Birthday Week: Dots Party Set

Happy Monday We R fans! It’s Birthday Week here on the blog, which means all week we’ll be sharing birthday projects and inspiration–from decor, to favors, to invites, and more–so be sure to visit often. We’re going to kick this week off with a dots-themed party set.

Picking a design theme to carry through all your party paper crafts is a great way to create a sense of unity and cohesion at your party. For this set I chose a dots theme and repeated that pattern throughout my projects. To create the gift box I dry embossed a piece of 6×6 textured cardstock after I had used a brayer to coat the inside top of the embossing folder with ink. Designer Tip: the ink cleans up easily with a baby wipe, or by rinsing the folder thoroughly in warm water.

Then I used my Gift Box Punch Board to create a small box for party favors, adding some Baker’s Twine and a Hip Hip Hooray Embossed Sticker.

For the invite I used another inking technique to get the opposite effect. This time I dry embossed a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch piece of textured cardstock with the smaller dot embossing folder, and then I gently rubbed my ink pad directly over the raised design.

I used the Rings Cupcake Liner Die and a Label It Kit die to cut the pieces out of some Hip Hip Hooray Wish Patterned Paper for the cupcake.

  1. These are some cute Invitations :3 Oh I love this dot pattern .. If I’ll ever get an invitation that cute, I’d totally come to that matter what 😀 And with your tools it’s almost too easy to create so professional looking invitations.I’ll need those 😀

    Even though I buy almost everything from invitations to decoration in the only partyarticle shop I trust, I’d love to make those things by myself. But because of my two left hands I never thought I could do it. But with your tools I’m certain this will work and I’ll finally be able to craft my custom invitations and decorations :3

    Totally gonna tell you how it worked out :>

    Love Liz
