Mickey Mouse Party .... Invite Take 2

As most of you know Caden's birthday party is this weekend.  He was very worried that his classmates would not show since they have been out of school since 5/31.  So the week school ended I passed out these Mickey Mouse Invites to his classmates.  Since it's been a few weeks and I know not all parents keep things on their fridge so I wanted to send a second invite BUT of course I didn't want to send the same invite (REALLY stop rolling your eye's at me you so know me by now).

I found a really cute idea on Whimpsy Creations by Ann on Etsy.  I took this idea and ran with it!  Mine is a tweaked version of her's, if I of course had more time in my day would have done the fun yellow behind the party hat but I of course was running around like a nut and even had to run to the other side of town to get them in the mail since I missed the pick up time at my neighborhood post office.

What You Need:
Card Stock Paper (Black, White and Red)
George & Basic Shape Cricut Cartridge (this came with my machine, but use what you have)
Circle Cutter (I used my EK Success Scissor Pro)

First print on white card stock your invite info.  I was able to do 4 on one sheet, I took my circle cutter to cut them out.  (I was in a hurry and just noticed the one I showed above wasn't perfect but oh well.)  I cut out a mickey head on the circut, I could get 2 heads per sheet using the 5" size.  I then put in the George and Basic Shape to cut out the numbers (6) and triangle for the hat.  IF I had more time I'd cut a yellow triangle the same size, then take a whole punch to cut out on the red to let the yellow peak through.  Make sure you glue the white circle down first THEN put a little glue on bottom on triangle and put on.  (YES I made the mistake of doing it backwards.)  After you glue the invite info and party hat, glue the # of the birthday kid on each ear. IF doing the double color party hat, use a punch to make a few peek a boo wholes in the red and add the yellow behind (so you can see the pop of yellow behind).
