I love me some mini envelopes, washi tape, and confetti so, naturally, it was swoon at first sight when I spotted these sweet, custom gender announcements by Lauren of Palm Papers. This announcement concept is so much fun, and I have a feeling that everyone who received one of these pretty little creations couldn’t wait to open them and reveal the big surprise.
Here’s what Lauren has to say about this darling project:
Courtney and her husband, Ryan, don’t live near their family, so they wanted to do something fun to announce the gender of their baby (to be born any day now!) Knowing she wanted to do this from the beginning, Courtney planned ahead and told their parents the date they would find out was a week later, so she wouldn’t have to field their questions.
I designed both cards (‘sugar and spice and everything nice’ and ‘snips, snails and puppy dog tails’ ) so they would be ready to go as soon as Courtney and Ryan found out the sex. She dropped them in the mail and waited for the excited phone calls.
I know everyone loves getting mail, and I can only imagine receiving such a nice surprise. I bet they ripped that envelope open immediately!
