Teacup Invites

Do you ever have noncrafty friends asking for some crafty help? My best girlfriend claims to be the least creative person on the planet. So when she asked for me to help make her daughter's birthday invites the same weekend I'm on strict orders to keep my feet up, I found the perfect opportunity to torture her a bit. Sure. Come over. We'll make invites. But you're doing most of the work darlin', 'cause I can't. Oh what fun to watch her squirm and order her around a bit:). And of course, watch the look of amazement on her face when she's introduced to dies with matching stamps and a Silhouette machine.

There's a local place called Sunflower Studios where she's having the party. It's a pottery studio/tea house. Blue teacups and sunflowers match their logo. No other inspiration was needed for the invites. Like shooting fish out of a barrel.

Got paper on sale. We made 10 invites for least than three dollars. Ah, the beauty of papercrafting. I might just bring her over the dark side yet.
