Make a customizable, personalized invitation for any kind of party!

My theme for this party was a (somewhat) British Afternoon Tea and the colors were spring based with purple, green, and yellow. I wanted the invitations to reflect all of that!

However, you can change the image and colors used to suit your party.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
Envelopes (mine were green)

Pre-made plain paper card OR thick paper that you can fold into cards (mine were purple)

Fancy paper (the yellow and white flower paper)

Scratch paper

Regular scissors

Exacto-knife

Cutting board

Glue

Pencil

Individually wrapped tea sachets


Optional:

Fancy shaped scissors that create patterns when used

Calligraphy pen


I went to PaperSource and bought a pack of green envelopes, purple premade folded cards, and a giant piece of yellow flowery paper. I think it all cost a total of $15. So, I could have bought premade cards for the same price but then I wouldn’t have a fun project!


Step 2: Teapot Template

1.  Using the scratch paper make the appropriate sized template of a teapot (I used this teapot image) and cut it out. Remember it needs to fit on the card.

2. Cut your fancy paper into the correct size for the teapot.

 


Step 3: Cutting out the Teapots

3.  Trace the teapots on the back of the yellow paper pieces and cut them out. Basic scissors work well for this part but ascertain how many invitations you want to make before you start all the tracing and cutting!


4. Use an exacto-knife with a cutting board as backing and cut out the middle part of the teapot handle.

Step 4: Glue time!

5.  Paste all the teapots onto the cards.

6.  I jazzed up the cards a bit by cutting a wave into the bottom of the card. This would be easier with shaped scissors but it wasn’t time consuming with regular scissors either.
