Graduation Party Invitations

I promised to catch up and here's my first effort.  I went back to edit photos of the graduation invitation that I made.  These were relatively simple when I used my MISTI stamping tool and the computer.

The sentiment is stamp from Hobby Lobby.  I had to remove it from the wood block to use in on my MISTI tool, but once placed I was able to stamp out 35 of these invitations to send to family and friends.  The card fold is easy.  I followed the tutorial provided here.  The tassel was made from some glittery crochet thread I picked up at Hobby Lobby.

I am so pleased with how these turned out.  I received lots of compliments.  Luckily, one of the guests used the invitation as a wrapping decoration, so I received one back.  I'm thinking of including this in Tim's scrapbook of the event.  I planned some fun activities for the party.  I'll post photos of that as well.  Thanks for stopping by.

I'm going to enter this into a couple of challenges.  Come join the fun!
