Hello, I'm Jeannette Conner, I've been a visual artist for eight plus years, and today I'm going to show you how to make Christmas tea party invites. For this Christmas tea invitation, you're going to need folded card stock paper. I like this decorative card stock, reminds me of a holiday teacup. A gift tag, ribbon, bank card stock paper, and writing utensils. I'm going to use a highlighter for my outlines, and this green, fine tipped, this green fine tipped marker to write with. The first step is, on the inside of your folded card paper, you're going to draw the outline of a mug or a teacup. Try to take up as much space as you can, starting from the top to the bottom. Make sure that your outline goes all the way down to the crease. Then, fold this back, and cut along your outline as neatly as you can. Then, fold it back the other direction. Oops, I forgot my handle hole. To make the handle hole, you can fold your paper like so, and then just cut out the hole, and then fold it back. There we go. Then, you're going to take your glue, and just along the outside edges, give yourself a good amount of glue. And then, you'll have a little pocket inside. On your blank card paper, you're going to write your invitation. Make sure it's small enough to fit inside of your teacup. So, a good way to do that is just put your teacup down, and draw some lines around where your teacup is, so you know not to go outside of that area. I'm just going to write,"You're Invited" really quick, and a date. And then, I'm going to cut that invitation piece out. And then, you're just going to take your ribbon, and you can either use a hole punch and tie your ribbon, I'm going to staple my ribbon. And, I'm going to slip my invitation into my pocket. I'm going to wrap my ribbon around my handle, because I always wrap my tea string around my handle, and it makes it look really cute. And then, just after you've wrapped it around a couple of times, staple your ribbon to your gift tag, and you might want to wrap it around a couple more times. And, if you want to decorate it more, you can always put on stickers. There we go. To add an extra little flair, I'm just going to stick on some stickers so that people know that it is definitely a Christmas invitation. And, there's how you make a very cute Christmas tea invitation. This is Jeannette Conner, and today we learned how to make Christmas tea party invites.
