Maddy celebrated her third birthday in style this weekend. We took a page from Alice In Wonderland and decided to have a Very Merry Unbirthday Party. I am very proud of how her party came together…especially since the inspiration really didn’t start flowing for a while, but also since a great deal of it was handmade.
It all started with the invitations. Being the type of person who would prefer ease I combed the Internet and could not find anything cute that did not cost five dollars an invitation. I did a freehand drawing of the Disney Mad Hatter’s hat on some cardstock and then with my iphone matched the colors in cardstock at Hobby Lobby. I then added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Distress Stickles and it quickly became an invitation worthy of a Mad Tea Party. Total Cost for twenty invitations, including the “You’re Invited” stamp on the back of the invitations was $20.00 for twenty-five.
This isn’t the best photo, but at least you can see the back of the invite.
I hope that you will stick with me this week because I have lots more to share about this birthday bash!
