Lego Party Invitations

If you follow me on Instagram you know that my son is obsessed with Legos. He builds for hours and when he is not building, he's talking about what kits he wants next. His room has a bout 23,478 legos all over the floor at any given time. So it was no big surprise that when we started talking about his birthday party he decided he wanted a Lego Party!! I was pretty excited too because I love to plan parties. Every year I tell myself...simple Awbree. But then I get excited and do too much. But I like too and I enjoy it.

We are having a very small party. Our house is small and Austin does better with small groups. Since I only had to make a handful of invitations I decided to make them by hand. And since 80% of the time I'm thinking about Project Life, I thought it would be fun to use Project Life cards to make the invites!!

I used a 4x6 textured white PL card as the bottom layer. Then I adhered a black and white striped 3x4 card from the Midnight Edition to the left side. I typed up the party details on my computer and printed them on white card stock. I simply cut it out and adhered it onto the right side of the card. I left a blank space to fit the "6" stickers, which are from a pack of alpha stickers made by Simple Stories. Last, I printed some small Lego men in black onto white card stock. I cut them out (by hand) using THESE awesome scissors. I adhered the Lego guy right onto the striped card. I use THIS adhesive for all my PL/crafty needs. I had some left over black envelopes from a few Halloween's ago so that matched perfectly. I used a white gel pen to write the names and addresses on each envelope. I love how they turned out. It feels good to use what I had and create something I adore while spending no money! Awesome.

I'll share more party details after the party in a few weeks!
