Whew! Summer has been in full force and we have barely sat down! Between traveling and family gatherings, this is the third day since school got out that I have actually been home with nothing planned!
I am so happy to finally have the chance to link up with Tara from 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It! I haven't had a chance to make any teaching related things, but I think summer is a great time for teachers to unwind and explore other interests. With that being said, I am exploring my newest interest of party planning! My brother and cute sister-in-law are expecting their first baby. The minute they told me they were expecting, I was already announcing that I would host a gender reveal party. They are going to find out the gender of their baby in front of close family and friends. I am so excited to make this a special experience for them!
I searched all over for the perfect invitation, but nothing seemed right. I finally decided to make my own invites!
I first typed and printed the wording for the invitation on nice 4 1/2 x 6 1/4" card stock.
I also cut this cute grey with white polk a dot scrapbook paper slightly larger than the white card stock to use as the backing.
Then I got ready to stamp!
I used these cute mustache and lips to stamp.
Using embossing powder and an embossing gun, I embossed the stamps to give them a more raised look.
I then glued the invitation to the polk a dot scrapbook paper.
But I couldn't stop there! The envelope needed to be cute as well! So, I printed this question mark paper and cut envelope liners.
I also found these plastic cups in the Dollar Spot at Target. I think I might fill them with candy and use them as some sort of party favor.
I will be posting more things that I make for this party on our instagram account @therealteachersoforangecounty. We hope to be back soon with some teaching related posts!
