recreate | handkerchief invitations

These handkerchief invitations designed by Kelli Anderson are my new absolute favorite! For a wedding they are so special. They would also be a unique addition for a milestone birthday, anniversary party, or baby shower.

I love the idea of having a map printed on them, it would also be sweet to track the journey of a couples life or a parents accomplishments. Don’t you think a tongue and cheek version would be fun for a baby shower, tracking the (oh so fabulous) weekly developments of a pregnancy? Any way you make them I really adore the sweet sentiment they bring.

An easy DIY way to recreate a version of these invitations would be to stamp blank handkerchiefs with words using a tube of fabric paint, or you could transfer images onto the squares of fabric via a printer instructions here. If you really want to make the invitations look professional, having the images sent in and then printed would be a nice touch see here.
