Nautical Baby Shower Card or Book Boat

I have a fun nautical baby shower craft for y’all today.  Turn a metal tub into a boat that can hold the cards or books that guests bring.  I am throwing a baby shower for my daughter in a few weeks to y’all expect there to be tons of whale inspired crafts around here!  We are actually including an insert with the invitations asking guests to bring books instead of cards.  I have included that printable for y’all below as well.  This is a hangout on air brought to you be Adtech adhesives.  The project and opinions are all my own however.
