friends super easy and quick. Which, lets be honest, is what you need it to be with a toddler and newborn begging for your attention. To do it for your own little ones, all you need is a shadow box, pins, the foam Foot print kit, and your Minted announcements. Organize it whichever way you think suits your style, and hang it somewhere so that you can be reminded of how little they actually were and how fast time goes by.
From my family to yours, I hope you enjoy creating these mementos to cherish.
