- Card stock
- Hole punch
Draw the outline of a tiara on a piece of paper or on the computer. Make copies. Or print out a copy of a tiara template from Houghtonmifflinbooks.com (see Resources). Use heavy card stock or half of a manila folder. Cut the tiara shape out of the paper using scissors.
Decorate the tiara invitation with sequins, craft rhinestones, glitter, glitter glue, paint, markers, sparkly crayons or coloured pencils. Make rows of fake gems and jewels, and leave no portion of the paper plain. The tiara should be decorative and fancy.
Fold the tiara invitation in half, and cut out half circles along the middle. Unfold the paper tiara and then fold it again as if you were folding it in thirds. Cut out circles and diamonds on the fold. Do the same on the other end. Save the scrap shapes, which are already decorated, to use as table decorations at the party.
Glue a plain child-size headband to the back of the invitation. The back of the tiara should be glued onto the front of the headband. Use new headbands from the local discount or department store. This will make the invite wearable for young guests.
Punch a hole in the side of the tiara and attach a silk ribbon. Thread it through the hole and tie a knot. Write the party details on a small piece of paper and roll it up, to look like a scroll. Punch a hole in the end and thread the other end of the ribbon through the hole. Wrap the ribbon around the scroll once, to keep it rolled up. Or, use a second piece of ribbon.
