Place colored paper back into your printer colored side down. Then open up your word processing program and type out your baby’s name and birth stats. You can select different fonts to spruce up your design. You can just copy and paste it until you have your baby’s name and birth stats on the page about four or five times. Then print your baby’s name on the colored paper.

Cut out baby’s name and birth stats and glue it to the announcement. Glue baby’s photo to the announcement and add decorations of your choice.
