Mermaid Invitations

These invitations were made for an underwater / mermaid themed party

How they were put together

The bottle is about 7" tall and is actually a recycled mini wine bottle. It has a screw top, so I disguised that by wrapping cotton cord around the cap.

I added and embossed strip of cardstock to the neck and then further embellished with the fibers, pearls and shells. The final addition was the tag with the recipients name is on the reverse.

The invitation itself is about 5x7" and was created on the computer and then printed onto a parchment type paper, then I inked and distressed it within an inch of it's life. The finishing touch is a wrap made of cardstock and tied with cotton cord.

Hot tip: It is important to tie the invitation after it is rolled up so it can be easily removed from the bottle.

These are easily passed out by hand, but if mailing is necessary a mailing tube cut down to size works wonderfully!
