Back from vacation and back to reality!
The beginning of my August was taken up with working on invites for Meg's birthday party. This year she is going with the sleepover. I looked high and low trying to decide on what to do and yes, I went with the harder and more time intensive project!
After considering all our options, the final design was a 3-D sleeping girl layout.
First I needed to design the sleeping bag/bed. I looked all over the internet for matchbook templates. Once I found a bunch, it was then trial and error to see which sizes would fit where. The bed is a large template while the pillow is a small template.
(I used all Stampin' Up patterned paper for these designs.)
Once the templates were decided upon, I needed to find a girl image that would fit just right. I ended up taking an image from The Greeting Farm. She's a full length stamp but I only stamped the top of her. She's colored with copic markers and I cut away her braid so I could put that outside the "covers".
The last logistics problem was how to get the info. I attached a small cardstock square to the girl that you don't see until the box is opened which has the basic "It's a Sleepover" title on in. I then printed out details on a piece of paper which I folded up and put inside the box.
And now I can gladly say the invites are done and delivered. Now we just have to get through the party!
Have a great day!
