The first page was the intro printed out on a regular 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock. I used my paper cutter to cut the page down to a 5 x 7 size. One 1.5 inch strip of a patterned paper (from my scrapbook stash) was put along the bottom with double stick tape. An Alice in wonderland sticker, a crown and a paper crafting flower with a red velvet brad center completed the first page. So that I could maximize my sticker packet usage; all the invites featured different AinW stickers on the first page. Not one sticker in the pack went to waste.

The second page was the party basics (date, time place) printed out on regular paper and then adhered to a 5 x 7 piece of cardstock. I used a piece of red paper cut with a scallop edge to go underneath. A ruby red sticker gemstone accented the top of page two. Page three offered all the info that I felt the parents would need to know (how cold the rink would be, what to bring/wear, how long the ice skating would be, sibling policy etc).
GREEN TIP: I am not a fan of doing email invitations, although they are great for the environment, (and a wonderful timesaver). So since we did not do email invites, I "greened' (and decreased cost of) this process as much as possible by
- hand delivering the invitations that I could
- using as many scrapbooking supplies I already had in their design and execution
- Making all the invitations coordinate but NOT be identical so that no purchased paper or embellishments went to waste.
Blessings, (and don't forget I am unable to read or reply to comments until we are back from holiday in another week)...
