wonderland invitations

for the party invitations, i used this as my pinspiration. though the end product was completely different, it made me want to try to do a 3 dimensional invite. everyone got a little box wrapped in brown paper in the mail and when they opened it up they saw this 'open me' box. i found the boxes 2 for $1 at the dollar tree and covered them with some wrapping paper from the dollar bins at michael's. the tags are printables from etsy seller CherryPinkPrints, and i'm so glad i got them. i also used the background image for the rest of the paper things i printed.

inside was a white rose painted red and a scroll of paper tied with a ribbon. i used the vintage texture background image to age the paper (yay for not having to make a mess with tea and wet paper!). the stamp was also found in the dollar bins at michael's.

the invitation read:
Your royal majesty, the Queen of Hearts,
requests your presence at Alice's Wonderland
to celebrate her very merry ONE-birthday.
Follow the white rabbit to
(our address)
The party starts
February 4th at 3 o'clock
so don't be late for this very 
important date!

i had been in a computer-made invitation rut, so it was so fun doing something different this time.

i'm entering this in the subfertile frugalista's pinspiration challenge!
