For today's project, I'm sharing my daughter's birthday party invitation. Victoria just turned 5 last March but the weather here in Atlanta has been a little crazy this last months, so I decided to wait a little and push her birthday party for April. She is obsessed with Moana and of course wanted a Moana theme party. I figure a Moana Luau would be a great idea, so the crafter in me got to work and created the invitation. Now, if you know me you will know I never make flat invitations. For some reason, invitations have always been something I love to do, I feel like a party invitation give an idea of what the party will be like and what to expect. For this reason, every year I try to create a new way to deliver the party information in a very unique way.
The invitation is shaped as a "drum", if you have seen the movie you know that Moana has to bang the drum in order to get the message from her ancestors. I started by using the amazing "Bundle of Love" designer series paper, this paper is so beautiful and elegant, it can be use for many different occasions. I cut my paper into 7.5 x 4 inches rectangles and with the help of the "gift bag punch board" I punch along the long side to create little tabs for the base of my "drum". I glue this together using the "multipurpose liquid glue" and placed a 1 1/4" very vanilla circle at the bottom.
I used the large circle in the "Layering Circle Framelits" to cut a piece of fabric and use it as the top of my drum. Did you know you could cut up to 4/5 pieces of fabric at once? I decorated the top of the drum with some heat transfer vinyl and glue it all together using "tear and tape".
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back soon!
