Free Elephant Baby Shower Guest Book Printable. SUPER cute! And you can even customize it! LOVE this!!! Definitely going to use this at the next baby shower I throw!

My friends, I finally have the Elephant Baby Shower Guest Book Printable for you that I made for the Pink Elephant Baby Shower last month. This is a SUPER cute baby shower decoration which doubles as a gift for the mama-to-be to hang up in her nursery. I am completely in love with this little elephant I designed and may just have to make one for myself when I have another baby. πŸ™‚

No, I am not announcing anything…

Don’t let the pink balloons fool you, this elephant print can be used in a boy baby shower by swapping out the pink balloons for blue. Or for a neutral baby shower by simply printing the elephant guest book out in black and white (UPDATE*  Many of you weren’t satisfied with this option, so now there is a YELLOW eared version of the elephant too). And for those that would like ALL blue, there is also a blue eared version of the little elephant for the baby boys on the way.

Expecting twins? I have a Twin Elephant Guest Book Printable as well. Oh, and I also have a little bunny guest book if you are interested.

Elephant Baby Shower Guest Book

This little guest book is pretty simple to put together. Especially if you have a circle hole punch, which I think I will get the next go around because the old fashion way with scissors does take awhile. πŸ™‚

First off, you will need to decide whether you want to use the bakers twine to create balloon strings or if you would like the strings already drawn on.

*If you would prefer a non-editable version of the elephant printable which just says “Welcome little One” you can snag it over HERE.

*Or if you detest cutting out circles, you can purchase an elephant guestbook print with the balloons already printed on in my Etsy shop HERE.

Helpful Instructions

After you open the PDF it will prompt you to ‘fill in the form’ (you will need Adobe Reader to personalize this which you can download for free here. Or you can always manually write in the baby’s name). I created the PDF so that you can customize it with the baby’s name on the printable. Use the first name, last name or both, you decide!  You’re welcome. πŸ˜‰ In case you are curious, the font that I used can be downloaded for free here.

The elephant guest book is formatted as an 11×14 inch design. The place I had it printed at, didn’t supply that exact size in cardstock. So I printed the elephant printable on the next available size which was an 11×17 inch piece of white cardstock and then trimmed a little off the top and bottom to be able to fit inside the 11×14 inch frame. The frame I used had glass in the front, so what I did was place the glass inside the back of the frame so that the balloons could be taped directly onto the elephant printable.

Now comes the tedious part of cutting out the circles (that is… unless you have a big circle hole punch, then you can be done lickety-split! Or another great idea would be to use a balloon hole punch to actually have balloon shapes). I cut out about 30 circles measuring 1.5 inches from three different hues of pink cardstock. Just fyi, I used a spice lid to draw my circles, so don’t worry if you don’t have a compass!

As far as the baker’s twine goes, I simply secured the top of each string with tape because eventually the tape will be covered by the ‘balloons’.

For the part of the twine the elephant holds… well that part was a bit tricky. With three of the ends of the twine, I cut them a little shorter and with a tiny, tiny piece of tape I bundled them together and then glued them down. I covered the tape with the two remaining twine pieces with a small dab of glue for each. (If you want to skip this whole process just download the elephant baby shower guest book printable with the strings included. I won’t judge. πŸ™‚ )

I displayed the frame on an easel and reused the little chalkboard signs we had made for our Hat and Soup Party (There is a “Please sign a Balloon” sign in my shop if you need it!) After the guests wrote their names on the circles, I stuck each circle on the elephant printable using 3D foam squares (I LOVE this type of tape) which gave it a little dimension.

AND THAT’S IT!

Super duper cute, right?!

      Hi Jaime,
      The elephant guest book is designed to be printed as an 11×14 inch print. I printed it off as an 11×17 and then trimmed it down because that was the closest size in cardstock the printing place I had it printed at had to an 11×14. So if where ever you are getting it printed has 11×14 inch paper- super! You don’t have to trim anything down. πŸ™‚
      Cheers,
      AJ

      • Jamie Benson says:

        Thank you so much for answering me so quickly! Now I have another question….how did you get it printed at the printers! How did you get the the file? I’m not real computer literate lol!
        Thank you,
        Jamie

        • Aspen Jay says:

          Hi Jaime,
          Save the elephant guest book file to your computer and then to a flash drive. Take the flash drive to the printing place of your choosing and they can pull up the design on their computer and get it printed for you! πŸ™‚ Hopefully that helps, just let me know if not!
          Cheers,
          AJ

  1. Kimberly says:

    Hi AJ,

    I’ve successfully downloaded the PDF of the pink elephant with Strings and am able to change the name, but when I go to save and print, the “Baby…” part moves up and overlaps the “Welcome Little” part. Any suggestions?

    Love the design!

  2. Lynne says:

    Can you please tell me the exact name of the font that you used… When I click on the link the font that pops up does not look like the font you used… Please help I need to add the baby’s name before Friday

  3. Brittany says:

    Can you make the Welcome Baby editable too? I wanted to make one of these for my baby’s 1st birthday and she has an Elephant theme.

    Thanks!!

  4. Teresa says:

    I found out how to edit it on my computer. I hope it can help other people. I did download adobe from the link provided. When I click on the link for the elephant I wanted, I had to save it as a file and then open it in adobe and then it let me edit it.

  5. Monique says:

    This is soooooo cute? Any chance you can make this with a teddy bear? Pretty, pretty, please? ☺☺☺

  6. Missy says:

    Hello, I love this idea. I was able to add a name, but when it prints the name does not show. I have pulled it up on several devices and the name is there until I hit print.

  7. Brittany says:

    I love this idea! I was wondering if you could post the blue elephant link in a jpeg format, the website I would like to use to print does not allow pdf files.

    Thank you πŸ™‚

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Nasreen!
      Hmm… you know I don’t know. We had 26 circles on our guestbook… 60 might be pushing it with the 1.5 inch circles. Perhaps if the circles were only 1 inch in size. You could also print the guestbook on a larger piece of paper being sure not to fit it to size. Please let me know how you make out!
      Cheers,
      AJ

  8. Sonja says:

    Hi! I used the pink elephant balloon guestbook for a shower I planned and it turned out FAB- UUUU-LOUS! So adorably cute! Thanks for sharing your ideas and talents with us!

  9. Terri Donaldson says:

    Hi first I love the elephant baby shower guest printable however when I choose the yellow and try to print it the elephant is pink.

  10. Mai says:

    Is there a way to move the editable box down a bit? When I edit and add the name it only show the bottle of the lettering the top is covered.

  11. Jessica says:

    You are amazing! Thank you for this! I love and that you make the template customizable for name. I’m planning a pink elephant themed baby shower so this is perfect.

      • Jessica says:

        Omygoodness, now that I’m re-reading my comment, I realize it sounds funny haha. I think I was just so excited to discover the template that I wasn’t paying attention to my typing.

        I just threw a baby shower this past weekend and this guest book frame came out so cute! It went with my diaper cake theme. The mommy-to-be and everyone loved it. Thank you again! Here are pictures:

        • Aspen Jay says:

          Hi Jessica! Everything looks SO cute at the baby shower your threw!!! And I’m honored the little elephant was a part of such a lovely display! πŸ™‚ Thanks for taking the time to share some pictures of the shower with me! Love it!!!

  12. Gina says:

    I am so thankful for your generosity and creativity! This was the sweetest thing at the shower I threw today! I used the pink elephant generic “baby” print since the mama to be hasn’t chosen a name yet. Instead of a standard frame, I used a shadow box. It came out so adorable and the guest of honor was thrilled. Thank you again!!

  13. sherry says:

    I absolutely love this! Everytime I add the baby’s name the text appears directly behind the non editable text? I am using the same font as you used for “baby”….. How do it get it underneath?

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Thanks Sherry! πŸ™‚
      Hmm.. not sure why you are having that problem with the text. Did you try downloading and editing it on another computer? Hopefully that will help…

  14. Sally says:

    Planning to do for my daughters baby shower. Did you attach the balloons right at the shower, or afterwards? When all balloons are attached did you put the glass back over the balloons and strings to frame?

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Sally,
      Congrats on the new grandbaby!!! For the guest book, I attached the balloons after people signed them- a few at a time during the shower. For the glass… I’m not sure what I would do, probably just leave the glass in the back. I give the frame to the mamas so I’m not quite sure! πŸ™‚
      Hope you have fun planning the baby shower!
      Cheers,
      AJ

  15. Mia says:

    Hello Aspen,

    I first came across your designs and loved them instantly . I’ll later have more detailed questions for you later on. I would first like to ask is there a possibility you could change colors of a baby shower invitation to a mixture of the blue and pink because i was wanting to use them for my gender reveal party .

    Thank you in advance !

  16. Alessandra says:

    Hello, I love your Elephant Baby Shower Guest Book Printable and thinking of using for my friend’s baby shower. She decided to wait for when she’ll give birth to pick the name.
    My question is, is it possible to add the word one to the phrase ‘Welcome little ❀’ so that it’ll read ‘Welcome little one ❀’ ?
    If so, how is it done?
    Thank you

  17. estee says:

    hi thanks so much for sharing the printable guest book! may i know what font is being used for “welcome little”? i’m thinking of using the same font for the instructions πŸ™‚ thanks in advance!

  18. Blythe says:

    I love this and think it would be perfect for my SIL. I would just like to make a little change and didn’t know if that’s something I could order from your Etsy site, or if it’s even possible? My SIL has always called my brother “Mister”. So now that they’re expecting a baby boy, they’ve nicknamed him “Little Mister”. Could the “little” between Welcome and the heart be deleted, so that I could put it on the line below? It would look something like…
    Welcome <3
    Little Mister
    If it's not possible I totally understand. Just thought it was worth asking!

  19. Fran says:

    Hello. I love your site. It has lots of ideas to use for our Double Baby shower for my two daughters in law expecting at the end of this year. We are planning to use your blue elephant and yellow bunny themes. We wondered if the β€˜Lets shower the Mamma to be’,’Please sign the Balloon’ and β€˜Please take one – Thanks for coming’ are available to download in blue elephant and yellow bunny?? Also, are there Bingo cards available for the yellow bunny theme? Thanks so much for making all of this available. They are the cutest thing ever !

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Thanks Fran! I’m happy the bunny and elephant are going to make it to your baby shower! πŸ™‚
      I have elephant signs you can download on my Etsy shop, here is the link: Elephant Baby Shower Signs. When is the baby shower? I don’t have the bunny bingo cards on my Etsy shop yet, but I can create those sooner than later so you will have them. Just let me know!
      Cheers,

    Hi! I from Argentina, thank u so mucho for this thing. Im organizing a baby shower to my sister and this helped me so mucho.
    Love!!
    Valeria!

  21. Brianna says:

    So glad I found this! Though had some trouble downloading it since I’m working off a cell phone but I did get it to work out eventually. I’ll be using this at my baby shower next weekend but instead of cutting circles I’ll be having everyone doing their finger prints. I can’t wait to see it all done

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Thanks Bonnie! You can print the elephant out in black in white to make the ears gray or… I literally just uploaded a yellow eared version of the elephant that you can download.

      Cheers,
      AJ

  22. Cynthia says:

    Hello, thank you for having this guest book sign in available will be using it for a babyshower my question to you Is do you have available an instruction sheet that can be place at the table so they know what to do

    Thank you

  23. shira says:

    Hi! I really love this design and want to use it for my sister’s baby shower next weekend. I typed the name in the box. Once I clicked outside of the box, the name was behind the text above it. do you have any advice for fixing? If not, can I order this with the baby’s name through your easy site pls?

    Thanks

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Shira,
      I’m sorry you are having troubles with it. After you clicked outside of the text box, did you click on done editing? It may still been in the editing stage so it showed that… you could try printing it… or try from another computer. If all else fails, you could message me through Etsy and we can figure something out. Hopefully that helps!
      Cheers,
      AJ

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Oh Monica! I loved all the detail in the baby shower! The dipped peanut cookies were perfect! I’m so glad the little elephant was able to play a part and that the mama-to-be liked him. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  24. Gavin says:

    This is so cute! Im just wondering when you printed it at the store what did you print it from? Was it already on a regular piece of paper?

  25. Vicki says:

    Is there a way to add the baby’s name? I know it says it can’t be edited I was just hoping to add a name πŸ™‚

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Vicki! Uh, oh where did you read that it cannot be edited?! The “welcome little” is not edible but underneath it, where I have “baby Anderson” is completely edible. Go ahead and insert the baby’s name. πŸ™‚

      I explain how to go about it right underneath the elephant guest book links .

      Cheers,
      AJ

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Juliana,
      I’m sorry you are having troubles with it, how frustrating! Did you download the font that I mentioned? Sometimes when you use a different font although they might say they are the same “size” one could be bigger than the other. You could try a different font, or the one I set for this- its free. Hopefully that helps! πŸ™‚

  26. Alina says:

    I absolutely love this idea! This is pure talent! I am throwing a baby shower for a friend next week and I really want to use this. There s only a little problem. I type in the baby s name and it s all good, I download it and then when I open it there is no baby name. Any ideas what I m doing wrong? I will still use this anyway, even if I have to write down the name myself :). Thank you for this!

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Alina! I’m so glad you like it! That is so weird that the name magically disappears… Did you save the pdf file after you typed in the baby’s name? That’s the only thing I can think of. You could try using a different computer and printer and see if that makes a difference.
      Hope you have a fabulous time at the shower! I just love parties! πŸ™‚
      Cheers,
      AJ

      • Tiffany says:

        I am having trouble saving the PDF after I have made my changes. It will only let me save a blank copy of the page, so it looks just like the download. I was going to have it printed professionally, but I’m not sure how to do that if I can’t save my changes. Can you steer me in the right direction?

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Joy!
      Did you try going to a printing place? I went to FexEx/Kinkos to print the elephant. They had a 11×17 piece of paper (they may have not called it cardstock) that they printed the elephant on. I then cut it down to fit the frame. You can print it off on a 8×11 but the elephant will be big. Hopefully that helps, if not let me know!
      Cheers,
      AJ

      • CM says:

        I’ve tried printing this on standard 8 1/2×11 paper, but the elephant is cut off at the bottom of the page. Tried several ways to reposition the image to be higher up on the page, but with no success.

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Amber,
      I’m sorry you are having a difficult time downloading the baby elephant guestbook printable! What happens when you click on the link? Have you tried downloading it on a different computer?

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Sara,
      That would be adorable for a first birthday guest book! I could definitely customize one for you. If you wanted to place an order via my Etsy shop then I could change the the elephant printable to have the exact wording you want. Just order an invite and write me a message of what you want the guest book to say and I’ll send you the guest book. Of course if you have any questions, let me know!

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Maryann! I’m sorry you are having a hard time downloading the guest book printable! I tried it on my phone and it worked fine… hmm… could you try on a computer or ask a friend if it downloads on their phone?

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Maria,
      I’m so sorry you are having printing problems! I just printed it out normal on my printer to make sure everything was correct and for my final (since I don’t have color printer) I took it to a copy store and had it printed. Have you tried printing something else out on your computer? What does it say when you are trying to print it out?

  27. hazel says:

    Hi!!! Thanks a lot for sharing this! It’s so adorable! I have one question tho, did you stick the adhesives on the back of the balloons right away or were they on the frame already as the guests signs a balloon and stick it on? Thank you please let me know. πŸ™‚

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Hazel,
      Thanks! πŸ™‚ I actually stuck on the balloons myself- just to get the placement I wanted. So there wasn’t any adhesive on the balloons or yet on the picture in the frame. After so many guests would sign in, I would go ahead and stick them on. Hopefully that helps! Thanks for stopping by!
      Cheers,
      AJ

      • hazel says:

        HI AJ!

        Thanks a lot for sharing, I have made one of the elephant balloons sign up and emailed you a picture. Hope you get it. πŸ™‚

        • Aspen Jay says:

          Hi Hazel!

          I love it! πŸ˜€ Did the mama-to-be like it? Thanks so much for sharing the photo with me and for your sweet email. It was a highlight of my day! Nicely done using the yarn to attach the balloons by the way. πŸ˜‰

          Cheers,
          AJ

  28. Sara says:

    Where did you get the sweet little elephant image from? I’m hosting a baby shower for my sister-in-law and would like to use the same elephant on the invitation. Please let me know! Thanks!

  29. Katie Davis says:

    Love this! I have a question… Do you frame the paper of the elephant inside the glass? Or the paper is on the outside? if it is outside.. how do you put in the frame?

    Thanks!

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Katie,
      Glad you like it! I have the glass in the frame, but put it in the back in the stacking order in the frame (so as not to have the glass just laying around somewhere and to keep the thickness of the contents of the frame so it is not loose). The paper elephant is in the front so that the balloons circles can be applied directly onto the paper. Does that make sense?!? Hopefully that answers your question Katie, just let me know if it doesn’t!
      Hope you are having a nice day!
      Cheers,
      AJ

  30. Hope says:

    Hi- Thank you for the adorable idea! I can’t seem to get the PDF font to change to type in the baby’s name. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

  31. Angela says:

    I adore this! Do you happen to have a blue or grey version for the little man we’re celebrating this weekend? I’d love to use this!

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Angela,

      You’re so sweet! πŸ™‚ What I would do to make a little boy version of this, is to swap out the pink balloons for blue ones and then print out the elephant in black and white. This turns the pink parts of the elephant to a nice shade of gray. πŸ™‚ Let me know if you were thinking of something else. Hope it works for you this weekend! I love baby showers. πŸ™‚

      • Angela says:

        Black and white! Of course! Seriously, why didn’t I think of that 😜 Thanks so much for taking the time to respond. I’m off to cut out some blue balloons.

  32. Theresa Eckler says:

    This is so adorable! Do you by chance have the ability to make the elephant gray in spots where it is pink to use for a neutral baby shower. It’s so so cute!!! πŸ™‚

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Theresa!

      I’m so glad you like it! Have you tried printing it black and white? I have done it and the pink comes out a nice shade of gray. If this wasn’t what you were looking for, please let me know.

  33. Jenny says:

    Oh my goodness this is the cutest thing I ever saw. You are so talented and creative. I love it. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me. I hope to see you again tomorrow for another great roundup! #sharewithme

  34. Candace says:

    Love this! Just did a post on a book themed baby shower. Have to see if I can pull this together for my cousin’s shower on Sunday. Great idea; thanks for sharing.

    • Aspen Jay says:

      Hi Candace! How did the your book themed book baby shower go?! Were you able to to use the guest book printable? Hopefully all went well and everyone had a good time. Aren’t parties so much fun!? πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!
