please forgive the terrible pics,
but i can’t always craft in daylight!
i made these itty bitty invites for gracie’s tiny party.
here’s a little how-to:
i had blank cards on hand.
i think they measured about 6″ x 5″ when folded.
after fiddling for a bit with my word processor
i printed the invites in a tiny font of gracie’s choosing.
then i cut down the invite using my rotary cutter.
from my random stack of papers,
i cut itty bitty triangles for the pennants.
i used the disappearing glue stick and swiped it across the card,
then added the triangles randomly.
then another swipe for the next row.
don’t worry – the glue dries completely clear.
i told you!
next i trimmed off the overhanging pennants.
then i made a variety of tiny envelopes.
i basically took another envelope and peeled it open to use as a template.
i had to resize mine a bit to be so tiny, but it wasn’t that hard.
then i traced the template on paper, cut it out, folded it and glued.
so easy that i will be making more envelopes for future invites for sure.
oh, the lighting!
kills me to make something so cute only for it to look so bad!
a pile of tiny invites
and finally, each invite was put into a larger envelope,
which was then put in an even larger envelope.
