My little girl is turning six! I'm not usually a fan of the whole kids birthday party experience, but I LOVE making invitations and party favors. It means hours spent on the computer searching for just the right images, fonts and doo-dads. This years theme is based on papercrafts which is kind of funny because the party is at a gymnastics place. So the party event and theme don't exactly match. I was going to do a cute sock monkey tumble around theme until I found these...
I found this great note card set by Suzy Ultman called Paper Doll Parade from Pop Deluxe. They shipped it right quick and I am amazed at what you get for $14.95. I was originally going to hand write the invitations on the back of these note cards but then I realized I wasn't going to like it as much as printing them. Unfortunately the cards are cut outs and wouldn't feed through my printer so I switched tactics. I found images of artwork by Suzy Ultman here and OMG I love this web site. I want one of everything from each artist. Such amazing artists are shown here. So I copied some graphics and made this invitation...
How do you like the way I blocked out the phone number? I'm so computer savvy.
I used the envelopes that came with the note cards. They are too cute.
I'll post some of the papercraft ideas I came up with for party favors. There's quite a large community of papercrafters out there. I had no problem finding lots of inspiration. Wait till you see the great paper dolls I found.
