A sweet invitation

One of my top priorities for Holly's party was a DIY invitation. Since Holly was only inviting a few little ladies, I could make them a little bit special...

My mom found this beautiful Origami paper at a yard sale a while back, which we simply folded into a delicate little envelope. In Holly's tea party inspiration post I mentioned these adorable play felt tea bags; I decided to use some scrap fabric and make some so the girls would have something to play with:

My sewing is pretty amateur, so I feel almost anyone could do this. I simply sewed up a shape of a tea bag, used some batting inside and used a piece of ribbon and a wooden button from the dollar store for the string...

What do you think? I'm pretty happy with them. My next project is decorations. Stay tuned for some budget decor ideas for a tea party!
