Purse Pursuit

Just a quick preview of the invitations I made for the RS Birthday Dinner in March. Our theme is Home, Family, and "Purse"onal Enrichment. It's gonna be a great night! I'm excited about getting all the details in place and these invitations will hopefully encourage more of our sisters to attend. Who can resist a cute invitation?? :)

There are actually about 20 different patterned purses and you can't see from the pictures but they each have an element of glitter in them. Ooooh... sparkly...

Cara was a great help to me. She carefully tore each sheet from the stack while I cut the paper in half. After I scored each purse Cara folded them up neatly. She attached the flowers with brads after I punched holes in the top flap and inked the edges. Finally, she helped with the ribbon cutting while I did the threading and gluing. It's so nice that she likes to help with my crafty projects. She's gonna be a little scrapper herself!!
Whew...over 80 invitations... Lots of work but SO worth the finished product!

You don't know me, but we are doing the same theme. I am making our invites also, but struggling with what to say on it. What did yours say?
Thanks for the inspiration - very cute!

Hi! I came upon your blog totally randomly but I'm so glad because I'm going to do this for our March enrichment. So I wanted to know if I could get more details and ideas from you on your program, the wording inside your invites, decorations, etc... If you get a chance, will you email me? kristofferjenson@msn.com
THANKS a TON!
