Hello, I'm Jeanette Conner. I've been a visual artist for eight plus years, and today I'm going to show you how to make a child's princess invitation card. For this project, you're going to need gray card stock paper, rainbow colored card stock paper, brown card stock paper, any ribbon color of your choice, gemstones, glitter glue, or something sparkly to decorate your card with, and pink or your princess' favorite color card stock paper. So what you're going to first, is you're going to cut your gray card stock paper into the shape of a castle. What I did is I took my card and I folded it in quarters towards the middle so there's a flap like a door, and then I just simple cut a spire and a castle tower. Then you're going to take and cut out of brown card stock paper an arch door frame. A really easy way to do that is to take your paper, take something round, and draw an arch here and then straight lines down. Simple as that. For the balloons, just cut out balloon shapes out of all of your cards and glue them together with hot glue and attach ribbons and you can tie them in a bow and curl them at the end with scissors if you want. you're going to take your door and you're going to cut it in half so just fold it equally in half and then cut down the center. Take your hot glue and glue your door on. And with a permanent marker or a black marker, just draw the door handles. Next you're going to glue your balloons down on the inside. I kind of like on top of the second spire so that you can see them peeping out of the card, but they're also still inside the card enough. glue it down to the spire. And you can even leave the ribbons hanging out like that. The next thing you're going to want to do is take the colored card paper for the inside and cut it to size. I'm just eyeballing this, but you'd probably want to measure it out and use straight lines drawn out beforehand to cut it accurately. Once you have it cut just glue it down. Then to decorate the inside, a touch more, we're going to take our ribbon and make tapestries or curtains for the sides. And I just fold the ends of the ribbons down. This is wired ribbon. Holds its shape very well. And just glue that down and take more ribbon and do the same. And just curl the bottom of the ribbon. Glue it down below as well. After you finished gluing your curtains down to the side, then you can write the information in the middle of the card. I'm going to say come join princess Dora. Come join princess Dora at a birthday princess ball in your best ball gown. You can write whatever invitation message you want. Just make sure to include very feminine, pretty words like princess, and ball, fairies, magical, sparkles, fantastic, anything that makes the ball sound like the most amazing night of fun for a little girl. Then you can take rhinestones or glitter paint, glitter glue, and decorate your card. You can do swirls and exclamation points, and other various designs to deck out your card. Just make sure to let it dry all the way before you close it back up. And there's how you make a really cute princess birthday party invitation card. This is Jeanette Conner, and today we learned how to make a child's princess invitation card.
