0 Comments

Kid's Tea Party Invitation


Materials

  • Downloadable pfd pattern for teapot
  • Solid Color Card Stock: 9 letter size sheets
  • Patterned Paper: 6 letter size sheets
  • Vellum Paper: 3 sheets letter size
  • Envelopes to fit 7 x 7 tea pot: 12
  • Adhesive Glue Roller Applicator
  • Scissors
  • X-Acto Blade to cut tea pot inside handle
  • decorative embellishments

Invitation Layout

Layout your invitation in your layout program. You can fit 4 per letter size paper.
The size of the invitation is 3x 3¾. The text area is approximately 2¾ x 3

  1. Draw a box 3w x 3¾ h
    tip: The box lines should be faint so that you can see them just enough to cut, but won’t be too noticeable if some of the line shows after cutting.
  2. Start your text about ½ from the top to leave room for the lid which will cover that area
    Hint: Leave space on the sides, you don’t want to accidentally cut any text off.
  3. Once you have your invitation just right, Copy and Paste so that you have 4 invitations on your page.
  4. Print on vellum paper.

Cutting

  1. Cut 4 templates:
    tea pot front (cut along the dotted line)
    teapot back (do not cut along the dotted line)
    lid
    invitation back
    (You won’t be making a template for the invitation front piece because you printed it directly on the vellum.)
    Tip: Use an X-Acto blade to cut the inside of the tea pot handle
  2. Trace templates on to back side of paper
    2 tea pot fronts and 2 tea pot lids per patterned paper
    2 tea pot backs per solid paper
    4 invitation backs per solid paper
    4 invitation fronts per vellum paper
  3. Cut all pieces.

Assembly

Invitation

  1. One line of glue on top of vellum invitation front, line up and attach to invitation back
  2. Glue lid to invitation back placing over the invitation front

Tea Pot

  1. Glue only edges of front to the back leaving space in the center for the invitation to slide in and out.

Finishing

  1. Slide invitation into the tea pot and leave as is or finish with a pretty embellishment.
