Travelogue. Bali inspiration.

We recently spent three weeks in Bali on our fourth trip. This time I really kept my senses open to all of my surroundings, finding inspiration in just about every place I went. I spent a few days searching for materials for new Zose Designs creations. I found LOTS!

How to… Make teapot birthday invitations.

For my daughter’s birthday this year, the theme was “A secret garden.” We handmade these cute invitations together. It was a perfect activity to keep her busy on rainy days. These are much cheaper (and cuter) to make than buying expensive party invitations. Plus, you can personalize them anyway you want. Here is a brief tutorial for how to make these yourself.

Materials:

  • scrapbook paper
  • cardstock paper for the back of the invitations
  • mod podge
  • hot glue gun
  • decorations. We used wooden buttons for the teapot lids, grosgrain ribbon, ric-rac and paper cutout butterflies and flowers.

Instructions:

  • Trace the teapot template onto cardstock (for the back) and patterned scrapbook paper (for the front). Cut out your teapot. Make sure to cut on the dotted line for the front of the teapot, but not the back.
  • Print your invitation information into the rectangle template provided. This will be inserted inside the teapot when finished. Make sure to print it on heavier cardstock, so that it doesn’t bend when inserting.
  • With your hot glue gun glue just the outer corners of the back (card stock) onto the front of the teapot (scrapbook paper). Make sure to leave an opening for the inserted invitation.
  • When dry, decorate with your ribbons, brads, buttons, etc. Have fun personalizing your invitations! Your guests will love these.

Here is the template that we used for our invitations: teapot template.
