Party Time

Hello fellow crafters and artists,

How are you all? Today I am showing you some pictures of party favours and invites I made for a 13th birthday party at the start of the year. I made 100 invites and favours with thank you notes stuck on them. 

The invites were 4x6 inches or 10x15cm. I used most of the products from the spring/summer catalogue. Sadly they have retired but there are so many great replacements in the new annual catalogue that you can easily re-create something similar. I will link to my suggestions below. 

I have added some DSP, washi tape and stamp sets that will create a very similar design however you can just use the basic design I have and change up everything else. That is the brilliance of Stampin' Up! everything coordinates so you can use anything and if one thing retires something better comes in!

I also sponged the edges of some of the layers to add some dimension. The things inside the party favours are some chocolates, glow sticks and sherbet sticks, These really were a great hit! 

My layers on the invites were 1/2 an inch shorter and narrower that's 1.5cm shorter or narrower. The tags on the favours were 2 inches wide and 2 inches long that's 5cm wide and 5cm long. I also used the scalloped tag topper punch as well. Here is a link to a converter if you would like the measurements in another format. https://www.digitaldutch.com/unitconverter/length.htm

I used SU glassine bags, I think filled them with the treats and stapled them shut with SU hand held stapler. I covered the join with some washi tape and add the tag on the front. These are so simple to do it's amazing. If you are in a fix of what to do go with simple! Embellish it and everyone thinks you paid a fortune!
