Head on over to the Pink Paislee blog to see invitation inspiration all week. This assignment had perfect timing for me. My little bub Mason is turning 1 in less than 2 weeks and I wanted to handmake his invitations. I am doing a little bit of decorating with hot air balloons, bunting, pom poms etc so I thought making the a hot air balloon template for his invites would be super cute!
I drew and traced the template on various pieces of Pink Paislee paper. I used the Soiree and Spring Jubilee collections. I am using the colours lime green, aqua, royal blue and orange as the colour theme for his party decorations so these papers matched perfectly.
I then cut out another piece of paper in the balloon shape and cut this into 3 sections. I distressed the egdges and added them to the front of the balloon. I then randomly stamped the music sheet stamp over the balloon.
I cut small diamond shapes for my bunting. Using a piece of string I wrapped them around and placed a knot at each end. I added string for the ties and hessian for the basket. Popped on the number and word 1 and added all of the party details to the back.
So excited for his little party:):) I am even attempting to make the cake......hahaha this might be a disaster!!! Can you really go wrong with a packet mix????......we will find out!
Have a great weekend, it's rainy here so our weekend might be a quiet one.
