my son’s 5th birthday invitation
brewer’s birthday is may 27th. his party will be on the 22nd, but i have already ordered the favors and made the invitations. i don’t do well with patience and i LOVE planning parties…now we both get to count down the days in agony!
theme: treasure hunt
this is our neighborhood park, riverfront park @ noisette, the party will be here. brewer and his guests will be given maps and clues to find their treasure…
i started with a sheet of white computer paper(makes 4 invites) and colored pencils.
i ripped a thin strip off all 4 sides and then ripped it in half twice to make 4 pieces
then i just drew some silly treasure hunt pictures and the info with color pencils. i didn’t worry too much about penmanship ’cause it’s an old treasure map, right?
i made 12 and then added a tea bag to a shallow container of water and piled them in…since i did them in batches a few sat for about an hour and the others for about 30 minutes. obviously the longer the better…
we decided to blow dry them to get them done quicker and i think it worked in our favor because it crinkled just right!
then i lit a few edges with a lighter and quickly blew it out. i think i inhaled too much smoke so be careful!
