Happy Saturday, everyone! Welcome to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and the Pool Party Blog Hop! This hop is hosted by Celebrate the Occasion, so be sure to start the hop there! There are so many great projects in this hop...and I don't want you to miss even one of them! Plus, there's prize up for grabs at CTO and lots of blog candy along the way. Don't miss out!
If you came here from Rayna's blog (Purple Peeps Techniques), then you're in the right place. If you just stumbled upon this post and you'd like to hop along from the beginning, visit Celebrate the Occasion.
For this hop, we're all making projects related to the Pool Party theme. Well, this is just right up my ally! If you follow my blog, you probably noticed that I'm on a bit of a party decorations/invitations kick. So, that's what I decided to make for this hop. Here are my projects:
First, I decided to make a Pool Party invitation. These are A2 sized gatefold cards. The card base is an SVG file I found online (sorry, I can't remember where I found it). The file also included the scalloped circle. There are 4 different versions of the invitation.
I got the beach ball and flipflops/sunglasses from Pack Your Bags. The sun is from Create a Critter, and the popsicle is from Doodlecharms. Then, I embossed the front flaps of the card base with my Spots and Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.
The striped band just slides off the invitation to reveal the party information inside. The actual invitation was just made in Microsoft Word.
Well, I couldn't have invitations without some sort of party decorations! So, I decided to make some cupcake toppers and wrappers to match. Here they are:
I got the wrappers from Life's a Party. I think they turned out so cute! I hope you like them. :o)
