DIY {Do It Yourself Friday} Sarah’s Birthday Invitations

Good morning Evy’s Tree readers! This is Sarah again. Happy Friday to you all! This week on DIY {Do It Yourself} Friday I’m going to show you how I made the invites to my recent Birthday Party. Did you see last weeks post ? I showed you how I made my Birthday Bunting. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.  ;)
Here is my finished invite that I will show you how to make! I just loved how they turned out. Who doesn’t go gaga for ruffles? {Not me!}

What you will need:
1. Paper of choice 
2. Tissue paper
3. Scissors
4. Sewing machine
5. Small flower or jewel

STEP ONE: Get together your paper {I went to Joanne’s and bought 12×12 scrapbooking paper} and scissors. Cut out the size cards you want. I cut 5×7 cards. 
You should now have your cards cut out!

STEP TWO: Print your invitations.

STEP THREE: Take your tissue paper and cute into about 2 inch strips. Now accordion-style fold it all the way down. 
You should now have this… Your “ruffle”.

STEP FOUR: Cut sides of “ruffle” down to the size you want. I did about 1.5 inches. You don’t want your ruffle to be too big as it would take over your invite! Lay out your ruffle on your invite to eyeball how big it should be. Now sew your ruffle onto your invitation. 

STEP FIVE: All you have to do now is place a small flower, gem or whatever creative thing you can think of on the bottom of your ruffle. 
STEP SIX: Relax, you just made a beautiful invitation! Congrats!
Until Next Week, 

P.S. The winner of the Birthday Bunting??

YAY!! This is my good friend Jenni, who I LOVE!! Jenni, we’re sending your bunting. :) Thanks everyone for entering!

    One of the biggest problems in planning this type of event is always the expectation by the birthday person. They probably know you have something planned that makes it more difficult to surprise them. Throwing the person off guard becomes very important if you want your Birthday Party to be a success. For example,nike tn pas cher, try throwing the party a weekend prior to the birthday before he or she begins to suspect anything. Another idea is to have a small family party on the day of or the day before the person’s birthday then they won’t be as likely to suspect a second event. ‘
