Project Instructions

p>Print out the verbiage for each party invitation on your vellum and/or transparency sheets. Note: the final area for the words (including a border on all sides) should measure 4½"x5½". Cut these to 4½"x5½"; set aside.

Print and cut out the Airplane and Clouds template pieces. Select four colors to complete each airplane and cloud piece. Trace desired amount of pieces needed for each of your invitations onto the different pieces. Cut these out. Adhere each airplane together, attaching the different layers with paper crafting adhesive and/or foam squares. Attach each propeller in place with a brad. Set these aside.

Select two colors for each invitation. Cut one of the pieces to 4½"x5½" and leave the other as is. Adhere the smaller piece to the center of the larger one, repeating until all of the card base pieces are prepared.

Attach the printed sections from Step 1, one per invitation, securing them in place with a brad in each corner.

Attach an airplane and cloud piece to the top, center section of each invitation.

Tips

If mailing the invitations, be sure to check the postage rate. You might also want to pad the sections with the brads (wrap them in a piece of tissue paper or facial tissue) so that they don’t tear through the envelope while being processed.
