These invitations are for a friend's daughter. They are celebrating her first birthday soon. They are having a "Very Hungry Caterpillar" party. Eric Carle is one of my favorite authors of children's books, so I was excited to help her out. I found several ideas online. One was on a "What to Expect" forum. I used the idea and made it my own with my Cricut. The caterpillar and butterfly images are both from the "Word Builders - Garden of Words" Cricut cartridge.
To make the printed portion of the invitations, I printed the text on Microsoft Word, using two columns, centering the text. With a little measuring, and the help of the Gypsy, I lined up the images with the text, and cut.
The parts of the caterpillars are assembled using mini-brads from JoAnn's craft store. Each section folds up behind the other. They all fit neatly into an A2 envelope decorated with a precious butterfly.
Thank you all for stopping by. I am new to the blog world, and would appreciate you becoming a follower.
