A Unique Birth Announcement – Step by Step Tutorial
Giraffe Birth Announcement
I’ve created this giraffe birth announcement frame for my nephews’ newly born boy. I wanted to give them something that no one else could give them. I’m in the process of making burp clothes out of cotton flannel and thought I would make something to match. With the remnants of 3-4 inches, I decided to cover a frame I found at Dollar Tree. Then I thought it would be a unique gift if I painted something on the glass. The nursery is being decorated with giraffes. I went online and found a clipart of a giraffe and modified it for my needs. I’m very happy with how unique this birth announcement came out. I haven’t seen anyone else have it. The frame can also be used as a picture frame. Just add a 4 x 6 baby picture.

Finishing the Framed Birth Announcement
Here is an example of the birth announcement. The information can be printed on a pretty color paper and using a font of your choice. As you can see this is not a pretty colored paper. I’m just using it as an example.
