Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired #47






Happy Wednesday! It's time for the weekly Cuttlebug Be Inspired #47 Challenge! This week's challenge: make an invitation! So I made a 1st birthday party for my darling, imaginary daughter named Mia! *wink* It started out as a traditional birthday party hat, but then I saw that Sassafrass paper and had to use that bunny with the name Mia (I think because I was supposed to have a 2nd grader in my class named Mia, but she withdrew and didn't come to our school after all, so I'll never know her!). I used a large silver brad for the hinge at the top, just covered it up with a corduroy button. For the inside of the invitation, I just made a textbox the approximate size of my hat in Word, then printed it out on regular copy paper. Then I used Mono temporary adhesive on the back of the hat, stuck it right over the printed words (hold it up to the light to see through and get perfect placement), and lastly, ran it through my printer again. Voila! The temporary adhesive just rubs right off the back when you're done. Lots of goodies on here: Cuttlebug, Diamond & Herringbone embossing folders, Stampin' Up! Kraft cardstock (gotta love that perfect basic!), Kiwi Kiss button, Hemp twine, & retired Tiny Talk stamp; Sassafrass Lass paper, chipboard & number 1, Making Memories green lace ribbon, and Maya Road pom poms. Be sure and check out what the other designers have created for you on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog, you won't be disappointed! I hope you'll join in this week's invitation challenge! We're celebrating our 1 year anniversary and we have lots of sponsors for a grand prize at the end of September! Go check it out!



Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
