This handmade teddy bear party invitation is perfect for your teddy bear picnic or teddy bear themed birthday party.
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.
