Little Claire's Weekly Project...Party Invite

Hello Crafters
Its Gemma here, it's my turn for the Little Claire's weekly project so i have a cute little party invite for you and it's a girly one too so without further ado, here's the little cutie...hope you likey!!


Little Claire's: Loverly Jubblies 'Daisy Bunting' stamp
Spellbinders: Scalloped and plain square nesties {i have used the largest in the set}
Spellbinders: Scalloped and plain cirlce nesties {i have used the second largest in the set}
Joy Craft: Flower die
Xcut: Decorative tags
Backing papers {of your choice}
Coloured card {of your choice}
White card
Ribbon {of your choice}

As you can see in the picture above i have already got my piece's cut out already so it's the case of putting it all together, here's the step by step of how to make it...

1) Attach your choice of ribbon to the large scalloped square with extra tacky tape.
Tip: To make sure it is central i have used the scallops as a guide so make sure there are equal amount of scallops at either side of the ribbon.

2) Stamp your image on to your white circle and then colour parts of the image you aren't paper piecing. Next attach your white stamped circle on to your coloured scalloped circle.
3) Stamp your image again on to your choice of backing, ready for paper piecing.

4) For the paper piecing...cut your chosen parts out of your chosen paper. I have cut out the bunting, balloon and her dress which can be a bit fiddly but i managed it.

5) Now attach your finished image to the scalloped square like in the photo above. On the back on the invite i attached a white square and this is where you add all the details of your party.
6) The next part is the fun part and that's to add all the pretty embellishments to your party invitation like the photo above.
There you have it your cute little party invite...hope you like this tutorial and found it easy to follow, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to leave a comment below and i will get back  you :)
