These bundles (which you can also get in a mega bundle if you need the blue and the pink 😉 ), contain everything you need for a Mad Hatters Party – invitations, envelopes, banners, tea bag envelopes and tags, cupcake toppers, mini food tags, thank you tags, entry tickets, glass mats, and gift bags. You can also buy the items separately too 😉 . Whilst everything comes as a jpeg or png, there are also pdf files which you basically just print, it is so easy!
I also wanted to make some cards to go with these, so used the journal cards:
I love those journal cards!
I started with the png/jpegs from the bundles and just resized each item onto a A4 file. This is the first one with the invitations on:
Then I knew I wanted to make a small banner and use some of the items for embellishments on cards, so resized them and added them to the file: And finally the journal cards, again resized to fit an A4 file:
You really need to see those cards in person to appreciate just how gorgeous they are!
All I had to do then was print everything out, cut out and assemble everything together. This is what I ended up with:
Sorry for the blurry photo of the back of the gift bag. The printable file for the gift bags is a pleasure to use as all you have to do is print, cut and adhere together. I used one of the food tags for the gift tag and just added some ribbon.
The tea bag envelopes are also on a printable file and easy to use:
They are the perfect size to hold one tea bag but you could also use it to hold small cards, sweets, drink sachets and so on. This is the reverse – pretty, isn’t it?
I then made a small card (3¾” by 3¾”) using card stock (7½” by 3¾”) which I folded in half and then added a tea doily plus one of the glass mats, resized to fit the card:
I reckon these bundles could be used to make wonderful themed party invites for children and grown-ups alike!
But you could also couple these with the journal cards too and use them for birthdays, anniversaries and all sorts. Here are the cards I made using the journal cards
The “Happy Day” in the centre of the above card was made using a Stampin’ up! stamp but you could just as easily type in any text in any font.
With the next two cards, you could use the inside for the party invite or a store gift card:
This could be a notecard or birthday or anniversary card:
And so could this:
Finally, I had some calendar tags left over from making 2016 calendars, so how about a simple desktop calendar:
All I needed for the calendar was half a sheet of A4 card stock. I then just trimmed the journal card to fit and added the calendar tag. Nothing could be simpler!
It just goes to show that a kit doesn’t have to be used for its intended purpose but can be adapted and changed to fit. Most of the kits in the store are versatile like this so why not take one of them and see what you can make? You may surprise yourself with your creativity!!! Just remember to come back and post your creations in the gallery so we can all admire them 🙂
