This idea comes from our friend Ilyssa Minkus. They were sent to each guest as part of a "Let's Flamingle" birthday party. We paired our invitation with a green-lined envelope and tropical palm leaf motifs befitting of the theme.

  4. Glue two to three pink feathers onto wing; let dry completely.

  5. Place wing shape from template onto the flamingo body shape as desired. Then, poke the sharp end of a mini fastener through the layered paper and bend legs to secure the wing in place. Ensure that the wing can rotate upward to reveal message.
