I always start with some inspiration, which in this case was my daughter and I sharing a brain. I had just bought my first scrapbook paper for scrapping the baby, which happened to have ducks on it, it was so cute (although it's discontinued, total bummer) Then, she had seen this Amazing Ducky Punch on Pinterest (source to be found HERE), so there we had it, a Theme, DUCKS! I quickly came up with a color scheme and an Inspiration Board and we were on our way.
First action needed, the Invites! I knew I wanted to send an actual invite, yes I still buy real books
too. Mainly because I had envisioned something soft that reminded me of a baby, and let's face it, you can only get that point across with something you can touch. I fell in love with a pale yellow fleece for the ducks and the rest fell into place. The onesie seemed to fit and the blue and yellow theme was born. I needed to send 95 of these guys, so it had to be quick, not to costly and easy to assemble. As with the other elements, I made a template that marked the sizes and placement of everything, just so I wouldn't forget later but also so I could hand it off to someone to help if needed. These notes made it really easy for assembling later and cutting out all the parts was a breeze.
