|Minion Birthday Party Invitation|
I made 50 of these invitations for one of the munchkin's birthday party. I saw something in Pinterest, but there was no link to a tutorial, just the image.
All paper is by Recollections unless noted otherwise.
Yellow Cardstock Base: cut to 4"x11"
Blue Cardstock: Bottom strip - 4"x1", Squares - 2"x2", Straps - 3/8"x2"
Black Cardstock: Cut to 1/2"x 4 1/4"
Eyes Cut using Cricut Plantin SchoolBook cartridge - Circle
Silver Shimmer Cardstock: Cut at 1 1/2"
White Cardstock: Cut at 1"
Brown Cardstock (Core'dinations brand): Cut at 1/2"
The card folds at the top and measures 4"x5 1/2" when folded. I had to eyeball the pieces for the overalls, so they aren't very centered, but making 50 of these was quite an undertaking. I drew the smile with a black Sharpie. I had glued the eye pieces with a liquid glue, which caused a bit of warping. I used my ATG to attach the blue pieces, then place all of the invitations under heavy books to flatten them out. I thought about doing more, but I need to get these to the parent's of the birthday girl and cost was also an issue. I have several projects I'm doing for this party, only a few of which are completed at this moment, so I need to be careful with my spending.
