Yay! I’m so excited to be here with you today… my name is Jen Carreiro and I write a super crafty wedding blog called SomethingTurquoise.com. I am a very proud new member of the new Lifestyle Studio Design Teams… I’m on the wedding team of course! I started my blog early in 2011 and over that time I have shared over 140 DIY tutorials specifically for weddings, over 150 real weddings, lots of inspiration, etiquette tips and much, much more. Stop by today to check me out… and tell all your aisle bound friends how much fun my site is! I’m thrilled to be able to share our latest DIY tutorial with you today, how to make these super fun and totally silly ‘bachelor party invitations’… with FREE design downloads… we are sure that these will have your groom and all his friends chuckling at the sight of them! Happy Crafting!
We LOVE our guys, right!?! So why should us girls have all the cute ‘Pinterest’ type fun with invites, will you be my bridesmaids, and bachelorette party goodies? Today’s project is for the BOYS! A fun and silly tutorial for a touching ‘bachelor party invitation’… guys will always be excited to party, but we think this will get them cracking up!
- Lifestyle Crafts Evolution Machine
- Lifestyle Crafts ‘mini-pizza box‘ die cut template
- your choice of cardstock (cut to 6″ wide and at least 10″ long)
- FREE design download below
- 8.5″ x 11″ text weight paper for design printout
- Krylon Metallic Spray paint in Silver
- manly-looking washi tape
- scrapbooking adhesive
- silly boy toys and maybe headache medicine… maybe a bottle opener… the gifts that you put in your bachelor invites will depend on what type of guy you have!
Dress up the usual silly boy toys with a coat of Krylon metallic silver paint (front and back), we think it makes them look more grown up! **After these have been painted, and you see them sitting on the dresser or counter – they look like they are made of stainless steel – it’s awesome!
While the paint on the toys is drying you can cut out your fun mini-pizza boxes! Perfectly appropriate for a bachelor party invitation… place the pizza box cutting template onto the die cut platform for the Evolution machine. Place your paper (6″ x at least 10″), design face down over the cutting template, then cover with the platform top. Place into the machine and roll it on through…
In a matter of seconds you will have a perfectly punched template. There is a random tab on the bottom of the template, which I found it easier to fold the box without – so cut it off…
Then using a firm scrapbook adhesive, fold and secure your darling pizza box!
The finished, folded size of this adorable mini-pizza box is: 3.75″ x 3.75″ x .75″
///// It’s Time to Party with the Groom! /////
Download the design above, three to a sheet. Print onto 8.5″ x 11″ text weight paper, either at home or your local print shop. Cut out each invite card on the lines… then fill in the party info!
Attach the card to the top of the box using scrapbooking adhesive like Glue Dots…
..and then attach the other card to the inside flap of the box.
Gather up your freshly painted silly boy toys…
Fill your bachelor party boxes with whatever you please…
I think it might be time to party with the Groom…!
To seal the box, use a few pieces of manly-colored washi tape… and your done!
