Hello everyone, it’s Eva on the blog today showing you how to create a fun interactive invite for your next event.
The Big Top Dreams collection it is perfect to create projects for kids, the designs are playful and as soon as I saw these little monkeys I knew I wanted to use them on this spinner invite.
To create this invite, cut a 3 x 3 inch card on white cardstock and a slightly smaller piece of patterned paper.
I added the “You Are Invited” phrase on the inside using my Precission Press Advanced. This tool is perfect to create lots of cards or invites and the best part is that you achieve perfect results everytime!
Next, use two concentric circles to create a “track” on the center of your card. Tip: Use washi tape to avoid the circles to move and to maintain your inner circle centered all the time.
Flip your patterned paper and add 3d foam strips on the sides and center of your paper. Make sure the foam is not very close to you track otherwise your shape will not spin.
Cut a small space on your “track” and glue your spinning design with a circle 3d foam dot. On the back use a small coin.
Turn your invite around and glue it to your cardstock base. Finally, remove the circle and the washi tape.
Because the little monkey spins all around the invite I couldn’t add too many decorations. I only added a “Step right up” sentiment that you can find in the Sticker Book, it was the perfect touch!
Here you can see the spinner invite in action. I kept the original audio so you can hear how the monkey moves all around the card.
I am sure kids are going to love the invites! And you can personalized them with other designs or shapes! Thanks for joining me and I hope you give these invites a try!
Have a great day!
