So, as you know, Ariel's 2nd birthday party is happening in two weeks' time and it will be a fully sponsored celebration, thanks to KidzFiesta. That also means that for the first time ever, I get to sit back, relax and have a cup of tea while others are doing the decorations, games and party favours.
I have to admit that it feels kind of awesome yet a little weird. Yes, you know me. I just don't like to idle around and it makes me feel guilty if I am not doing anything for my own kid on her special day.
So, in a bid to make myself feel more involved, I requested to KidzFiesta to let me take over the job of designing, creating and sending out the birthday invites to the guests. Yippee! So, in today's Creativity 521, I'm sharing with you our DIY Frozen Birthday Invites!
1) Thick blue paper
2) Photo paper
3) Glitter foam
4) Decoration felt
5) Snowflake paper punch
6) Scissors and patterned scissors
7) White paint marker
8) Craft knife and board
9) Long ruler
11) Double sided tape and sponge double-sided tape
12) Brad pins
14) Colour printer
Firstly, I designed the body of the invite using Photoshop, including important information like date, time, address and contact number. Once I was satisfied with the final look, I printed out copies along with pictures of the birthday girl and cut them out neatly.
template, I printed out Olaf and resized him so he could fit nicely in the card. Following that, with my handy craft knife, I cut out the different parts of his body one by one. The "hair" can be quite tricky so be careful with that. Also, as his arms were quite skinny, after some trial and error, I found it better to leave a little white space at the ends so that they became easier to attach to the body.
So, somebody is turning TWO very soon! We are surely looking forward to her big day and can't wait to share more about the party with you!
