Monster Truck Party Invites

You know how kids are. For the last 48 months, Yummy has been planning his birthday party. He had a deadline to decide on a theme. As soon as he said "Monster Trucks!" he started planning next year's party, 13 months away.

Which leaves me two weeks to plan a Monster Truck Party.

I've booked a picnic area and made invitations. I didn't think I would need to make invites--I figured Monster Trucks would be everywhere--but I hunted in two party stores and decided to stop wasting time and went to the craft store.

What I We Made:

Monster Truck invitations. Yummy found the truck stickers and I found the cards, envelopes, scrapbook paper and sandpaper. Yummy ripped, I glued, Yummy stickered, I wrote. Then I realized all this blogging has destroyed the tiny bit of legibility my handwriting used to have so I used my printer, then ripped and glued some more.

The best part was running lego tires through paint and then driving them on the envelopes to make tracks.

I think they're darned cute. Better than anything the party store could sell.

Of course next year there will be a whole wall of Monster Truck party stuff and Yummy will want an underwater space monkey theme.


  1. Underwater space monkeys!!!??? LOVE IT!

  2. Super cute! Those trucks are full of bling—wow.

  3. Awesome invitations. I have no doubt you could pull off underwater space monkeys!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog & helping to make my SITS day special!

    please don't leave me hanging- the invites are just the start! What did you do for the rest of the party?? i am in the same boat - there really is not much out there as far as themes and ideas go.
