DIY Carnival Invites

Happy Queen’s Day everyone! And a Happy Monday of course! This week it’s going to be about R&B’s projects for the first quarter of 2011. I haven’t really had the time to compile everything so having this Monday off is just perfect timing.

First off, we had the honor of hosting a Mardi Gras/Carnival-themed 18th birthday at Fiamma Bar last January. Remember this mood board I posted before? Well, we had put out these multicolored invites for all of her guests.

Pretty colors, don’t you think? The concept is somewhat like an enlarged admit one ticket.

The envelopes are like vintage popcorn bags. I wasn’t able to find the red & white stripes so I just settled for the white one. At least it shows off the color of the invite from the inside.

Here’s what you need to create these festive invites:

– Multicolored/Metallic boards
– Vellum paper (for the envelopes)
– Scissors/Paper cutter
– Printer
– Gold strings (for the tag)

Oh, how can I forget about the fonts! I chose mine from Magic Jelly’s collection of her favorites carnival fonts here. The best about it is some of them are free from Enjoy!

More photos to come, so stay tuned this week!
