{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 ...

CURIOUS?

Calling all Monkeys
To Come and Play

Let’s Celebrate
Braeden’s 2nd Birthday!

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!
