fox birthday party invites ...

i mentioned that i am working on a little party for my thomas' first birthday!

i finally got my invitations together and all sent out! (better late than never.. luckily it's just family so they don't care!)

i designed the invitation, and printed it onto kraft paper.  i just love kraft paper!  it was fun to print color onto kraft paper too!  it gives it a fun touch, and is a little more unique than plain white paper!

i loved the idea of including a little mini envelope on the invitation!

 i used the mini envelope cutting die from lifestyle crafts to cut out the mini envelopes, and it was just perfect for the look i wanted!  (see ad on sidebar for a promo code for 20% your entire purchase from lifestyle crafts!)
i put the party details inside the envelope for our guests to find!

i found the green and white striped paper to make the mini envelopes with at hobby lobby, it is the paper studio brand.  it was the perfect color, and the stripes were also perfect for the stripes that i am incorporating into the party!
i found the kraft envelopes at xpedx, the kraft card stock at hobby lobby, and the black and white japanese masking tape on etsy.  (just search black and white tape)  i used the fonts- print clearly, and easy open face, both can be downloaded for free on dafont.com

the invitations are one of my favorite parts of putting together a party!  i hope it makes our guests excited to attend the party!

well, wish me luck on the party!  i'm planning to serve a small brunch!  i'll be sure to post more party details as they get finished!

also, my little ezra is turning five next week?!  i can't believe it!  since he's so old and all now, he asked for a friend party this year.  kind of kills me to have his party at one of those kid joints, but he is beyond excited, so i am thrilled to do it for him!

since i was already working on thomas' invites, i put together ezra's invites for his little friends!  i have to say, it is pretty nice not to have to plan him a whole other big shin-dig too!  the invites were super easy, because i just used the fonts and colors from tommy's.  easy-peasy!
