Party Invitations: A Free File and evaluating CIRCUS TENT CARD by Jennifer Wambach Design ID #30188

I have been pinning all my party decoration wish list to my board on Pinterest and had to take a break and think about party invites!

So here are a few photos of what I would love to make:

I tend to get carried away, My sister-in-law, who is expecting, chose the tent invite with the ribbon. I will make these and you can also. The file can be found on The Silhouette Design Store  and is CIRCUS TENT CARD by Jennifer Wambach Design ID #30188: cost $0.50 I will enlarge the file as my first sample that I cut , was too small for my taste. Evaluation is at the very end. This is a really simple file so I kept it short.

In Brief: The file is worth it at $0.50 but it is easy to make your own card. It took two different cardstock blue and red , glue and ribbon.

I also printed a carnival invite  $0.50 using this  file

The card was easy to cut and assemble. You really did not need any instructions and can be done by young kids. The printed file was even easier. Both files get  47 out of 48 only because it needed ribbon and the other printing. Both file are worth it . If you have time on your hands and want to make your own… that is always an option!

I also really liked the Bendi/ Bendy Card and made a template for the circus version. This is mine. Notice the arms are not bending!

My template was a little off so I found a tutorial and fixed it. The free file link is HERE…note that the images included are created from Google free commercial use image or are my own. If an image is not included it is because it did not belong to me. Some of the images in the file need to be duplicated, for example, the balloons. The cutting files for the patterned paper did not fit in the file but I can send it if anyone wants. Also you can cut by hand or digitally create a rectangle smaller than each card piece and cut.
