{Banana Invitations}

Thursday, October 1, 2009
These may have taken me several hours to make, but I am SO SO SO pleased with them. I love the way they turned out!

Since Braeden is having a Curious George Themed Birthday, I wanted to do something unique for the invites. I came up with this idea from flipping through pictures on flicker, but I changed them a bit to make them my own.

Wouldn't you want to get one of these in the mail?

I first started by creating what I wanted to say on word. I put it in a half moon shape so that when I cut out the banana, the wording would be in a curve. Secondly, I cut out all the bananas on yellow card stock. Then, finally I cut the same shape in yellow felt, added a little hot glue, and wha la!

He are the actual bananas, sorry the picture quality is so poor, I took it on my iphone.

Here is the wording ...


Calling all Monkeys
To Come and Play

Let’s Celebrate
Braeden’s 2nd Birthday!

Monkey See, Monkey Do
RSVP to Natalie if you want to


I was really pleased with myself, that was until my Mother-in-Law pointed out that I forgot the time ... WHAT? I couldn't believe it! So I had to add a little piece of paper in the envelope ...

It read:

"Natalie's gone BANANAS and forgot to add the time! Please join us at 3:00 PM!"

Other than that I am super excited! Yesterday a box full of goodies got here for Braeden, and it included a pinata ... can't wait to fill ya all in! Saturday I'll show you the cute cupcake sticks I made ... stay tuned!

PS: The giveaway ends in 24 hours! Blog about this giveaway ... and i'll give ya an extra entry!
