Since this past summer, I’ve really dived into DIY/crafting projects. Scrapbooking used to be as crafty as I got, but ever since I’ve been blogging, following blogs, and just “googling” before I jump and purchase something, I have seen how easy and fun it can be to make creations on my own.
*Adhere a small circle to the back of the larger circle, so its “head” is sticking out.
*Snip two petals off of the flower, and adhere those to the same side as the head. These will be the feet.
*Cut two strips of paper and adhere them to the head, so they stick up like antennaes. In this step, you can also add the small punched circles for the top of the antennae.
*Your layers should be this: body circle, head circle, antennae/feet, head circle, body circle.
*For an added touch, add some smaller punched circle to the body and write a number 2 on them, for the ladybug’s dots.
*On the back of the invitation, write all your party information.
*Are you going to mail these? You can find unconventional shaped envelopes at Office Max and other stores like that.
After the circles were cut, it was just a matter of assembling them and writing the details. It really didn’t take me long at all.
I think you could use this basic template/pattern to make other animals like a turtle, dog, or cat. It was a fun project, and went quickly after I had analyzed the layout and how I wanted it to look.
Do you do any paper crafting? If you’re not “crafty”, this might be a great place to start!
