Brooke's Ice-Cream Themed 4th Birthday- Part One (Invitations)

My boyfriend's daughter, Brooke's, fourth birthday party was a few weekends ago, and I, trying to adjust to an insanely busy new schedule, have been lagging on blogging about it.

The ice-cream theme was a quick decision- Brooke loved the idea, I had a million ideas for it, and it wasn't going to be very expensive at all, so we decided to give it a go!

First, there was the invites...
...and of course, being the girl who can't even buy invitations from a store, I decided to make my own!

 I used some sprinkles-looking scrapbooking paper and my printer to print out the information...

...and cut it out into an ice-cream scoop shape. I used a blank card as my base, and created a fun ice-cream outline from two-scoops and a drawn-on cone.

I glued the scoops down, cut out the final ice-cream shape, and coloured the cone with coloured pencils.

Look how amazing the cones look!!

I really wish I would have gotten a full length picture of the invites, but I didn't. 

The invitations of course folded in half to fit in the envelopes, and to give them an extra punch, I wanted there to be a message on them that was to be seen as soon as the envelope was opened!

So what did I do? I dug through my craft closet and found stamps! Hand stamped invites? Awesome.

I placed the stamps, picked a colour...

...and stamped!

...and stamped again!

I adore the way they turned out, and so did Brooke!


  1. They are so cute! I wish I had the patience to DIY things like that lol. :)

    Love, Jazmyn
