My 9-year old still wants to have a themed party and invite everyone he knows. So this year we're having a Despicable Me! Party for all the minions in the neighborhood. My dear friend Linda is making a Minion cake for us and I can't wait to see how it turns out. And of course that means we need an appropriate invitation:
|Colors: Daffodil Delight, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip. Punches: 1-3/4", 1-3/8", 3/4" Circles and Itty Bitty Punch Pack. Accessories: White Gel Pin and Basic Black Marker|
I have to say, that they turned out so cute and were a breeze compared to the last set of invitations I made for his pirate party two years ago. I actually put these all together in the car on our trip to St. George a couple of weeks back. To round the top, I cut an oval out from the Oval Framelits and used it as a template. Then I just layered the circle punches to make the eyes. For the mouth, I used the 1-3/4" circle punch but only punched about 1/3 of the way into the paper with it.
Wish us luck since we are doing both boys celebrations at the exact same time: one upstairs and one downstairs. It will mean total chaos for a few hours, but it will be nice to have it all done and over with too. Enjoy!
