Birthday Party Planning – Paper Items

Once I had my inspiration board I started playing in Photoshop Elements to design the invitation. I was so happy with my finished design.  I printed them from MPix Press and loved the finished product!

The back of the invitation had the time, date, etc.  I love that MPix lets you print on the front and back.
Once I had the invitation I started building paper products around it. I created toppers for the cookie bags that were going in the favors:
Stickers for the favor boxes
And drink labels
I love that little elephant! And the best thing about him is that he’s a stock cut out shape that’s already in Photoshop and so all I had to do was cut one out of a digital scrapbook paper and then use him on whatever I wanted.  For most of these items I used digital scrapbook items that I got from my two favorite online stores — Peppermint Creative and The Shabby Shoppe.
Also, a few months ago I won a giveaway from The Purple Pug on The Birthday Girl’s blog.  Kristy had a pink elephant design already and so I asked her to create some items for Charlotte’s party.  I used them throughout the party to add a little more elephant punch!
Coming up next….the rest of the party as a whole! 🙂
