We couldn't let the St. Patrick's Day party be any less awesome since we actually planned it a month in advance. For St. Patty's day we decided to let J and Ellie in on the fun.
First I carved a shamrock out of a potato which took about 3 minutes. Then I dipped it in modge podge (because I was out of white glue) and stamped it on white cardstock.
Then I tapped the cards onto a board (this one is a random piece of Ikea furniture from the time I bought a pile of scraps in the as-is section for $5. It is awesome for crafts when I want to protect my table)
Then I showed the girls how to do darkest at the bottom and light at the top. I have some liquid watercolor so it helped that they only had one color to choose from. Otherwise we would have needed a rainbow look/
Once they got tired of it, I went back over them to even out the colors for the ombre look we were going for. Then we let them dry and peeled off the tape. I liked the white border so we didn't trim them.
Since we only had 8 invites, I just hand wrote the info. Add a little washi tape to the envelope and BAM! you know it will be a fun party.
