Try This: Hot Air Balloon Baby Shower Invitations
MATERIALS: Card Stock, Blank Cards, Craft Knife, Circle Punch, Craft Glue, Cute Fonts, Home Printer
ONE: Begin by designing a simple invitation in your word processing program that measures about 1/4″ less all the way around than your blank cards. For example, my blank cards were 4″ x 6″, so I designed an invitation 3.5″ x 5.5″. You can accomplish this by manipulating your margins in page set-up. Print them out on card stock, and cut out using scissors or a craft knife.
TWO: On the front of each blank card, either hand draw or print the basket for your hot air balloon (maybe some birds, too!). I used this little graphic that I made up (right click on the image to save if you’d like to use it, too) and fed my cards through the printer.
SIX: Glue four of the folded circles together without actually closing the sphere. See that blue one and that yellow one on each side of my big finger? Yeah, those are the ones you don’t want to glue together.
SEVEN: Remember those edges you didn’t glue together in the last step? Now put glue all over them, and affix it to the li’l basket on the front of your card. You’re done! I also took those cute fonts to the envelope by printing everyone’s names and addresses, too.
