I absolutely loved doing these invites! They were one of the reasons I bought my Silhouette Cameo! I knew I was going to do a party themed with owls. I wanted to have owls on the invite and a banner that spelled out Party, but I had to make 18 invites! That would be a lot of cutting, so I got the Cameo and wow it saved me! It was still a lot of work to these invites, but I was so excited to deliver them to my Activity Day girls!
So you are able to picture the finished invite, Everything was just glued onto some branches I twisted to make them work. They received the invite just like this... A Branch... With all the goods glued onto it!
Here is a shot from behind so you can see how I twisted all the branches...
I cut out and glued all the parts to the owls and here are the
pieces ready to go on the invite... In the background is all the banner pieces ready to be glued onto the baker's twine...
Here's the party banner close up..
I wanted to have the owls look like they were in their natural environment, so I thought of having them sit on a branch, then I would have something to hang the party banner on! Eeek! I know, soo cute!
I did all different colors of owls...
Here's a few group shots...
I grew sooo Attached to these little things, it was kinda hard to deliver them and let them go... But the party guests were THRILLED to receive them!
I really couldn't choose a favorite if I had to. I loved them all!
***We just had the party last night and it was a "HOOT"! The girls had a blast! I can't wait to share with you how it all turned out!
**You really won't believe what I made for the desert table! I will get all the photos edited and share with you! There is sooo much from this party to share with you, I can't wait! It was So fun!!! Woot woot! (I think I'm still trying to recover from all the party - planning, preparing and presentation!) :)
With much Love & Gratitude,
