Jaden decided that for her fourth birthday, she wanted to celebrate Rapunzel style! Ever since she saw Tangled, she has been obsessed! Here are the invitations I created for her! I saw this idea but thought it looked a little too plain.
First, I cut 1/3 off of the length of my yellow cardstock, making the dimensions 8.5"x7.334" (think of a tri-fold brochure and cut off one panel). Then, I folded that in half making my card 8.5"x3.667" (again, think brochure size).
Next, I found stone-like paper to represent Rapunzel's tower and cut that to fit the front of my invitation (8.5"x3.667").
Using double-sided tape, I attached the stone to the front of the card.
Then, I cut triangle roofs from purple paper and attached them to the top of the card, right on top of the stone paper.
Then, I cut along the edge of the purple triangle (through the front and back of the card) to create the roof of the tower.
Next, I cut a window out of the front of the tower.
Rapunzel has blonde hair, but Jaden has red hair so our braid had to be red! To create the braid, I sandwiched three 8-inch strands of yard between double sided tape.
Then, I tucked the taped end in the window, between the stone and yellow papers.
Then, I just braided the yarn and tied it off with a piece of yellow yarn.
Finally, I made the invitation part, printed and trimmed them, and attached them to the inside of the card!
