Mickey's Birthday

Welcome to our Mickey Mouse Birthday Blog Hop!  This year, Mickey Mouse is turning 83 and we thought it would be fun to all celebrate with our little ones.  I'll be sharing about making Mickey Mouse birthday invitations, great for our blog hop and for my little one's 2nd birthday!  You can find links to other party ideas at the end of the post!

To make Mickey's invitation, I thought about copying what Melissa made for her daughter's 2nd birthday.  I have to admit, that would have been much easier.  But, instead, I got on Etsy to get some creative ideas - and it worked!  
The Final Product
If you're up for some paper crafting, here's the process!

First, I pulled out a lot of paper and tools to get my motors working:
I had already traced a Mickey on a scrap of paper to be the base for everything and used traced around it to cut out both black and red mice:

 The next step was the easy one - I used a tape roller to stick the red cut out to the black mickey, then stamped some buttons on.  I embellished the buttons by using button brads as well:

Then, for the invitation, I used stamps, scraps of paper, a sharpee, and stickers to make:

I hope the invitation made it to you and you enjoy Mickey Mouse's Birthday Party!!
