We are planning a surprise kitchen tea for a friend at the beginning of spring. The party will be held at the Pretoria Botanical Gardens, and this invitation is just right to set the mood for such a party.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
- 8.2" x 6" light purple cardboard
- 3.4" x 5.4" brown riffled cardboard
- 3.4" x 5.4" dark purple cardboard
- one metal embossed watering can scrapbook embellishment
- 8-10 small purple paper flower scrapbook embellishments
- three material butterfly scrapbook embellishments
- pair of standard scissors
- quick-drying glue
- one A4 sheet of white paper
- one light purple envelope
- Fold the light purple cardboard in half to create a card 4.1" x 6", use the ruler to make the fold neat and smooth.
- Glue the 3.4" x 5.4" brown riffled cardboard to the front of the card, carefully ensuring that it is an equal distance from the edges.
- Now use the 3.4" x 5.4" dark purple cardboard. Leaving a space of 0.4" from the outer edges of this piece, cut out the inside so that you will have a dark purple "frame".
- "Frame" the brown riffled cardboard with the frame cut from the dark purple cardboard.
- Glue the metal embossed watering can to the front of the card.
- Use a drop of glue at the back of each flower and "arrange" the flowers on the watering can.
- Add some glue to the back of the butterflies and position them on the card.
- Print a message on the white paper, cut it to the correct size and paste it to the inside of the card.
