::easy art party invite::

Disclaimer: I am crazy about birthday parties.  This has already been established.  

I am making two different invites for Lily's birthday art party.  One has lots of pictures on it and is for the family/adult friends, I will post it in a few days.  But for now I am really excited to talk about the invite that Lily will be passing out at school.  I worked very closely with a wonderful designer on Etsy named Bird.  She made this custom invite printable for me.  The cost was $20 and I felt like that was very reasonable.  I can't wait to work with her again.  She did some custom labels for me that I will be using at the party.  Please link here to see her clever party idea filled blog and here to see her Etsy shop.

The outside

The inside

These were so easy.  Walmart had the paint sets for $1 each.  Then I just printed out as many copies as I needed from the art work that Bird made for me.  I printed them on card stock and used my paper cutter to trim them down.  I used a little tape from my tape gun on the middle to hold the two sides together.  And finally, I put just a little bit of tape on the "are" on the front to hold it down to the plastic.  

I love the idea of giving an invitation that is also useful.  I hope that even the kids that don't come to the party get the chance to make some cool art with these paints.
