Ok – so the goal is to have a stinking cool-ass birthday party theme without being a Fortune 500 mommy (or Fortune 500 beneficiary) of some kind. I don’t live in Conn. for heaven’s sake (you know why they call it that, right…?)
I basically got the idea from lots of fancy and expensive handmade envelopes I was seeing and an aisle and sale of paper goods at Rite Aid. It’s not the fastest way to do something, but I started thinking about it 2 months in advance, which is good lead time for any project of small proportions. Instructions after the jump.
