Party Favors and invites

I made some party favors for Kayson's birthday party next month. I got ahead of the game, because the next two weeks are going to be swamped for me and I'll probably put my scrapbooking supplies away for a while. (I've got a catering jobs everyday) Anyways, I followed the instructions someone posted a loooong time ago for sour cream containers
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ee/index.php/resources/tutorials/sour_cream_container/

I made them in three different colors, as I ran out of scraps.

I loved the acrylic, but hate how I had to use staples, because the glue stick just wouldn't make the edges stick enough. So I went with paper. After I did them all I thought of using vellum! Duh. :rolleyes: Oh well, I like how they turned out anyways.



And these are his invites so far.

I got lazy and didn't feel like coloring them in last night. I printed the wording and used my monkey stamps for the images. So they are hybrid invites. Easy!

And a layout I completed too from some pics of Kayson's playdate last week


closeup of the butterfly cut with Home Accents. I used one of my monkey vine stamps for the squiggly line. Smile

WOW!

The animals were on a piece of really cute animal paper I had a scrap left over from. And I just cut them out.

Really cute stuff Charys! ALL of it! Kayson's party will be awesome!

Btw, if you want a quick decorating idea: buy a couple of rolls of craft paper from the dollar store. Unroll it, cut off pieces about 12 inches wide and then roll/crumple it up for vines. Just staple/tape the pieces together. And you can also save cardboard toilet paper rolls. They have a seam that you can tear along (it'll make a couple of curly pieces). Just staple those together and add some green construction paper leaves. Here's a picture of a classroom we decorated for a jungle themed kids sunday school:
