DIY art party birthday invitations tutorialThese are incredibly easy to make if you have a template for my free cut file. Let's walk through the steps...
- Determine the size you want to cut your invitations and then you can either print your party details on the cardstock before you run it through your die cut machine or leave enough space to add the party details later, like I did. I was able to cut two at a time from one 8.5" x 11" cardstock paper.
- Cut the painter's pallet from the cardstock. Make sure you measure and line your cut file up so it cuts around your party details where you want it to cut. NOTE: I included cut lines so you could insert a paint brush so keep that in mind when you are printing and cutting.
- Cut the paint pieces from your patterned paper or colored cardstock. Adhere them around the edge and around your party details.
- Insert a toy paint brush and deliver to friends. By the way, I found a package of 30 paint brushes in the party section of my local hobby store. Great buy with coupon!
