While Brielle isn’t a huge tv watcher, she will request “Elmo show” aka Sesame Street as we eat breakfast as she loves that red fuzzy guy. With a new baby on the horizon, we decided to celebrate her birthday a few weeks early with a fun Elmo themed celebration! It was immediate family only (as this 8+ preggo momma couldn’t handle much more) so I went the DIY route for invites.
I dug through my collection of punches and came up with a simple system to create a punch art Elmo face on plain red invites.
The black part of the eyes were made from a trimmed EK tools Large Retro Flower Punch, different sized circles were used for the eyes and nose and a large punched circle cut in half completed that famously large smile.
I was able to quickly assembly the pieces with Brielle’s help (aka placing double sided tape in specified places). I knew my design was a winner when I showed her the invite and she immediate said “Elmo!” Yes! I got my toddler’s approval!
Look for a future post showcasing more details about her Elmo birthday party!
