The Very Hungry Caterpillar Invitations- Take Two

This week is going to be a recap of the first birthday party, The Very Hungry Caterpillar Style. I have done a few things so far, you can see them here.

Take One Invitations are over at Arizona Mama. Click here to see them. I didn’t make enough of the salt dough caterpillars and I have been too lazy busy doing other stuff (for the party, of course!) to make more. So I made these.

I made them in paint, because I currently don’t have Photoshop. That means that they are easy enough for anyone to make them.

The caterpillar picture was found on a Google image search, I honestly couldn’t tell you exactly where it was found. I made it smaller and put it in the corner, and then found a cute font, called Aubrey, for the text. With paint you can only change where you want your text to be once, so make sure it’s perfect the first time. I used multiple text boxes. Also, I had my address on there, but for Facebook and here, I took it off. I did it by using a white box to cover up the old text and put in the new.

It took a little bit more time than Photoshop would, but it’s nice to use something that already comes with the computer.

I made it a JPEG and cropped it in Picasa, so that it was a 4×6 so I could have them printed as pictures.
