We talked about what kind of party he might want and we ended up with a party at Chipmunks. We've never done one of these before so it should be interesting.
He had a choice of a chipmunk party or a pirate party theme and went with the pirate theme.
Then it came time to decide about the invites. We'd done pirate before and I wasn't sure about the chipmunk side of things, then Andy said what about Angry Birds?
Well, that was it. Angry birds it was!
So Dan is having a pirate themed party at Chipmunks with Angry Birds invites and cake. LOL!
I made the invites last night with the help from this website. I used their Angry Birds balloon faces, but shrunk down to fit on the card. It came together really easily. I think I made about 12-13 in an hour maybe?
First I cut a base card into a circle using my Spellbinders dies. Then I cut a second circle the same size in black card to go on the front of the card.
Then I cut a third circle out of the grey card, which I then cut into two smaller half circles to go on the bottom of the birds (as their chest).
Then I just cut the eyes and beak from The Party Animal blog and stuck it all together.
Inside I used a Fiskars stamp set which has 'to / from / place / date / rsvp' and then I got Dan to write the childs name and his name and I filled in the rest.
As far as invites go, this was a very quick and totally effective one! Even if I say so myself, I love them!
Now we just need to work on the cake. There are a couple I LOVE which will be relatively easy to pull off, but Dan really wants the 'playable' version we've seen around the web. Only problem with that one is that we won't be able to move it. And I can't see me putting it together at Chipmunks. So wish us luck on that one!
