America's Party-Perfect Patterned Invitations


Classic bandanna motifs are the inspiration behind this lively redo of plain stationery. Rubber stamps in a slew of shapes -- stars, floral patterns, and other doodads -- do most of the work. For dots, use a regular black-ink pen and/or a white-paint one. Some tricks to keep in mind: To mimic the look of an actual bandanna, create a repeating pattern. If using two stamp-ink colors, always let the first color dry before applying the second. When stamping on dark colors, make sure to use white ink.

    I am SO tired of the lack of instructions and limited details of MS crafts! I love the ideas and creations but they are ridiculously difficult to DIY!
