Today I am sharing a Minecraft Birthday Pack that I made as a Silent Auction item for my daughters’ PAC Parent Dance this weekend. 

Included in the pack are 12 invitations that I created using my Silhouette.

Minecraft Invitations

The letters on the front are cut out and then backed with washi tape. The block in the middle was something I designed using images found on line as inspiration. I cut it out of three different colours of card stock and then pieced them together. The back side of the invitation is pre-printed with blanks for your party information. (Forgot to take a photo of it, oops!)

Here is a short video on how I achieved the distinctive block pattern that you seen in Minecraft images.

Minecraft Goody Bags

The goody bags are plain white paper lunch bags that I decorated. First I used the same inking technique I showed you in my video to cover the front of the bag. Then I cut the green border and added my creeper face. Pretty simple but highly impactful too.

And what would a birthday party be without a banner?

Minecraft Birthday Banner

I once again put my Silhouette to work to create a pixelated banner shape.

I used a lot of stash items from my Stampin’ Up days, like card stock and inks, plus plain white paper lunch bags that I kept when the preschool my two older girls attended shut down 3.5 years ago. Throw in some newly created cut files and it’s like all your “old” stuff is new again!

Now you’re off to Cathy’s blog. Thanks for hopping with us today!
