Pamper Diaper Invitations

I decided to throw a "Pamper" party for the mommy to be, as this is her second little girl. All attendees were asked to bring a box of diapers and something to *pamper* the mommy.

Wait a minute.... PAMPER! as in *Pampers* diapers! The idea was born LOL.

Making the invitations

I bought some newborn *Pamper* brand diapers and turned them into the invitations. I printed the "You're Invited" onto transparencies, and ran through my Xyron sticker maker machine and just stuck them to the outside of the diaper.

I made a super simple card (cuz this was a last minute shower and didn't have much time to do something fancy) and used a couple of my old punches to spruce them up, with a touch of bling. (EVERYONE needs bling!!!)

I stuck the card inside the pamper diaper, and used the closures on the diapers to wrap around and close it all up. Just to make sure the card didn't slip out, I put a staple into the top to seal them.

On the other side of the diapers, I again, used transparencies to print out the addresses.

Posting the diapers

That's it! I took them to the Post Office *as is* and they looked at me strangely, but took them! They all got to the recipients with no problem!

POSTAGE NOTE: Because Debi sent her invitations a few years ago I strongly urge you to always enquire with your Post Office if you are intending to post any item that does not fall under normal postal guideline before you committ to creating your invitations.

Did you know that you can send just about ANYTHING through the mail? I've sent

across the country with no problem, postal guidelines change regularly though so you should always check first.

It's super funny to see the Post Office employees reactions when I bring strange things in. They do charge a small handling fee, but it's totally worth it! (oh... and once, when ds came home for a visit from college, I found a dirty sock he left I took out a sharpie pen, addressed it, and took it to the post office. THEY TOOK IT! hehehe...

Anyway.... The Pamper Invitations were a big hit!
