DIY Invitation Cards

Sheena is our DIY queen. She would much rather create her own version of something than buy it ready-made. Of course, that doesn’t always bode well for Samir! Sheena has filled their basement storage room with arts and craft supplies and you can always find little tid bits here and there around the house. One her favorite DIY projects is creating invitation cards! She has made many to date, but we are sharing her top three with you all. She custom made casino royale themed invitations for our dad’s 60th birthday celebration (pictured above). You can see more DIY details from that celebration here. She also made custom “Alice In Wonderland” themed invitation cards for our cousin’s bridal shower (pictured below). And her personal favorite – she custom made her own baby shower invitation cards for when she was pregnant with her twin boys. She loves every minute of her projects so much and we’re secretly convinced Samir loves them too! What do you think of these creations?
