Rainforest Party Pinata and Invitation


Don't forget to link up to my Marvelous Mess party.... I'll be choosing one project to feature on my sidebar for a week!!
My Munchkin chose a rain forest theme for a birthday party this year. It was funny that it was the theme....it happened this past Sunday when Irene came to visit us. We had a tropical rain forest party during a tropical storm.  :-) 
For the invitations I made something very simple using a leafy stamp and a butterfly stamp on some blank cards (one of my hobbies for a while has been to make my own invitations, fancy or not-so-fancy):
To match the card I made a Pinata with tissue paper and glue/water:
I was in love with this pinata. It was so simple to make....blue, green, and yellow tissue paper pasted onto the balloon with watered down glue. I'll tell you....this pinata was a tough one....it took 18 kids to bring it down. :-)

I shared this post at the following funky linky parties:
