Ballerina Tutu Invitation

This frothy pink invitation told guests we would have tutu much fun at Emma's fourth birthday party.

To make a tutu invitation, I searched Microsoft Word for a piece of clip art with a tutu. When I found one I liked, I imported it into my document and edited away everything but the leotard. I re-sized the leotard and placed a text box on the bodice with party details. I printed the invitations on pink card stock and cut out the leotards. I punched two holes in the bottom of each leotard. Then I made a tulle bow, securing it to the front of the invitation with a length of ribbon threaded through the two holes and pulled taut. A second tulle bow tied to the back with a pretty bow completed the tutu. And a strand of adhesive pearls at the neckline added a final feminine detail. (Scrapbook paper, rolls of 6-inch wide tulle and pearl embellishments from Michael's.)

Emma's party was full of giggles and twirls, so come back each day for all the ballerina fun!
