Cowboy Invitations

Before I got a Craft Robo or even a handy ATG gun, I had an X-acto knife and a glue stick...




The boys wanted a cowboy-themed party for their fourth birthday and I contrived this somewhat over-elaborate invitation.

As you pulled the tab on the right, the bucking bronco and cowpoke rode across the desert. At the same time, information about the party was revealed on the tab.



In retrospect, it wasn't a bad invitation, really! The tab's a little stiff and could use some work, but it was pretty cute back then...



I got a kick out of finding old Lone Ranger comic art and substituting my own quotes in place of the Lone Ranger and Tonto's conversation for their thank you notes....

Really cool stuff but...
Tonto? Is that a name? In spanish it's an insult, it means stupid.
This is funny though
