DIRECTIONS 1 – Print the printable invitation on white printer paper. Cut out the invitation and pen in the party details. 2 – Print the bookmarks and cut out. 3 – To make bookmark tassels: wrap 2 metres of twine loosely around the palm of hand, pull off gently the looped twine and tie together in the middle with a small piece of cut twine. Cut the loops on either end. Fold over in the centre, and tie a small piece of twine 1cm below the top loop. 4 – Pierce a hole in the bottom of the bookmark and thread an end of the twine of the tassel through the hole and tie a knot. 5 – Cut strips of washi tape 3cm in length. Fold over half over the twine and stick together. With scissors cut a swallowtail to finish off the ends. Repeat 4 more times spacing the washi tape flag every 1cm. Tie a knot at the one end, and thread the other end through a hole pierced through the hot air balloon basket motif on the invitation. Tie a knot at the end on the underside of the card. 6 – Place the invitation and bookmark in an envelope, seal and address accordingly.
