These simple Summer Sleepover Invitations are a perfect way to spread the news of your party! And they are so simple to make!
For these invitations, I used the Grapefruit Collection and the Build a Banner Template from Hot Off the Press.
- Double Sided Paper – I used the Grapefruit Paper Pack Collection
- Build a Banner Template
- Tiny Tags & Little Labels Template
- Heartfelt Greeting Stamps from Hot Off the Press
- Well Preserved Stamps from Hot Off the Press
- Black ink – I only had a crayola marker
- adhesive of your choice
Step One: Trace & Cut out the Large Flag on your paper and on a contrasting paper, Trace & Cut out the Small Flag
Step Two: Using the Tiny Tags & Little Labels trace the Petite Pocket, (mark the folds too) & cut out
Step Three: Fold Edges of Petite Pocket and attach.
Step Four: Attach Little Flag to Large Flag, then pocket on top of small flag
Step Five: Trace the Small Banner on a solid color piece of paper, cut out
Step Six: Use the Well Preserved Stamps and your choice of ink, stamp your message on a solid piece of paper – now if you remember from my earlier post ( Pretty Little Purses ) – I don’t have my supplies with me, so I have to improvise with the stamp, and I attached it to a CD case and use a crayola marker for ink
Step Seven: Attach your solid stamped piece of paper to back side of large flag
Step Eight: Fill in your Party Details
Now for the little Pocket on the front of your invitation, you could stuff a little candy bar in there, a note, a movie ticket…. or make a little embellishment like I did:
To make this little pocket filler, I cut a rectangle piece of paper, an extra small flag and a little label. I stamped the label with a GoodTimes stamp, glued it all together and added a little springy embellishment (directions for the how to on the springy piece is below)
To make the little Springey Embellishments:
Cut a small rectangle strip of paper, cut down 3/4 of the way four times:
Curl each strip by rolling down, Then attach to your project, and lay the curls how you want.
