(Almost) home made birthday invitations

Someone in our home is turning five in less than three weeks and she is soooo excited! A has been talking about her Tinkerbell birthday party almost since the day she came to live with us. So, we've been talking and planning, and now we're getting started on putting it all together.

A couple of days ago, we worked on the invitations. We bought a couple sets of note cards from the Dollar Tree that would be a good base to what we wanted to do.

Since Tinkerbell and her fairy friends live among the flowers, we decided to do a lot with that (as well as butterflies, too) for the party.

This is what the cards looked like when we bought them:

And here is what it looked like after we added a few things:

It took us a while to figure out what we wanted the front of the card to say. A settled on the phrase above (her name is erased for privacy). The paper was cut out using decorative scissors. Then, A placed a fairy sticker on each one.

On the inside of each card, I stamped a "You're Invited" stamp that included the when, where, time, for....and all I had to do was fill in the blanks and write my own rsvp. The butterflies shown above were stamped by A on the other side.

It was a semi-homemade card and we both liked it at the end. She helped make them which makes it very special. Now, we just have to pass them out and see who comes to our little fairy party.:)
