DIY . Lemonade Stand Party Invitation

Hi there,

I am so excited to show you how I created this beautiful lemonade stand invitation from my daughter’s second birthday party (here if you missed it) with my sidekick, the Silhouette Cameo.

Supplieskraft card stock paper (from Michaels), yellow and green paper straws (from Target) and white sticker paper (from Amazon).

Shapes (from the Silhouette Online Store): echo park lemonade jar9 tabs setbrackets and washi tape set.

Patterns (from the Silhouette Online Store): yellow flowers, herringbone yellow, confetti yellow, confetti green and green stripe.

Fontsjohn font (Silhouette Online Store), jess font (Silhouette Online Store) and english essay (free).

Using the Silhouette Studio software open up the lemonade jar shape. To remove the colors from this shape I ungrouped it, selected all of the shapes from the inside of the jar, opened the fill color window and chose none. With these shapes still selected I opened the line color window and chose a dark brown.

Now you have the option to let the lemons show through the lemonade or not. Since I needed the space for text I chose not to. To do that select the two lemon shapes and the lemonade, then open the modify window and press subtract all.

Now you are ready to select all the shapes, group them, and size the new formed shape according to the size of invitation you want. In this case I made them in such a way that I could cut two from one piece of paper.

For the text I used a combination of three different fonts: the John Font, Jess Font and English Essay. I find it easier to use separate text boxes, that way you can mess around with them until all the information fits in like a puzzle. I also added the date label from the 9 tabs set and some brackets. Remember to place the text at the right side of the invitation, leaving some space for the straw. Print it on kraft card stock and don’t forget to place the registration marks on your page.

I considered using washi tape for the straw, like I did with the owl invitation, but I wanted to try something out. Once again I opened up the Silhouette Studio and chose the washi tape set shape. I chose one of them and filled it with the pattern I wanted. Then I sized the width to 2.725 inches and printed them out on white sticker paper.

Now it’s time to put it all together and it couldn’t be any easier. Grab some glue dots and put them on the top and bottom of the straw. Then place the washi tape you made on top of it. Don’t rely on the white sticker paper to secure the straw. It will fall out. The last thing you want is for your invitation to be falling apart while you’re handling it.
