Monkey Birthday Invitations!

A while back, I made some pink monkey birthday invitations for my niece, Avery, for her first birthday:
My friend Jen asked if I could make some Monkey invitations for her son's sencond birthday. Soooooo, I thought to myself, "why re-invent the wheel"??? I just modified the original pink one I did, and made them for a boy! I made them very similarly, using my Cricut "Create a Critter" for the monkey cuts and the "Accent Essentials" cartridge for the green accent that mats the sentiment.  The monkeys "swing" on the leaf ribbon added to the top of each card!  They're attached with little metal rings that allow them to move freely on the invitation.
I used the same patterned paper (Hobby Lobby) in blue instead of pink. Everything else is the same as on the pink ones. I made 20 of these bad boys. Whew! Hope she likes them... :)

Thanks for looking and have a creative day!

She'll love them!! They're adorable! I just love that little monkey. I love the way you did the sentiment too! Great job!

What a great sister and friend!!! :) I love the way you used leaf ribbon (where did you find that?)! And I wouldn't have thought of using such big polka dots for the background, but it's perfect! Super, super, cute!!!

Hi Jennifer! I got the ribbon at my local scrapbook store. I don't even know the brand, but I think I've seen it in either the Oriental Trading scrapbook catalog or the Paper Wishes scrapbook catalog. Hope that helps! :)
