I have been on a roll with invitations lately! I have to say, I really enjoy paper crafts like this. Recently, I made a clam shell for a Little Mermaid Party and a Rapunzel Tower invite with yarn hair for a Tangled themed party. This time, I am helping my best friend with her oldest daughters Breakfast at Tiffany’s birthday party (her name is Tiffany too!). Here is how I made Breakfast at Tiffany’s DIY Invitations.
- Blue Card Stock
- Black and White Patterned Card Stock
- White Card Stock
- Glue Stick
- White Ribbon
- Paper Cutter
- Adhesive Gems
To prepare my little assembly line, I cut 5” X 7” pieces for the main backing and 3” X 5” pieces of black and white paper and 6” white ribbon. I designed the invitation, printed them on white card stock and cut them out at 4.25” X 6.25” (approximate).
I used a glue stick to assemble them.
I also tied the ribbons in knots and put a little gem on each side.
My friend looked online for Breakfast at Tiffany’s DIY Invitations for inspiration and she loved the wording on this one.
So, on her invitation I wrote:
You are cordially invited to a birthday party honoring the fabulous…
In the true spirit of Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Will you please wear your best
Little Black dress?
Don’t forget your Fabulous pearls,
Divine sparkles, and
Gorgeous costume jewelry!
I loved the end result.
I was so inspired that I also made…
… a drink menu including, Wonderful Water, Magnificent Milk, and Sparkling Apple Cider…
… some food labels including Picture Perfect Pancakes, Wonderful Waffles, Divine Donuts, Delish Bacon, Marvelous Mini Muffins, Fabulous Mini Bagels, and Yummy Yogurt and…
… some special gift wrapping for the birthday girl too!
