Pirate Party- Invitations

I am going to post everyday something that I have been working on for Preston's party. I have done a lot, probably way too much! I am excited and as long as the weather holds up it will be a great adventure!

Lets start with the invitations, that's always the first thing right?

I used bottles and labeled them with the guest names, this was so to say the envelope. Oh and we hand delivered these. Here is Preston getting ready to make his deliveries
For the inside I made the invitation then wadded them into a ball to add the wrinkled effect. I then dyed them in tea for a few minutes to have an aged color. I laid them out to dry , but before the drying was complete I burned the edges. This works a lot better if the paper is still damp.

Once they were all dry I rolled them up and they were ready for delivery!



  1. Those invitations are adorable!! You are so talented!!

  2. Love it!!! Can't wait to see more of his big day.

  3. Happy Belated Birthday to you! That pirate theme is very very cute!
