The homemade and crafty ideas always seem to be a hit here - so I thought I'd share what we made for the baby announcements. I had these all ready to go except for the date, weight, etc... and we just printed them and assembled. I found the idea in a recent issue of Better Homes & Gardens.

I included one card that had what the name meant (posted a couple of days ago) and then this page with the poem:

A tisket, a tasket
A new baby in our basket
Ten fingers, ten toes
And a cute button nose!

The vellum paper is attached with double stick tape to a piece of scrapbooking paper. A small button is glued on the top! Simple!

(And, I shudder to think of what I would have to pay to order something ready made like this!)
