Puppy Party: Invitations

My little bug turned 1! I am still in shock, I don't know what to think. Like 6 months ago or so The Hubs and I decided to get our Bug a dog for his birthday, so going with that I started planning a puppy themed birthday party. Well we ended up getting 2 golden labs for free a few months later, but I kept with the theme.
This is a few days after we got them. (Tonka and Ella)

 Isn't Tonka just the cutest!

Sorry back to the party...
Once the theme was decided I started thinking of what colors I wanted to have. What better kid  colors are there than Blue, red and yellow??? ( this was also during our Smallville watching days so maybe I was influenced)

So I took the idea from the Barnyard invite I did for my Sister's baby shower, 

This is what I came up with for Ryder's Puppy Party

To make these you need yellow, red and blue cardstock. I purchased mine at Joanns when they were on sale for $.16 each.

I first cut the yellow cardstock down to 5x6.5 pieces. (if you use the 8.5x11in size you get 2 from a sheet)
Then I made a template by cutting the "roof" at an angle. The scrap that I cut off I then used for the other invites. I would trace it and then cut.
I then cut the red cardstock for the roof. These pieces were .5x4 inches.
I typed up the saying in red ink, printed and cut.
Then I glued my saying to blue cardstock and cut around it using my paper cutter.
Glue together.
I then added a nameplate to the dog house with each child's name. For invites that were going to more that one child I put the families last name.

I ended up making around 20 of these.
Cost was around $2 bucks for all 20 invites. This does not include envelopes because I already had some leftover from something else. Not a bad price.

My little bug always likes to help me with whatever I do. I had a hard time just trying to get a picture of the invite. 

He is so excited for his puppy birthday party!!!
