Spy Party Planning

My younger son decided he wanted a spy themed party to ring in his 6th birthday. I always love his clever ideas! I searched Pinterest for some ideas and here's the invite I just created.

I made the text of the invite with all the details on my Silhouette Cameo and printed them. Then I used this Martha Stewart link to print the Red Squiggle Design Template as the overlay to make it a "secret message". I printed over top of the already printed pages and then turned the pages and printed once more to add more squiggles. I thought simple manila envelopes with a "Top Secret" stamp added an extra element of spy theme and were easy to find on Amazon.

I created a "secret decoder" using a magnifying glass design on my Silhouette and cut on black cardstock. I found red cellphone sheets on Amazon here and cut circles also using my, I love that machine! I then just glued the circles on the back of each magnifying glass using a thin glue gun. Now each child (and parent) can decode the secret party invitation message using their secret decoder!

Super simple and turned out oh so cute!
