Dump Truck Birthday Party Invitation

If I had to list Tyler's favorite things, a dump truck would top the list. In fact, it was one of the first words he learned to say. I think he's drawn to them because his grandpa has one, and he is a BIG fan of grandpa! :) So anyway - I picked dump trucks as the theme for Tyler's upcoming birthday. I struggled with ideas for the invitations for a few days but this is what I finally came up with. The whole things is paper pieced (yep I did the pattern myself!) and the back "dumps" to reveal the party info below it The wheels are on Pop Dots for a bit of added dimension. The front reads: "Tyler is 2! Dump everything and truck on over for a party!" And along with the party info inside I made sure to say it was being held "at the Caldwell Construction site."
I did some surfing last night and have pretty much completed the planning for the party. I have to say, there are TONS of cute ideas for construction parties out there and I just may have to do this theme again when he's old enough to participate in some of the activities. But for now I'm keeping it simple - and will tell you all about it after his birthday when I will of course have some cute photos to include.

Really cute idea for an invitation. I like how the top panel turns to "dump" and show the info.
