Mad Hatter Invitations

A few months ago I received a text from my friend asking me if I could recreate this for her:


She planned on having a Mad Hatter Tea Party for her 35th birthday party and these were what she wanted.  I LOVE a crafting challenge when it comes to cards and invitations.  I couldn’t wait to get some felt and flowers and start creating.  After a few trials and LOTS of glitter I had a finished product.  Taylor even told me a few times she was making her own ‘initations’.  M’s loves pink and green so I tried to keep those colors the primary focus and then match the flowers to the envelope liner.

The hat was made using a stiff glitter felt and then I used various sizes/colors of flowers.  Since she lives in another city, I made the hat part and then she’ll print the ‘card’ with party information closer to the event.  The final product is a 5x7 size so that it fits in a standard 5x7 envelope and won’t have extra postage charges either.  I couldn’t find polka dot paper I liked, but the stripe paper fit the color scheme perfect and the even better part was that I already had it so it was FREE!  I had so much fun creating these and can’t wait until Taylor gets older and I get to make party invitations like this.  This even has me thinking of fun themes for her 3rd birthday and we have over 6 months to go.  Crazy! I can’t wait to see pictures of the rest of her party and decorations!
