Why not start the week and the new season with a half-moon invitation tutorial?
1. you need 1 solid 12 x 12 card stock ( yellow), a 2 in. strip of p.p ( American Crafts), some solid color card stock (green) and some white paper ( to print your invitation) and your basic material:
2. The half moon is done by punching half of a circle (with the 1 3/8 in" punch) into the folded yellow card stock then you can adhere the 2 edges to create a pocket:
3.Take your 2 in x 8 1/2 in of p.p and with a bone folder make a crease at 2 1/4 in from each extremity then with your x-acto knife cut 2 small incisions around the crease to thread the ribbon like this:
4. The finished card is 4 x 6, so the idea is to cut the green paper a little bit smaller than the yellow and then same idea for the white piece (smaller than the green). I highly recommend printing or stamping your words onto the white paper before cutting it.Here is the assembled invitation:
5. Let's add a little sweetness to this invitation shall we?
This little cupcake is almost as sweet and gratifying as your comments.
