It might not be that interesting to anyone else, but it’s a milestone to Mummy. Isabella will be one in less than a month, and I wanted to have a little party for her (or is that for me?).
I’ve been glued to Pinterest for about six months now, and saw a similar balloon invitation on there (if you haven’t already seen Pinterest, go now. It’s very pretty and very addictive). I adapted it with the things I already had, like the envelopes and the punches, and decided on lemon yellow as it’s a very spring colour that makes me think of fluffy chicks and Easter.
To make the address labels and the balloon sticker on the back of the envelope, I printed out the circles (I designed them in Photoshop, you could do the same in any design program. It took a bit of trial and error to get the size right) onto printable labels from Staples, then cut them out with the scalloped circle punch. The balloon was free clipart, cut out using the smaller punch.
