Girl's Weekend Invitations

My college roommate and sweet friend April has a birthday coming up, and her husband wanted to plan something special for her to celebrate. So (with the help of her sister), he planned a girl's weekend for April and a few of her friends. Isn't that so thoughtful?! Of course I couldn't wait to put together an invitation for it, and decided to do something a little different since I only needed to send a handful of invitations.
I had thought about doing a box invitation (like this) but wasn't completely sold on the idea. As luck would have it, I came across these burlap "pencil pouches" at the Target dollar spot, and decided they would be perfect for a girl's weekend theme. I personalized them by stenciling each girl's initial on the bag with craft paint.  For the invitation, I designed a little booklet and used my flourish punch to cut them out.
There were 4 pages containing all the details of what the weekend will entail, and I bound them together with a little rhinestone brad I had left over from these invitations. I think those brads can be purchased from Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
I picked up some of the e.l.f. pocket mirrors at Target for $1/each, and designed a label with each girl's monogram to go on the top. I also put a tube of my favorite e.l.f. lip gloss, also $1, in the bag.

I lined the bag with some fun tissue paper to finish out the inside and tie in the color theme.
And finally, I shipped them in these padded envelopes (also from Target) that perfectly matched the colors I was using.

I can't wait to celebrate you Apy!! :)
