Arrrrrr, ahoy matey!
My son finally choose a theme for his birthday party and we are going all out pirate! While I was researching party ideas we came across these cool pirate party invitations that recycled 16 ounce water bottles. With his help we came up with our own version of a message in a bottle.
Aren’t they cool! We rolled up the invitation and tied it with some red ribbon. The kids had so much fun distressing the pirate invitations. Check it out!
I found that cool pirate font on dafont.com. It is called Rapscallion. Check out the back of the invite. I found some free downloadable pirate clip art and came across this pirate map.
After we printed the invitations on our home computer, we distressed the invitations using the following techniques:
- Crumpled the paper and then smoothed out with our hands.
- We ripped each edge of the paper.
- Used the Tea Stain distressing ink on the paper edges (front and back) and rubbed it across the paper.
- Spattered a few drops of Tea Stain re-inker.
- Used the Color Spritzer tool along with an Always Artichoke and Early Espresso marker.
- Rubbed a little bit of Navy distressing ink over small areas of the invitation.
These pirate invitations were a lot of fun to make and a big hit with all his friends! I’d love to know what you think of these invites! Leave a comment below and let me know!
