Summer Beach Party Invitation-Sandal Design

Wow!  What a busy week!  I just haven’t had a chance to sit down and blog everyday like I should!  Sorry about that…I’ll try to post a blog everyday next week, with my kids permission of course!  :)

Supply List…

Since it’s the middle of summer, I thought this homemade invitation would be a good one to showcase!  Everyone loves a good beach party!  Even if it’s just a party in your backyard with a beach theme, a fun homemade invitation is a must!!

This invitation is for an actual beach party, but it could also be used for a birthday party or any type of celebration!

The best part is, it’s really easy!!

The inspiration for this invitation came when I found the ocean waves paper.  I thought it was cute, so I found the coordinating blue cardstock and white cardstock and went to town!

I started by cutting the base white cardstock to a size of 8-1/2″x 5-1/2″.  Then I cut the ocean print to a size of 8″x 5″ to leave a 1/4″ reveal of the white cardstock.  Next I wanted a text sheet, but different than the normal square or rectangle.  So, I sat down and free-handed this sandal template.  It was actually pretty easy just using a real sandal as a guide!  Then I came up with a text layout that fit well on the sandal, and through trial and error printed them out until I got it positioned on the sandal perfect.

I wanted to give the sandal some dimension so I hole-punched a hole near the top and side of the sandal and strung a cute ribbon through and down to the sides.  I attached it on the backside with tape.  I thought this looked pretty cute and gave it more of a look of an actual sandal.

Next, I attached everything together using scrapbook mounting squares.  I could’ve been done at this point, but I decided it needed a little something more.  I found these cute stickers and thought they were perfect!

I definitely know that when the guests get these invitations, they’re going to know exactly what they’re invited to without even reading it!
