The invitations are being delivered today.It's an intimate get-together with 10 special girlfriends,
it started when our kiddos were toddlers,
the oldest of our group just turned 16...boo hoo!
Gift Exchange & Stealing,
After Dinner Coffees & Dessert
They all politely play along with my rule ~ a 'theme' for the gift exchange and the
anticipation they'll think outside the box, and bring something wildly creative.
They do not disappoint!!
I try to come up with an invitation to introduce our theme...
Pages from an old dictionary were the inspiration for the invite this year.
Since there are 2,408 pages, I didn't think anyone would miss a few.
~ Cut the pages into 2 x 3 inch pieces (16 per invitation)
~ Form them into cones, use a glue gun to secure.
~ Attach 16 cones to a 4 inch circle using your glue gun
~ For a bow cut 2 slits in the center of the circle, thread your ribbon
through to the front and tie. I chose a pale shimmery satin.
~ Print your party details on cardstock and glue below the bow
What clever gift would you show up with?
