Recycled Birthday Party Invites

As you have read, my daughter who turns 8 next week is  having a "Recycled Art" birthday party...combining the two things she is very passionate about.  So you've seen a hint of the banner...more on that later, but here is a little mini tutorial for her invitations.  They are VERY easy (which is best right, when making a lot of invitations)...so here we go...

First gather your supplies...
*Strips of newspaper measuring a little less than 1 x 5.5 inches.

*Fused plastic bags (see tutorial here),cut into the appropriate number

*5.5 x 8.5 rectangles of heavy white cardstock

-->on a side note, wow.. my cutting mat has seen better days :)
Score your card and fold in half.

Apply a little glue or tape to the center of 4 strips of newspaper and arrange on your card. 

Using your sewing machine (or by hand) stitch close to the edges of each strip of paper.  Trim strings.

Use glue dots to stick your fused plastic number to the corner.  See...easy :) 

I stamped mine inside so it was ready to fill with party details.

She loves them...what do you think?

Prefect!!! Is there such a thing as too talented? Because if there is you are the example of it! Keep up the good work.

What a charming birthday card, with that special 8 on it. And what a special birthday. I bet the party was great. You are one clever sewer.
