I made this simple Invite to send out to Putti's friends for her Butterfly themed 5th birthday party.Butterfly Party board. For the evites I really wanted to try this creative sidewalk drawings that I have seen all over pinterest lately. This butterfly idea came from Harding Keepsakes.
One fine evening, myself, Putti and her friend got busy drawing a big beautiful butterfly on our drive way. I first made Putti lay down and then drew an outline of the wings centered around her body. Then she got off and I drew more details to the wings, which the girls colored in.
Later on, I got on a high stool and the kids took turns lying down in center of the butterfly wings. We got some pretty pictures!
I then selected a couple of Putti's pictures and using my limited photoshop skills made the evite as seen above. Putti actually wanted 5 pictures of her, but I thought that would be over crowding. I did made a number 5 filled with lots of butterflies, which she loved.
And then on evite website, I found this really cool chalk template. But both Putti and her daddy did not like this one much. I did save it though.
And this time, Putti wanted to invite her preschool friends. This is her last year in preschool, she will will be starting kindergarten next year - sigh! We had to send physical invites for her school friends. I wanted to make these really cute butterfly invites. But as we all fell sick for weeks before her birthday, I settled in for these invites from Oriental Trading Co.
