Party Invites ... Mickey Mouse Head Invites

Caden has decided on Mickey Mouse for his birthday theme.  So on the hunt I went to find a cool Mickey Mouse invite.  I saw MANY ideas of a Mickey Mouse head invite but no one had a step by step how to do.  So I had to take the ideas I saw and kind of ran with it!


Here is what I came up with:

My first step was to buy a Mickey Mouse Cricket cartridge.  NOW I found several you-tube video's on how to make the circles yourself but let's just say I rather buy a kit that does it for me.  I found one on Amazon that had the characters and the Mickey Head I needed and it was super cheap!!  Regular $99 for $29.90 (Cricut 29-0382 Shape Mickey and Friends Cartridge for Cricut Cutting Machines).  Now figuring out how to print the head took me HOURS and an hour on the phone with Cricut Tech Support!  ALL you have to do is press shift + icon and then click on Mickey (the one in the star). EVEN though the girl from Tech support told me this wouldn't work it DID!!  I made the cricut cut go to the largest it could do and printed.  I believe I got 2 heads per half sheet I put in my machine.

What you Need:
Mickey & Friend Cricut Cartridge

Black Card Stock
Red Card Stock
White Card Stock
Ribbon (Red with White Dots)
Yellow Buttons
Glue Gun
Glue Stick
Cricut Machine
Circle Cutter

Instructions:

  1. Cut Black Mickey Heads
  2. Cut Red Circles / I cut of 1/4 of the top to make it a 3/4 circle (I measured the size of the Mickey Head to find out what size circle I needed)
  3. Took hot glue gun to glue on yellow buttons.
  4. Took hot glue gun to glue on ribbon, pinched in middle to make look like a bow.
  5. Glue stick around the outer edge of the black circle to stick the red on top.  REMEMBER you need to put the invite inside so stick close to edge.
  6. Print on white cardstock your invite.  
  7. Cut with a circle cutter make sure it is small enough to fit inside your pocket you made.


Easy Peasy and yup I'll have like 30 to make ... lol.
