Art Party Invitations: The Art Palette

As for any good party, first come cute invitations!
My inspiration for this party came from the adorable Little Picasso Art Party from Cutest Little Things.  She did a great job with his party and had so many fun details! I especially loved the Art Palette cookies (totally wish that I had time to make those!!) and the canvas idea. After seeing her canvas “instructions”, I thought- wouldn’t that be a great invitation??

Handprint Canvas instructions from Cutest Little Things

So I set out to make an invitation with that inspiration. Since I have a Cricut, I always look for a cartridge first that has a cutout that I need in an attempt to make my life easier. A search had also led to {THIS} discussion forum where other Cricut users were looking for the same thing to make artist palette invitations. There were a few good suggestions on there (such as the Locker Talk cartridge), but I didn’t want to pay that much for a cartridge that I would only use once.  So I decided to hand-draw my own!
Skill Level: Beginnger
Supplies Needed:
  • Scissors
  • Brown Textured Cardstock paper in large 12 x 12 sheets-
  • Multi-colored card stock in 8 1/2″ by 11″ sheets
  • Printer
Begin by free handing an art palette template shape. Use this template to cut out the needed amount of invitations.
Using a computer and printer, type out the words that you want on the invitation. Print them out on varying colors of cardstock.
Use craft scissors to cut out the words, making them look like blobs of paint.
Glue the “paint” to the art palette.
Address the envelopes and mail!! :)

      @Peas and Thank Yous, I am actually shocked by your comment and your thought that no two people could possibly come up with the same idea or concept independently without having “copied” someone. In this case, my mom actually made invitations like these for my 10th birthday party … over 30 years ago! So I guess I could say that you copied her. I am so sick of reading mean-spirited comments on people’s blogs.
