Here’s our easy and fun pregnancy announcement puzzles that we made to announce my pregnancy to our grandparents!
When I first found out that I was pregnant, I was so excited to tell Joe when he came home from work. Then once he knew … we waited. And waited. What was actually a really short amount of time before telling family and friends seemed a lot longer than it really was. But it was the perfect amount of time to come up with a creative pregnancy announcement to tell our family. (It was also a great time to come up with a list of all the things you want to get accomplished before the baby arrives. Here’s my list of the 100 things I did.) I used our wedding ring boxes to make announcements for our parents. So I wanted to change it up. A puzzle was a fun and interactive way to spread the good news!
Pregnancy Announcement Supplies
- Small gift box
- Small puzzle with 8-12 pieces (see my notes below)
- Cardstock paper
- Craft paper punch, optional
- Hole punch
At first my plan was to be ultra crafty using a blank puzzle and design the labeling myself. But after a little research I realized it was much easier (and not much more expensive) do purchase purchase a pre-made puzzle online. I used the website Print Studio. Since they didn’t have an off the shelf puzzle with exactly what I was looking for, I created a digital template to upload on to their site. They then printed the template on to the puzzle for me. The completed puzzle was shipped to me in about a week. This was MUCH easier than attempting to DIY this portion. Feel free to use my ‘We’re having a BABY!’ template bellow. Just right click on the image and save it to your computer.
I originally looked for a small all white box to store the puzzle, but found these binder clips on clearance at Target and realized the box was perfect for this project. I really like the clear top. Amazon also has some fun clear gift box options.
I printed a small note “We’re excited to tell you ….” on standard white card stock in 14 size font. Loving all things arts & crafts, I’ve racked up many paper cutout punches so I used one to make the note card. Adding a hole punch in the top left corner, I laced with ribbon and affixed onto the clear cover.
Super easy and fun way to share the good news!
