Wizard of Oz Invitations






As you know I shared that this past week most of my time was spent creating invitations for a client throwing her daughter a Wizard of Oz party for her 2nd birthday. Below are a few photos of part (yes, only part of the whole invitation) of what is going to be used for the invitations. I created glittered red slippers with a blue gingham insert and then rolled the invitation and tied it with a bow. She then is going to put theses slippers in a yellow box with hay. I created a cute matching tag for the top of the box that will then be tied with a yellow bow. These are then going to be hand delivered. If you want to make these yourself I am attaching a link below for you to find a template. I do want to warn as I always try to do...I would not suggest these for a large party. I only say that because I made 60 of these and they took at least 30-40 minutes each, probably more if you count touch ups etc. Also, I used glitter paper and a gingham insert so I had over $2.50 in paper per shoe. One tip: It has faster to glue the blue gingham and red glitter paper together and then cut the shoe out. On the link it gives you two seperate templates, one for the shoe and one for the insert but trust me on this just glue the paper together and then cut the shoe out.

Would you make these for a Habitat for Humanity event for us? If so please email me at vanderbilts@comcast.net! Thanks, Stephanie

These are gorgeous, and you're SO creative! LOVE! I'm going to say this only because I'd be shocked if another client didn't ask for these - so just in case you ever make them again, it's click your 'heels'. Not 'heals'.
