Emma's Paperie: 3rd Birthday Party Invites!

Good morning, friends! I'm afraid my blogging has been rather sparse in the past week and will continue to be that way through the weekend. I am busy, busy, busy creating decorations for two little girls' 3rd birthday party on Saturday. We're having a tea party theme this year and I am so thrilled with how everything is coming together! I am also cleaning, working on the menu (and baking) and working on some assignments that are due by Monday. Eek! I have faith it will all work out though! ;)

Today I wanted to give you all a sneak peek of their birthday party invitations. I'll definitely share everything I've created for the party plus the vintage touches I hunted for and found! But for now, all you get is a sneak peek. I fell in love with the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection from American Crafts and that's been the basis for the party colors and decor. I created the invites using kraft bags from Emma's Paperie that I folded and decorated minimally with a paper strip and stamped and embossed "You're invited" (stamp by Pebbles from the Hip Hip Hooray collection). On the fold, I adhered half a doily, either a cut out mason jar or Polaroid from patterned paper plus a die-cut "3". The invites were tied up with twine.

Here's another look... These invites were very easy to put together.

On the inside I printed the information on cardstock, matted it with colored cardstock and stamped the invite with a doily stamp (My Mind's Eye)

The color scheme happened to work for the April color challenge at Emma's Paperie. Please visit the blog here for my supply list.

I'll be back again soon with their party details and a special birthday post on May 1st (yes, they are May Day babies!)

Have a fabulous day! :)
