Star Wars Party Light Saber Invitations

Melissa at A Little Loveliness made some adorable Light Saber Invitations that I used as my inspiration to make the invitations for Jack's 5th Birthday.

To Make These Invitations, You Will Need:
toilet paper rolls or paper towel rolls
12 x 12 glitter paper
8.5 x 11.5 vellum paper
aluminum foil tape (found at Home Depot)
electric tape in black
scrapbook embellishments
hot glue gun & sticks
scrapbook adhesive
Print your party invites on vellum paper within a 4" x 5" space.  You can print two per vellum sheet.
Trim to 4.5" x 6".  (Double check this measurement just to be sure.)
I started with toilet paper rolls, but decided the paper towel rolls were a little bit easier.
Put a strip of adhesive on each end of the blank side of the vellum.  Wrap around paper roll. 

Cut your 12" x 12" glitter paper in half (you will have 2 - 6" x 12" pieces.)  If using toilet paper rolls, go ahead and roll your glitter paper.  I used an left over gift wrapping roll to get the right size. If using a paper towel roll, I left about .5" between the invitation and where I added the glitter paper.  This allowed for a little bit longer light saber.  Use hot glue to secure the roll.
Next add a 6"strip of the aluminum duct tape to the bottom of the glitter paper tube. Its super shiny, but also wrinkles.  I cut a 6" inch strip, then took off the backing and added it to the saber.
To connect the glitter tube to the toilet paper roll, use the electric tape.
To finish it, I added another piece of electrical tape at the base of the toilet paper roll, and buttons made from actual buttons and scrapbooking embellishments.

May The Force Be With YOU!

Visiting from a link in Tatertots and Jello. My son said "so, when ya gonna make me one!" His birthday isn't until May, so we may have to make one, just to see how it turns out. Good job.

these are so great (saw them on TT&J) - my son's birthday is in March (named Jackson and turning 5 - what a coincidence!) and he loves star wars at the moment....i may be borrowing this idea!!

How would one go about getting that font for the invitations?

Could you publish the invitations print? So we could just change the text and use the exact art ro print in vellum paper.
