When Lily started Kindergarten last year I struggled with her party invitations. I usually try to make her invites a year in review, with lots of pictures. But other kids don't care about seeing all those pictures. So last year I made a family invite and a put only one picture in the school invites. This year I decided that I wanted two totally different invites. I have already done her water colors school invites, so it was time to get to work on the family invite. The first thing I did was cut out two inch circles of different color paper on my cricut cutter.
Then I bought a real palette from the craft store and used it to trace the base for my invite. I tried to find online templates but could seem to track down the right one. This one cost $2 at the craft store, and it was just the right size.
Then I had to cut it out. Not my favorite job, but an evening with American Pickers helped me get it done.
I printed out a variety of pictures of Lily from the year in a 2/3 inch format. I used a 1.5 inch hole punch to cut out circles of her face.
Then I taped it all together with my industrial tape gun. (Which I should post about, because I am actively IN love with it.)
