We LOVE our guys, right!?! So why should us girls have all the cute ‘Pinterest’ type fun with invites, will you be my bridesmaids, and bachelorette party goodies? Today’s project is for the BOYS! A fun and silly tutorial for a touching ‘bachelor party invitation’… guys will always be excited to party, but we think this will get them cracking up!

  • Lifestyle Crafts Evolution Machine
  • Lifestyle Crafts ‘mini-pizza box‘ die cut template

  • 8.5″ x 11″ text weight paper for design printout 
  • Krylon Metallic Spray paint in Silver
  • manly-looking washi tape

Dress up the usual silly boy toys with a coat of Krylon metallic silver paint (front and back), we think it makes them look more grown up! **After these have been painted, and you see them sitting on the dresser or counter – they look like they are made of stainless steel – it’s awesome!

While the paint on the toys is drying you can cut out your fun mini-pizza boxes! Perfectly appropriate for a bachelor party invitation… place the pizza box cutting template onto the die cut platform for the Evolution machine. Place your paper (6″ x at least 10″), design face down over the cutting template, then cover with the platform top. Place into the machine and roll it on through…

In a matter of seconds you will have a perfectly punched template. There is a random tab on the bottom of the template, which I found it easier to fold the box without – so cut it off…

Then using a firm scrapbook adhesive, fold and secure your darling pizza box!

Download the design above, three to a sheet. Print onto 8.5″ x 11″ text weight paper, either at home or your local print shop. Cut out each invite card on the lines… then fill in the party info!

Attach the card to the top of the box using scrapbooking adhesive like Glue Dots…
