Design Tips

Thienly - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • Jewelry wires were used for the antennae of the ladybug. (adhered with glue gun)
  • Buttons were tied with twine before adhering to the flower.
  • Choose fonts to match with the party theme (so many free fonts online!) and choose fun sentiments!

See, aren't they fun?  I hope that I have inspired you to make your own invitations for your next party!
