SPRINKLES PARTY INVITATION
In March, my daughter Arden will be 4 and my son Oliver will be 2. This year we’ve decided to have a combined party so I was needing a fun way to create a gender neutral graphic to be used on their birthday party invitation. I did a little brainstorming and came up with an idea to use cake sprinkles to create a “2/4” graphic for the invitation.
In honor of their birthdays I’ve listed a little tutorial to share with all of you!
• 1 Bottle Rainbow Nonparelis
• Spray Adhesive
• Solid Paper Background (any flat surface will do as long as you don’t mind spraying with adhesive)
• Paper Stencil
1. Print and cut out your graphic to create a stencil. Be sure to leave connections for any center pieces that will fall out (such as the center for the number 4).
2. Position your stencil face up on your background surface.
3. Spray lightly with adhesive.
4. Sprinkle the Nonparelis on top.
5. Now for the fun part! Carefully peel off the paper revealing the design.
6. Photograph your work.
There are so many things that can be done with this method. Just by switching out the sprinkles for glitter, grass, confetti, etc., you can create a custom look.
I’ve been thinking about ways to use the reverse effect as shown by left over stencil here:
I love how the invitation turned out and I’m looking forward applying the same design to the icing on their cake.
