Fancy Frugal Life: Glam Dora Backpack Invitations

Glam Dora Backpack Invitations

I started my party planning for my daughter's 3rd birthday today and I'm excited on how well her invites turned out! Especially since I am not an artist and didn't have a template to work off of!




This image I found online was my inspiration.






















First I folded a sheet of paper in half and made two shapes like this one, for the front and back.





Then I traced my template and cut out the two parts on my purple paper. Then I glued the edges around to secure.




I wanted to glam up the backpack a little so I attached ribbon to the bottom front and feather boa stuff to the bottom back







I found the backpack face pieces on Nick Jr. here,







I made an insert for the invite info to place inside the invite. I also embellished the top with ribbon.
Also I glued a tiny velcro circle to keep the backpack closed.



The invites say this:

We need your help!
Will you help us celebrate Lily’s
3rd birthday?
Great!
Come on Vamanos! Everybody let’s go!
Where are we going?
Lily’s House-
When are we going?
date and time of party



I will be working on some cute decorations next so stay tuned for some chic Dora fun!!
