Tea Party Invitations

There’s tired and then there is “incapable-of-operating-heavy-machinery” tired. I ran a red light tonight on the way to Harris Teeter, and when it occurred to me in mid-intersection what I had done, what did I do? I came to a screeching halt. So, I promptly came home and restricted myself to using beginner scissors to finish Mia’s tea party invitations which proved to be safer and much more productive. I was inspired when I saw these invitations from Happy Hound Creative’s Etsy shop

… and I thought, “hey, I can do that.”

So I did…

First, I rounded up some supplies…

… which were quite literally just lying around.

I threaded some ribbon through my favorite tea bags.

Then I created a tea cup stencil and glued two pieces of colored card stock together leaving room for a pouch at the top to house the tea bag. I then added my tea party invite script and some tea/dress-up party scrapbooking embellishments, and voila!

Now, you know I love you, but I wasn’t about to post my address and phone, hence the wine cork magnet.

Seriously, I spent most of my own birthday getting more excited about Mia’s upcoming celebration!

Like I said… I LOVE BIRTHDAYS!!!!
