Ladybug, Ladybug, fly away home!

I sat down to write about this next project and the title came to my head right away, but all I could think about was the awful nursery rhyme:

Ladybug!  Ladybug!
Fly away home.
Your house is on fire.
And your children all gone.

All except one,
And that’s little Ann,
For she crept under
The frying pan.

Seriously?! How terrible is this? I don’t know who came up with this twisted rhyme and why we would teach it to children! Maybe someone could explain that to me after I explain my ladybug invitations to you…

Ladybug birthday invitations

I made these for my niece’s 1st b-day bash. Very appropriate and an easy theme to decorate with.

These invites were also made on a budget and I believe I bought all these materials from Michael’s for under $20. Here is what went down:

1) I used red shimmery card stock for the wings and basic black for the body/head of the ladybug. The body is one piece and measures to be 5×7. The dots were made with glitter paper to make it a little more fancy-schmancy. All of my ladybugs were cut with my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot 2. Click below for the ladybug .svg file:

2) Of course, googly eyes were added! Why wouldn’t they be? Always keep those babies in stock!

3)  I printed the info on white 5×7 cardstock and carefully measured a circle to cut around the body of text on Sure Cuts A Lot.

And there you have it! Hope you enjoyed these little ladies  🙂 Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments! Below are some pics of my beautiful niece and her very 1st birthday celebration!

The birthday girl, Kenley Addison.

The decorations were a pic-nic theme. I also cut out big  ladybugs and  daisies to hang on the walls and from the ceiling. Super fun and super cute!

Pimped the high chair with some more ladybugs I cut from the cricut.

The cakes! I wish I could take credit for these, but they were created by my sister, Taryn. Everyone give her a round of applause! These are among her first cakes that she has decorated. Beginner’s luck? Nah! Just a natural! Good job, Sis!

    Hi there,

    I saw these ladybug invites and loved them. I would also like to make these myself. I was just wondering if you have the cut out templates saved as a file and if so could you send them to me? I noticed you had something ladybig.svg file, but my computer wont alloe me to open. If you could please get back to me thay would be great. Thanks!

    Hello there! I actually did not use a Cricut cartridge for this invitation. I used the .svg file that I provided in the post.
