These are Birthday Weekend invitations for my nieces and nephew. We have them over every year and spoil the heck out of them!
I made a couple of simple invites at first, a scroll and a treasure map, but then I went a little too intense for a couple years.
They are all made out of Poplar, glued up and turned on my mini lathe. I painted with everything ranging from textile paint, to airbrush, rattle can, and Testors enamel model paint.
If it looks like it moves it does, I really enjoyed trying to make everything do as i imagined.
The coolest thing is all of the kids really liked them and still have them. I hope someday they can share them with their own kids.
-- Im so impressed with what people can do, and I wonder how they do it. Thats what keeps me doing it.
