How to make Fourth of July Invitations
Fun and easy to make, these apron styled bbq invitations were made for the fourth of July celebrations this year. It's amazing how something so simple to make can turn out so good. I put my own spin on the invitation tutorial which had a free template that you can download and print of to get the dimensions for the pocket card just right.
- I gathered my supplies together. I used: Blue and red bazzil cardstock; regular white cardboard; double sided tape; scissors; ribbon; and computer and printer.
- Firstly I downloaded the apron invitation template and printed it on to some leftover card from an old project. I cut it out and traced around it on to the 'wrong side' of my blue bazzill cardstock 20 times for my 20 invites.
- I also downloaded the bbq invitation clip art image and printed onto white regular card. I managed to fit all 20 on to two cards. I used my large circle punch to punch out each image into a nice circle.
- I created a fancy white scalloped trim to liven up my invite and make it a bit more exciting.

I completed the card as per the tutorial. and tied on some ribbon, I punched a couple of extra holes, one on each side of the invite to add additional ribbon ties.
Once the ribbon was tied on I adhered the bbq clip art embellishment to the bottom right hand side of the invite with a bit of foam tape to make it all pop!
