I seem to work on just about everything last minute. I don't know if I necessarily work well under pressure or I just can't get my act together! But the invitations have been sent, so this Mickey Mouse birthday party is really going to happen!
I loved creating these Mickey Mouse party invitations! When it comes to invites, I'm usually a Photoshop gal. So it was fun to to do some paper crafting this time instead!
Do you want to create your own Mickey Mouse pocket invitation?
Come check it out...
I started out by creating a Mickey head and a pocket sized to fit in Photoshop. Then I cut them out on my Cricut. I also cut out "A" monograms.
Each invitation needed:
-- A Mickey head (black)
-- Pocket (red)
-- 2 buttons
-- 2 monograms (to layer on top of each other)
-- Circle invitation to place inside pouch
-- A picture for the back!
First, I carefully sewed the pocket to the Mickey head, making sure they were lined up perfectly.
Next, I ran the monograms through my Cuttlebug machine to give them some texture. I pasted these on the front of the Mickey head.
Little Man loved helping with this part! He loves using my craft machines!
I traced a cup to create a circle on my photo, cut it out, and pasted this on the back.
All done! What do you think??
You know me--I have to personalize everything with a photo!
This is the circle invitation I slipped inside the pouch.
Did you know there is a "Mickey Mouse" and "Minnie Mouse" font?! I used the Minnie Mouse font so it would scream Mickey Mouse!
Invitations mailed.... check!
Now I just need to do everything else!
In my search on Pinterest, I found many lovely Mickey Mouse invitations! I used a combination of the ideas I found here at Pieper's Timeless Memories etsy shop and here at Embellishing Life. Thanks for the great ideas, ladies!
Come back tonight around 5:00 PM to link up your fabulous ideas!
