Happy Birthday Jackson!

Jack's 2nd birthday is coming up. I have enjoyed making the kids' birthday invitations and decorations - and even decorating their cakes! But this invite is my favorite by far!

The invitation part is printed on recycled cardstock and is approximately 5x7 inches. The yellow parts of the truck are printed on yellow card stock and are separate. The black parts of the truck (the wheels and the dirt in the truck bed) are black construction paper. (I made all the files from scratch and am willing to share!) The truck bed is hinged with a small brad. The invitation details are viewable when you "dump" the truck.

Next up, making the pinata we'll use at the party and putting the favors together. Maybe it goes without saying that the party will be a "digger" theme. Meanwhile, Natalie wants a My Little Pony and Disney Fairies birthday party. Wish me luck with that one!
