Sleeping Bag Invitations

Hi, crafters... remember me?  Once upon a time I started this lovely meme... and then my life got crazy, and now I rarely have time to craft anything anymore.  Lucky for us, the always-creative Christine stepped up and has kept the meme going, providing fun challenges and a place to share each and every Sunday at Sunday Scrappin'. I am so happy that she did!  :)

I was recently going through pictures on my computer... side note: sorting those is a huge project that I need to tackle soon.  Anyways, I realized that I do have a few crafty projects that I've never shared, so here I am.

These are the invitations I designed for my daughter's slumber party back in April.  These were simply double-sided card stock, stickers, and text printed within shapes that I created with the PrintShop program on my computer.  I folded the cardstock in half, rounding the corners, and then cut a slit on the folded side to bend down for the top of the sleeping bag.  I made sure the sleeping bags were the right size to fit into a business envelope.  We added the flip flop stickers, heart stickers (on the pj leg), and a small square of felt for the pillow. 

My daughter helped put them together, and she loved them. Her favorite part was the little glow-in-the-dark teddy bear stickers we found to put on the felt pillows.  We loved how they turned out!

Update 7/12: I'm also linking up to Made by You Monday @ Skip to my Lou .... mostly because I did a lot of online searches when I started this project.  Hopefully these invitations might inspire someone else!

  1. Those are REALLY cute!!! I wish I had more time for scrapbooking. I have done more for other ppl than I have myself. My poor kids :(

  2. This is super cute! Would you happen to still have the clip art in your file?

  3. A belated reply to Jane... I didn't use clip art, just the "text in shape" feature on Print Shop. The shapes were built in to the program- you just add text and resize as needed.
