Birthday Invitations and Favors

We have a big birthday coming in our household this month so I have been working on invitations and favors.  This year we are doing a swimming/slumber party.  There are going to be 5 girls which makes it easier than when we invited the whole class!  

My invites fell right in line with this weeks Papertrey Ink MIM so I am going to play along.I love Erin's tutorial.  I print a lot of my sentiments but usually hold them up to the light and eyeball where the die should go.  I think this technique will be more efficient!!

The background and flip flops are from SU Sparkling Summer.

I added the glitter strip as an after thought.

Since we are going swimming, we decided to decorate flip flops for party favors.  The girls told us their favorite color and shoe size so we could individualize them.

We are really happy with how these turned out.  And, I am thankful that Sophie has nimble fingers and could turn all the rhinestones over for me to glue on!

For the favor bags we are using a cute reusable tote bag filled with the decorated flip flops, Emery boards, snacks, and magazines.  (I did get talked into some Teen Bop but I'm trying to balance it out with Discovery Girls). 

Thanks for stopping by ~

Very clever to use the zipper as an invite. Love those flip flops. Looks like it is going to be a great party.
