Get Tangled up in these invites

So, I previously expressed that I am not a big fan of doing cartoon characters because it can be pricey or too time consuming. When my friend approached me about doing some Tangled invites for her daughter’s b-day I was a little hesitant. Then, I decided to let down my hair and just go for it! Here is what I came up with…

tangled invitations, handmade invitations, rapunzel, tower, castle, princess, birthday party, girl, tangled svg

Cute, right? These were (as were all of the others) also done on a budget and I am so happy with the way they turned out. All the materials for this project were bought at Michael’s.

1) The info is printed on transparent paper which is layered on a pretty pink pattern paper. Very girly!

2) The tower svg was made from scratch and cut on my cricut. I used a dark grey for the base, light grey for the middle, and purple for the roof. I topped it off by adding a little sparkle to the purple. I twisted 4 pieces of pale yellow yarn together, tied it off with purple string, and dangled it out the window.

I really wanted to give the base of the tower a stone look but I was short on time and didn’t get a chance to see what was out there to create that look. I was thinking of using a stamp, but I am not sure if there is one out there that would create that look. Just a little suggestion for anyone who might try these out. All you need is paper, glue, a trimmer, yarn, string, and a cricut to cut out the tower. Just look below for the tower .svg file.

    Hello there, Ashley! Unfortunately, the tower .svg was handmade and can only be cut out with Sure Cuts A Lot or an equivalent software. You can download mine for free on the Tangled post. I rarely use cartridges because they do not always have what I need. I highly recommend getting some kind of software so you can find more specific files, like the tower, online. Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further questions :)

    Hi, I don’t have a cricut, but I would still love to make these for my daughters bday party, what is the size of the invitation? Great job!

    Hello Alicia. Thank you for your interest in my invites. They were a huge hit! From the bottomed of the tower to the top is 7 inches and the background is 5 inches wide. I just played around with it until they looked good. I thought the tower would look taller of it went off the background a bit. I highly recommend investing in a cricut if you ever get the opportunity. It’ll make your paper crafts much easier. I also take orders if your interested in doing that as well. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have anymore questions.

    I love the invite! I have been looking & looking for a cute one & was planning to combine a few to get what I want. Now I don’t have to. :) Thanks SO much for the svg. This will actually be my first SCAL project. Do you have any other pictures/ideas from your party? I would it if you wanted to share.

    I am so happy you found it useful! It is good to know people are actually using the svg. Unfortunately, I did not attend this party. It was for a co-worker’s daughter. My husband actually has an idea to get yellow streamer and drape it around the room like it was her hair? Might work. Cheap and worth the try. If you come up with more ideas, please feel free to post them on here or send in some pics. It would be cool to see what others come up with. I would really enjoy it and it would help out others too! Thanks so much for your post. Have fun!

    Thank you so much for your SVG. I’ve been looking for weeks now on invitation ideas and I now know what to do. My daughter is turning 3 and she is obsessed with Rapunzel. This is going to be perfect. :)

    Good morning!
    I LOVE this invitation! Don’t have a cricut, but will try to cut everything by hand.
    What font did you use for the invitation wording?
    Thank you!

    Julie! I am so sorry to get back to you so late. I recently went back to college and have been swamped in school work! I am not sure what font I used, but I download my fonts from dafont.com. There are tons of free cute fonts on this site. I highly recommend looking at this site. I also take orders if you are ever interested. I will be sure to stay on top of my emails now that I am in the swing of things with school and work. Thank you for taking the time to look at my site!

    These are adorable! I was wondering about what you posted in a perverious comment about downloading your tower cut out the the Cruicit. My mom has a Cruicit and I would love to use the tower for my daughters princess party. Thanks do much for your help.

    Can you tell me more about the Sure Cuts A Lot. I have a Cricut and I’ve heard of software for creating your own “images” but I honestly don’t know anything about it. I’ve had my Cricut for about 3-4 years but honestly I’m still a little afraid of it. Either way I just love this invitation and would like to use your svg to recreate it for my daughter’s birthday. Thanks!

    Hi there! Thank you for the commnet :) Sure Cuts A Lot 2 is software that is compatible with the Cricut and allows you to cut your own .svg files, or downloaded .svg files, so you are not limited to what comes on Cricut cartridges. Unfortunately, this software was discontinued for legal reasons, but I have heard the Cricut Craft Room is a program that allows to import and use .svgs as well. I have not tried the Cricut Craft Room myself, but you might want to try and have a go at it. Maybe download and import one of my free .svgs to see if it works?
