I wanted a simple and nice look to it, so I went and got some light brown(off white) burlap from Joann's($2.50 on sale) and paired it with light blue and light brown craft paper(had this in my stash). Ema asked for blue color so blue it is.
I.The computer work as it follows:
First off decide on what you want to say on your invitation. This invitation has two parts:
Part I-Invitation part
Part II-Party Details
Than, using Picnic.com(free online editing program) I uploaded my saved graphic design file and was able to add text around the design. Easy heh? And free. Print as many invitation as you need.
II. Putting it together
Cut out horses(also found online) from paper you like.
|All you need|
Glue the horse in the middle of the Invitation :
|Let it dry|
|This piece is bigger than the invitation piece|
in order to create border
Note: cut it in squares bigger than what you need it at the end(again to create border), when ironing make sure you protect the ironing board and your iron by placing a piece of fabric you don't care for(white cotton will do), this step is sticky sticky.
When it's cool it stiffens and it works great for our next and final step.
Hot glue you invitation on the stiffened piece of burlap:
|Trim the burlap to creating a border around|
|Hot glue the Party Details piece in the back|
All Ready to Gallop Away
I'm more than happy how it turned out. Love it!!! Makes me smile. A lot.
And for the final touch I wrapped them in brown paper and hot glued the horseshoes I made before HERE
Hope you like it and will give it a gallop or two and make some for yourself.
Happy Birthday My Sweet Little Ema !!!
