These egg invitations are great for any kind of party!
I have made them for a cute baby shower, shared the idea for a friend’s wedding, and now created a handful to invite our closest friends and family to Jaxson’s Dino-Mite celebration!
STOMP! CHOMP! ROAR! Jaxson is turning 4! Hooray!
Step 1: Blow out the eggs. This is something that I personally did and can take some time to do. I will have to talk about the full details of that process another time, but basically you punch a small hole on both ends of the egg and blow all the yolk out through one side. You can buy pre-blown eggs from several sellers online. To fit the invitation into the egg, I had to make the hole a little larger, and the invites were roughly 2in x 4 in and were rolled to fit in the hole.
Step 2: Fold the boxes. Quick and easy to fold! They were the perfect size for my project.
Step 3: Stamp your message on the inside of the lid. Or outside! The great thing about these Kraft Boxes is you can decorate them in millions of ways! For this specific project I stamped “Crack Me” that way our party guests would have to crack the egg to find the invitation.
Step 4: Add a small bit of Deco Moss to the box to be the cushion for your egg.
Step 5: Close the box with moss and egg inside, tie the twine or string around your box to hold it all in place!

my sweet friend and her husband are expecting a baby girl any day now and i was overwhelmed with joy when she asked me to do a mini shoot of them! i can’t wait to meet baby C!
this time of year is seriously my favorite
who doesn’t love fall
jax loves going to the pumpkin patch
wagon rides, animals, slides, food, lots of pumpkins, and playing in the dirt
what little boy wouldn’t enjoy that
the pumpkin patch is a huge field full of discovery
our favorite tradition is going to find the perfect pumpkins
we were a little late going this year
normally we go the first day it opens, but i have been so busy!
i look forward to little moments like these every year and i always make sure to capture the memories!
fall is here! so get out there and enjoy that crisp, cool air and all the beautiful colors!
i love fall and i love to make lists, so i thought i would share my to-do list for others to use! i make a new one for every season. it helps me keep track of all the fun things i want to do with Jax. we hang it on our refrigerator or somewhere we will always see it, that way it motivates us to do them! we have completed a few things from our list already, but we still have many more to check off. we hope you enjoy! be sure to check out my Pinterest for even more great fall DIY ideas!
