What can you do with an altoids tin? I made my son's first birthday party invitations.
I don't do a lot of scrapbooky type of DIY - I'm much better with a can of spray paint, or some canvases - but I knew I wanted to do something special for his invitations. This is what I came up with.
While it was pretty inexpensive (around $30 for all supplies and tools including the tins), it was a LONG process. Don't worry, it only took like 2 weeks for me to complete them all just to find out TODAY that I put THE WRONG DATE on them. THE WRONG DATE!!!!! HOLY MOLY!
At least there are only 10 families to notify of the wrong date.
Why did I spend all that time on those invites? Just look at my little 'bout to be one year old Turkey! I'd do anything for him!
Well, I guess he probably won't know anything about his first birthday ivitations... OK OK, I did it for ME! I love how they turned out. Just wish I put the right date!
What have you done with altoids tins? Have you ever made or received any other unique invitations? Do you have any other ideas or tips for a first birthday party? DO share!
