Recycled Western Cowboy Invitations

These cool invitations made for a 7th birthday party imitate a bandana stuffed into the pocket of a pair of jeans, or maybe the front pocket of your shirt. Made from recycled papers and materials means they are inexpensive to make as well as environmentally friendly. Bonus!


Wild west pocket invitations

I recycled some items to make this invitation to my son's 7th birthday party. The theme for the party was Western cowboy, etc.


I used some old file folders for the yellow backing card stock and re-used some twine from an old stack of newspapers that were delivered to my work. I am unsure of the fabric printed paper brand, as I bought them last year. I used yellow staples to mimic the stitching of jean pockets a bit. My son helped assemble them. He loved using the stapler, ho

le punches and the decorative edge scissors! Fonts are freeware downloaded off the internet. My son hand addressed them.
