Bachlorette Invitations

So before I dive into the frenzy of planning my wedding I have my sisters coming up in July! This weekend is the bachelorette party and I am pumped. Here are the invitations. I tried to take my maid of honor responsibilities seriously by scrap-booking them by hand. I love the way they turned out. I used Laura’s colors: pink, yellow, and green. And of course I used print mixing in the paper!

All prep materials! I always use spray glue for scrapbooking. It works really well and never makes the paper bulky. I also have a scrapbook cutter. It makes every cut perfect and straight.

Making the first cut. It took a bit of time to cut all the paper down.  Long pieces for the yellow and white and squares for the green and white zebra.

Here is my mess! I always need a big table to spread out!

I printed the writing on pink paper. However I needed someway to cut everything down to a circle. So I used a glass prep dish to make a circle template for cutting. It worked out perfectly!

I needed a way to make a clean fold on the paper. I ended up using the ruler for a straight cut and a wooden cuticle tool to create a line for the fold. Once I created a little divot the fold was clean and flawless. 

Me making the clean line! Don’t mind my Sunday outfit!

Here are all the pieces glued together!

And the nice folded yellow.

Invitation all folded up. I also cut down a green piece to make a band around the invite. I didn’t want it to be the boring white. It needed some color. Layering the green paper with the fun orange and silver ribbon ended up great! I love it! I also lined the envelopes with an additional fun pop of color.

All tucked in!

Don’t you love the way they turned out? I do! Can’t wait for the party!
