There’s nothing I like more than a crafting challenge, so I was excited to get started on making something with all the items on the challenge list and nothing more. In the design world, usually anything goes, so sometimes it feels good to have your creative projects follow a few rules every now and then!
I decided to use the items on the supply list to create a set of party invitations and envelopes. I used a bright red burlap that I found at my local fabric store – I was surprised at the range of colors available – and coordinated it with some white and red cardstock.The first step was to cut the cardstock to size with my paper trimmer. I cut 4 squares of red cardstock measuring 5” x 5” and 4 squares of the white measuring 4.5” x 4.5”.
Next, I pulled out my Fiskars Birthday Cheer Stamps. These stamps are typically orientated towards embellishing birthday cards, but I wanted to show how, with a little tweaking, they can also be used for party invites. I stamped ‘One year older…’ at the top of the white cardstock squares. Next I used the ‘Let’s Party’ stamp and covered the word ‘party’ and stamped ‘Let’s” underneath.
From the off-cuts of the red cardstock, I cut 4 rectangles measuring 1” x 4.5” and stamped the word ‘Celebrate’ on each of them and with my glue, stuck them onto the white cardstock squares under the word ‘Let’s’.
I pulled out a couple long strands of burlap twine and tied them around the white cardstock squares as a little embellishment, before mounting the whole thing centrally on top of the red cardstock and gluing down.
Next I made the envelopes by cutting 4 pieces of burlap measuring 6” x 11”. I folded up 3” and glued it closed to create the envelope casing.
I embellished the envelopes with a little gift tag which I made by using scraps left over from the white cardstock. I stamped a little star celebration design and pierced a small hole with the tip of my scissors (reluctantly and deliberately NOT using my small hole punch to do this, since it was not on the list!)
I placed the invitation inside the envelope and folded down the top flap. I pulled out a few more strands of burlap to tie around the envelope to keep it closed, and finished it off by tying on the small tag. Finally, I stamped ‘Birthday Party’ and a balloon on the front of the envelope.
Using my measurements, you are able to make 4 of these fancy envelopes and invitations. Plus, there’s space on the back of the invite for you to write the party details, time and place.
