cool! how many invitations do you typically make for your parties? i hope you save one from each for the kids' memory books (or your portfolio!)
i usually make less than 10.. i made 7 of these - 6 to mail and 1 to keep in his baby book.
I am new to blogging so bear with me. I found your invites on Pinterest. I want to have a tool party for my son who is turning 4. Where did you get the supplies to make the invites? Did you use a template to design and did you get off the web?
I didn't use any templates, just scrapbook paper from the craft store. I fit two invitations on each piece of red cardstock by cutting it vertically down the center and folding it into three sections (one smaller to be the "lid"). Then I printed the party information on the orange cardstock and cut them out in rectangles - You could just write the information out on the orange. Then I cut blue rectangles that were slightly larger to give a border to the orange ones. And then I drew and cut out a template of each tool to trace onto grey and colored cardstock. The latches and locks were cut out of grey cardstock and detail was added with grey marker. The handle was cut from black cardstock. Then it was all glued together! I used black cardstock to make the envelopes and made the embellishments on the envelope the same way as the ones on the card. I hope this is helpful!
