Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me…

Ahoy, matey! Avast ye! Come take a gander at me new pirate invitations! Hold on to your booty because these invites are too cute to handle!

Are you sick of the same old red and black boy pirate invitations? Do you need something a little more cute for your little girl buccaneer? Well, I have the answer to all your problems! I designed these especially for my little niece, Novalee Paige, who is turning 3 at the end of July. She really wanted a pirate theme birthday bash, so I came up with a pirate girl invitation to look like her.

 

Sooo do you scallywags and wenches want to know how to create these invites or what? These were a bit time consuming but totally worth it!

I bought the paper from a local scarpbooking store called Treasured Memories Scrapbooking Store and the rest of the supplies at Michael’s. Just keep in mind how much you can make this pirate girl your own: make it a brunette or a red-head, give her a different color scarf or make it out of cool design paper, change the color of her eyes to make it special for your little one, or remove the hair to make it a boy! Be creative! Here is what you need:

1) Paper for the flesh and hair, black for the outline and inside of the eyes/eyelashes(this is 1 piece in the svg), white for the eyes and a different color for the iris, paper for the scarf (2 different colors if you want the polka dot look or 1 if you want a different look/design), small gold link hoops (found in the jewelry section at Michael’s) for the earrings, paper for the eye patch and ribbon to connect to the eye patch, glue, pop up adhesives for the nose.

2)I personally used glitter paper on the scarf, eye patch and eyes to make it more fun, but that’s all up to you. A lot of people don’t like to use glitter paper in their Cricut, but you can always bling up your paper with glitter that spreads on or buy paper that is embellished.

3)Last thing you need is a Cricut to cut out my pirate .svg that was made from scratch ūüôā Just click below to get started on your new project:

Put it altogether now:

1) It’s quite simple after you cut out all your pieces on your Cricut. Just score the hair so you can fold it, glue the forehead of the face onto the bangs, glue eyes together and onto the face, use pop up adhesives on the nose to attach to the face.

2) Attach patches to ribbon with glue separately. Glue one end of the ribbon to top of pirate ear and the other end above the bangs. Cover ribbon end by gluing scarf on top of head. Glue scarf with cut-out circles on top of solid scarf.

3) Attach gold earrings by punching small holes with needle and loop them through.

4) Information on the inside was set-up on Photoshop and cut on the Cricut by measuring carefully. After that, your pirate is complete. Savvy?

I hope I didn’t confuse ye too badly. Just message me if ye have any questions and use the pictures for reference. Thanks for checking out me site! Enjoy making those pirates! Aarrrrrrrrrrgh…..

 

Check out the fun photos from the party!

Pirate decorations with a purple, blue, ¬†silver, and black color scheme. Streamers, ¬†plates, napkins, ect. were easy to find in ¬†these colors. We added palm trees to add a ¬†pirate/island vibe to the party and shark fin ¬†ice in the punch ūüôā

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add a treasure chest full of jewelry your kids already have is a great touch! Make sure to display your desserts, especially if a lot of hard work was put into them and if they match your theme perfectly!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yum yum cupcakes! These  delightful treats were made  by my sister, Taryn, and our  good friend, Sergio Morales.  Tasty and adorable!

 

 

 

The birthday banner was made by…guess who… ME! It was made with love to match the party colors and pirate font to match the theme. Feel free to contact me on how to make your own bday banner!

 

The birthday girl and me! Hope you had a great day!

    The picture does not do these adorable invites justice! I’ve had the pleasure of seeing these and the detail definitely makes them special and one-of-a-kind. Great idea!!
