Eyeball Board + Monster Party Invites

One thing that I didn’t get a picture of at Karsyn’s Monster Party, was of this cute board. It was displayed on the same table as the cupcake cakes.

I got this board from Finger Snapper a LONG time ago. They are having the deal again right now, so click here to get it.

I didn’t take a picture of each step because I made it before I had a blog, but I’ll tell ya what I did.

First of all, I bought the paints at Wal-Mart for .97! SCORE! I love how inexpensive paint is. I knew his colors were going to be orange, blue, and green, so I painted each square a different color. Then the empty one black. I knew I was going to mod-podge a picture of him on it, once I got them done.

It looked cute with just plain paint, but I wanted something more, so I found one of my polka dot stencils and did a different color on each square. It was still cute, but kinda boring. I had a bag of googly eyes laying around, so I added one to each of the bigger circles. And wa-la!

Oh, I forgot to add that I painted around the outside AND inside edges black. And it’s okay if the black gets on your squares. (:

And I never did do a post on the invites that I made..

I had always planned to make them myself with paper and cut-outs and stamps and all of the above, but my creative juices were NOT flowing and I was getting really, super frustrated, so I just went into PicMonkey and made the invites.

Here’s a quick run-down of how I did them..

Click “Create a Collage”. Then click the middle button {on the left hand side} and it will give you a bunch of different layout options. I clicked the Pinter-etsy tab and chose the third one in. Then I saved it and went back to the main screen for just the basic editing. From there I added the words and shapes in each box. The colors I used were supposed to be a LOT brighter, but they never print out the way they look on screen. ):

They were still cute.

Then I stuffed them inside the envelopes, along with this picture…

He’s so cute!

Have you ever bought anything from Finger Snapper? Have you used PicMonkey to create anything before?

Monster Party Invite Envelopes

I have been working my little bum off lately trying to get all the stuff done for Karsyn’s birthday party!

I will be showing you what I have done, one by one!

Today, I am showing you my simple and easy invite envelopes.

I just bought the envelopes at Wal-Mart. They come in a box of 50 for like $5. They are the invitation size; the ones just a little bigger than 4×6. They worked perfect because I included a 4×6 photo of Karsyn.

This one… (:
His party theme is MONSTER!! I seriously love all this stuff. I am having a really fun time planning it and making the stuff, but it is stressful.

So I borrowed the Monster Stampin’ Up! stamp set from one of my friend’s mom. {Thanks Michelle!!}

I was originally going to use them to make the actual invites, but it was taking a toll on my brain and sanity, so I just stamped them on the envelopes.

The colors of the party are BRIGHT green, BRIGHT orange, and BRIGHT blue! So I used some green and blue ink for the bodies and just black for the eyes.

I used these two monsters, but I used a bunch of different eyes and mouths.

I think they turned out super cute! They added a fun little sneak peek of what was inside! (:

So there you have it. Some SUPER cute and super easy Monster Party Invite Envelopes!

Have you ever held a Monster party?!
