Doggy Bone Party Invites

What do you think?

Doggy-ish enough?

I struggled with these things. I had what I wanted in my head... and never quite got it transferred to reality as I intended. lol.

I hate it when that happens.

I was thinking of the bones being fatter little bones but I kinda like how these turned out :)

I started with this:

*doggy scrapbook paper
*several sheets of tan cardstock
*keychain rings from the Dollar Store

I used my Cricut and the Mickey Mouse cartridge to cut out all the bones.

And my cricut blade is getting a little dull.
Didn't make it fun to get them out. :)

But I did.

I used Word to come up with the wording I wanted for them and printed them directly to the cardstock.
Originally I was going to use Vellum but the pattern was just too much behind it.

I cut these into strips, tore the edges and inked them. (hey, staying true to my name!)

And put them all together!

I punched a hole in the top to put the keychain through.
Do they look like little doggy collar tags?
That's what I was going for.

Anyways, these are out.
So now I've got to get onto party stuff.

Happy Tuesday!




  1. If you're thinking of little things for a Dog Party, check out my blog, or at least this post :

    I threw a birthday party for my little puppy, and invited all my friends and their kids. I got little dog food bowls and put the kids' names on them. And I made puppy chow and put it in a big dog bowl (we needed a new one anyways.) I'll be stalking your blog to see all your cute stuff!! ♥

  2. Love how they turned out! Too cute!!


Reading your comments makes my day!!! I'd love for you to leave me some love and make me smile :)
