Despicable Me Birthday ... Minion Invites

Caden's party is this weekend so I'm in overdrive trying to do all the little things I've found on Pinterest.  I saw so many cool designs for an invite, most were one's you paid and they shipped them to you.  Well you know me I want to do it myself, plus it saves me money ... NOW not TIME but it saves money.

I used my Cricut to cut out everything which saved me TONS of time!  I used my George and Basic Shapes Cartridge that came with my Cricut when I bought it.  It was the best it had all the shapes I needed.

Here is what you Need:
Yellow Card Stock
Black Card Stock
Blue Card Stock
Grey Card Stock
White Card Stock (5x7 cards if you have them)
Google Eye (Large)
Black Sharpie (Draw on the G)
Glue

What you need to do:
Yellow Rectangle 1 - Size 5 1/2 (Body)
Grey Circle - Size 1 1/2 (Eye)
Black Circle - Size 1 (Eye)
Black "I" - Size 4 (Eye Strap)
Black "I" - Size 1 1/2 (Hair)
Black Moon - Size 1 1/2 (mouth)
Black Button - Size 1 (buttons)
Blue Square - Size 2 1/2 (overalls)
Blue Rectangle 3 - 1 1/2 (overall straps)

Find a good glue you like, I bought one at Hobby Lobby I wasn't impressed with.  I went back to my craft glue and it worked out perfect!  I printed on the back a 5x7 cardstock card the invite wording (I downloaded Las Vegas Font - aka Despicable Me Font - go to DOWNLOAD do NOT download the zip opener):

I took my corner cutter and cut the corners to be rounded. I glued the white invite on to the back of my minion.  To make the minion:  Take your yellow body, add the blue square on the bottom to look like overalls, add the straps and buttons.  Take a black sharpie to add a G.  The black strap is added to the top.  Make your eye grey, black on top and then googly eye.  After you add that eye on top of the black strip.  Add your moon for the mouth and the little I's for the hair on top.  See the picture below to show you step by step.
