One note: Of course you must have cupcakes to photograph birthday party invitations, right? I stopped at Sprinkles in Dallas today and picked up four. William stuck his thumb in one before the pictures. Ha. Today they offered Royal Baby Gender Reveal cupcakes and Katie and I both had to have one. I got chocolate, she got vanilla, but you have to scroll down to see what we found out!
construction paper in pastel colors
pencil to draw shape
glue (we used Martha Stewart's glitter glue; it has a handy brush tip)
glitter (we used glass glitter from Stampin' UP!)
Fold a piece of construction paper in half and trace the shape of the birthday candle on the fold. We used a ruler and free-handed the flame. If you'd like, you could cut the flame in yellow and glue on top of the original shape. Draw a squiggle line at the bottom of the candle and apply glue with your finger. Sprinkle with glitter and allow to dry.
On the inside of your invitation, write this message:
Come to my birthday party on Friday; It's at two; There will be cake and candles and lots of things to do;
Katie could have made all of these herself if she didn't fuss about all the writing. She's thinking we should have just used the printer...
Now, if you were a true friend, you hand-delivered these puppies right to your buddies. Here is the book I am reading, just in case you want to pick one up for yourself.
Oh, yeah, we have to cut that cupcake, don't we? Here we go!
It's a....GIRL! No, wait.
Is she having twins?
Katie's was blue. Hmmm.
