DIY Ladybird Party Invite

Hello! I’m back and blowing the dust off this blog! Sorry it’s been so long. Life well and truly got in the way! I hope you are all well?!

I’ve seen a few of these ladybird invites around and wanted to have a go at making some. They are very cute and perfect for a summer party. (I’ve been very minimal and haven’t put any eyes on mine – but it would be easy to glue some wobbly eyes on if you wanted to).

I also thought this would make a great 30 minute craft project for young children so I’ve made a colour-in version that you can print off.

I hope you are all having a lovely summer. We are basking in the sunshine in the UK at the moment which is lovely!

  1. Hi Kate, Where do you get those teeny weeny split pins from? They are so much nicer than the “normal” size ones!

  2. Hi Louise,

    I got them from WHSmiths years ago. I would imagine that you can buy them in most larger craft stores. ^_^
