I had so much fun creating these unique invitations! I put a challenge out (during one of my crops) to create something using old ribbon spools. Let me tell you – it took a long time to think up these cute ‘clovers’. My inspiration – the clover that Horton finds in ‘Horton Hears a Who’. I even included the ‘speck’ where Whoville is located (the green ball). LOL
Adhere a strip of green paper to the inner section of the spool (my strip was 1/2″ x 8″)
Cut 3, 1/2″ x 12″ strips of pink paper and adhere together to make one long 36″ strip
Using a hot glue gun, glue one end of your pink strip to the inner green section of the spool. Wined the pink paper around your spool.
Using a piercing tool, poke a hole through the strips of paper and inner spool. Poke a brad through the hole to hold the pink paper in place.
Using a hot glue gun, glue pink feather boa to the top of your spool.
Cut out alternating green and yellow paper 1/2″ x 1 1/2″
Glue paper onto a dowel (my dowel was 3/8″ x 12″)
Insert dowel into hole in spool
The time is at hand,
so an invitation to you,
for Cameron and Isaiah’s party,
soon they’ll be two!
October is the month,
24th is the day,
on Saturday from 11-2,
Oh the places they’ll go,
oh the fun things they’ll do!
They’re saving for a play structure,
good enough for a Who.
So rather than a gift,
please bring a donation in lui.”
