I decided to try on my own to create a birthday invitation similar to the one I saw online that cost $17.00 for the template alone (then you still had to pay for printing). I think you know that I am the anti-computer literate gal, so after about two hours of Publisher I had this. It came out pretty good (I couldn't get a good shot of the invitation, so just know that it's much cuter IRL).
I had them printed because my printer just couldn't do them justice. Total cost - about $15.00 for 20 invitations. M. loved them, so it was worth it. The treat bags are coming together, but I will have to post pictures of them later because I haven't made the angry bird bags yet. But, these yummy cookies are going inside as one of the treats along with Angry Bird Silly Bandz, black barrels-o-slime, and snap-n-glow stick lollipops.
Pinterest is being a pain today, so I am unable to upload these cute babies to my party board. :o( Hope to have them pinned later. They are not quite as cute as the ones here that I was trying to copy by following her directions, but pretty darn good for a cookie novice.
That's it for now. I am soooooooo excited - it kinda seems like it's my birthday. But, I sometimes set myself up for disappointment by getting my hopes high, so I am trying to keep the whole thing in perspective (yeah, right - who am I kidding?).
Happy days and I'll check back in soon with the "finished product!"
P.S. - Finished these today!
