Kids Craft: Cupcake Birthday Invitations


KCCupcakeInvitations
It’s birthday time and this year my daughter asked if she could make her own invitations. I’m not really sure why she asked, this is a DIY kind of home, so it makes my heart proud anytime my kids chose to do it themselves! I let her rummage through my papers, punches, and PSA Essentials stamps, plus we visited Pinterest looking for inspiration. She chose a classic and clean design that was easy enough she could do it herself. Well, I was right there every step of the way; someone had to take the pictures!

Supplies
  • Smile and Cupcake Peel and Stick Stamps
  • Turquoise and Lime Ink Refill
  • Black Ink Refill
  • cardstock (we used a simple white and Little Azalea from Embellish by Dena)
  • paper cutter and folder
  • 2” Scalloped circle paper punch
  • craft glue runners
Directions

To begin we made our base card. Despite my objections, Essie chose a plain white cardstock that we cut into 4x8 pieces and folded in half. Next we used the paper punch to create a window in the top left hand corner of the cover fold.

We put a message inside the window using the Turquoise/Lime inkpad, along with the You’re Invited stamp from the Smile set. Next we punched out a handful of circles and stamped them with cupcakes using the black inkpad so that it would show up on the pattered paper. Apparently I took every picture right before she stamped!

StampingmessagesWe put everything together by cutting strips out of a complimentary patterned paper and glued them down the right hand side of the cover. The cupcake circles were glued on top of the strip, diagonally opposite the window.

I let Essie write her own messages inside and she can’t wait to hand them out to her friends!
