The invitations for Susannah's last two birthday parties were riddled with puns, but alas, I couldn't come up with a single rainbow pun that really worked. So, these invitations to her upcoming rainbow birthday party have nary a pun. Kinda sad.
Well, they may have scored low on the witty factor, but they blew the competition away in the cuteness category (at least I think so)!
Nothing too terribly fancy. Just some fun scrapbook paper, white cardstock, and a handful of glue sticks. I've never gone through so many glue sticks before! Did I mention that I found a tutorial for making your own envelope liners? Check it:
The tutorial called for wrapping paper (which I plan to use in the future because how affordable is that!) but I couldn't find any that suited my theme. So I just used my paper trimmer and some scrapbook papers. This was a great way to personalize the invitations even more and use up some of that fun paper! So, thank you to Annie Get Your Glue Gun for sharing the line your own envelopes idea!
Here's a shot of the inside (with all the personal information eliminated to foil any stalkers or party crashers that may be lurking about):
Again, pretty simple but still colorful and fun. I'm very pleased with the way they turned out and I think the project yielded the prettiest box of scraps I've ever seen. In case you're curious, the papers I used for the front of the invitations and the liners came from Oriental Trading - the only place that I could find actual rainbow designs. Just a note about Oriental Trading products - they are cheaply made, but accordingly priced, too. Perfect for budgets and kid-friendly crafts!
