Well tonight I get the privilege of sharing the invites with you from Zechariah's 13th Birthday Party. Which is only fitting since I spent hours making them! :) lol
Any guesses on how many invites there are?

I think this was the hardest part of the invites. When we printed them we did print it with the child's name on it, and addressed them as Noble Knight or Fair Lady. This one is a generic we made for anyone we might have forgotten.
Scrapbook paper (we used one sheet per invite)
Ribbon (we did red for boys and purple for girls)
Red and Purple scrapbook paper for the name labels
Wax sealing kit
First I printed the invite
Then I burnt the edges (for aging effect)
This really added alot to the look of the invite but let me warn you, OPEN A WINDOW! Wow I could not believe how bad scrapbook paper smells as it is burning.
Then I rolled it up and added the wax seal.
Wax Sealing is very easy so don't let it intimidate you. It is actually slightly fun, I want to find more to wax seal! :)
All that is left is to tie it with a ribbon and a name tag (we did the name tags since every invite was addressed to the child).
The invites were a huge success, kids, parents, even teachers called me saying how cool they were. And they really set the mood for the party!
Keep checking back for more on this party.! And the two crazy ladies who through it! :)
