I Need More... Disney [Hot Dog! Mickey Mouse Invitations]


After tossing around birthday themes for quite some time, my 2 year old daughter finally settled on Mickey Mouse. Let the party planning begin! And by begin, I mean I'd better get some invitations made and out or this is going to be one lame party...
MICKEY INVITATION POCKET:


1) Basic Mickey Mouse silhouette designed in Adobe Illustrator and saved as an SVG. (This SVG can be cut by the Sure Cuts A Lot program that allows you to cut your own designs and fonts with the Cricut.)


2) Mickey shape cut in both black and red cardstock. The red Mickey is cut in half to create the front of the pocket to hold the actual invitation. A simple stitch on the sewing machine holds the two pieces together.

3) A couple of glue dots hold the buttons in place.

INVITATION:

1) Again, designed in Adobe Illustrator using the Walt Disney handwriting font for titles. Printed on white cardstock.

2) Stapled a short length of ribbon to the invitation for a little color.

3) Folded in thirds and inserted into the Mickey pocket. The whole thing measures about 4x5-inches to fit nicely into an A-6 envelope.

Just one question. When you sewed together the two pieces of paper did you use an adhesive? crystal.caldwell@att.net
