My boyfriend's daughter, Brooke's, fourth birthday party was a few weekends ago, and I, trying to adjust to an insanely busy new schedule, have been lagging on blogging about it.
The ice-cream theme was a quick decision- Brooke loved the idea, I had a million ideas for it, and it wasn't going to be very expensive at all, so we decided to give it a go!
First, there was the invites...
...and of course, being the girl who can't even buy invitations from a store, I decided to make my own!
I used some sprinkles-looking scrapbooking paper and my printer to print out the information...
...and cut it out into an ice-cream scoop shape. I used a blank card as my base, and created a fun ice-cream outline from two-scoops and a drawn-on cone.
I glued the scoops down, cut out the final ice-cream shape, and coloured the cone with coloured pencils.
Look how amazing the cones look!!
I really wish I would have gotten a full length picture of the invites, but I didn't.
The invitations of course folded in half to fit in the envelopes, and to give them an extra punch, I wanted there to be a message on them that was to be seen as soon as the envelope was opened!
So what did I do? I dug through my craft closet and found stamps! Hand stamped invites? Awesome.
I placed the stamps, picked a colour...
...and stamped again!
I adore the way they turned out, and so did Brooke!
