Quickie Invitations

I picked up these pre-made painted wooden pieces at Michael's the other day with the intent to use them as birthday invitations. They turned out pretty cute!I printed out the "invitation" and then cut the puff of engine smoke free-hand. I doodled around the edges and attached the paper to the back of the wooden piece with red-line tape. I folded it for it to fit into the envelopes...
And the other one I used was simple too. I tied string on the back of an airplane to simulate a banner. I simply printed out the party info on a sheet of ledger paper and cut them into strips. Super easy, quick and inexpensive too! The wooden pieces were a quarter each...
If you have any fun invitation ideas, please send them my way! I'd love to share them...

For you local folks, a couple of announcements...
