Want to save some money and make your own New Years Party decorations???

Well, here are some quick and easy party invitations and decorations made with just the bare minimum of supplies!

Save money and have fun at the same time.

To create the invitation, table place card, and hats I used black cardstock as the foundation for each piece then stamp and emboss using the same embossing inks and powder (Seafoam White).

*Invitation ~ stamp the damask image along the edge and emboss. Finish the invite by using the Opaque Pen to write out your details.

*Table Name/Place Cards ~ stamp the damask image and emboss, cut the cardstock into 2"x4" strips. Write each persons name on the card. Add a cardstock tent to the back of the card to stand.

*The mans cone party hat ~ cut a piece of cardstock into a half circle ~ stamped and embossed the design in an all-over random pattern. Attach a bit of wired tinsel around the rim and if desired add a bit of stretch cord.

*To create the woman's tiara party hat ~ stamp the damask image once, cut it out leaving a 2" tail on the bottom. I twisted the wired tinsel into a circle and attached the stamped image to the circle by tucking the "tail" into the wired tinsel and securing (can be done with adhesive or staples).

How easy is that?!?!?

***Additional decorations can be created using the same supplies....napkin rings, center piece, candy wrappers, add a bit of shrink material and make your own wine glass tags, etc. ***

*#*#*Ideas to add zip to the basic design: Use glitter embossing powder instead of white, add Stickles Glitter Glue to the design, use glitter, glass glitter, sequins to embellish. Add faux gemstones to your embossed images. Use flock instead of embossing powders or glitter. *#*#*

You don't have to spend loads of money to create fun and funky party decorations!

So go ahead ~

do it without breaking the bank!
