The twins are having a teddy bear picnic for their birthday party this year. They also requested we have bees too. I'm not quite sure where that request came from, but now they are having a bears and bees party ... picnic style.
The invitations are going out this week. They would have gone out last week, but my initial idea of handmade jigsaw puzzles were ... let's just say ... thwarted by a pair of 3 year olds wielding paint brushes and a bowl of water.
I think these turned out much cuter than the handmade jigsaw puzzles anyway.
I had been carrying around these canvas book covers for years. When I say years, I mean we've moved house 3 times. I had initially purchased them to use as class gifts when Jay was in elementary school.
To use them as the cover for the invitations I hand drew and painted a bumble bee to match the one I did on the photo board and printed it on transfer paper to iron onto the front of the book cover. Then using a fabric paint pen added the smaller details. Inside I put a little felt bear peeking out of one side and the invitation with a map of the party location on the other side.
