On Monday I introduced the Rock-A-Hula-Luau FavorCake for those outdoor Summer parties. So to continue in the luau spirit check out these colorful flip flop invitations from TopPartyIdeas.com
Here are the supplies you'll need:
Colorful grosgrain ribbon
Colored card stock in orange, hot pink, and turquoise
Lime colored envelopes
Glue (white or glue gun)
Hole puncher (single standard)
Magnetic strip tape (optional)
Step 1. Measure your envelope first then cut the turquoise card stock about 1/2″ smaller in length and width than the envelope. After that cut the orange card stock about 1/2″ smaller in length and width than the turquoise.
Step 2. Trace an outline of a flip flop on a piece of card stock. Cut out the shape using the hot pink paper. Punch a hole on the top of the flip flop. String two 2-3" pieces of ribbon through the hole and secure with glue. Secure the ends of the ribbon to each side of the flip flop at the bottom. Decorate the flip flop with your flower embellishment.
Step 3. Layer the hot pink flip flop, orange card stock, and turquoise card stock according the photo and secure each layer with glue.
Step 4. Once your design is complete you can print up the party details onto another sheet of paper or card stock and glue it to the back of your invitation.
I loved this idea so much that I used it to create a custom gift bag and a small gift sac. Both bags are a great personalized option for holding presents, treats, and party favors.
Mahalo and please join me next Friday for a new party favor craft. Have a great weekend.
