Doctor Who Party Invites

I think when Doctor Who series 6 aired, the writers were just begging us to throw nerdy Whovian Parties. Tardis blue envelopes with an abundance of funky stamps all over? Challenge accepted. 
And if you're not a nerd, something I've now learned, you can decorate your envelope with whatever you want (even fake stamps) as long as there is a real stamp in the upper right hand corner! You don't have to be geeky to play with your mail.

Here is a screenshot of what we are aiming for:

I found this fantastic scrapbook paper at my local craft store. 59 cents for one sheet of 150 stamps? Yes please.

I also downloaded a few images from Google to stick on there too. Note: The 1st Doctor stamps (so cool).

Arrange your stamps how ever you want! I recommend doing them all the same because this can get time consuming.

I found Tardis blue envelopes and cards at the craft store they needed to be cut in half because the invitations in the episode were in postcard style. I used my paper cutter to do this because straight lines are no fun to do by hand. If you don't have a paper cutter I strongly recommend getting one, they come in handy for all sorts of things!

Lightly glue!

To dry: I pressed everything in a book and placed my cast iron pans on top to press the invitations (no wrinkles please!)
I used Google to find the actual satellite coordinates of my place. Don't forget to give everyone a number on the back of their envelope.
BYOB (Bring Your Own Banana) was my roommates brilliance! Though if your not a fan of the show, I'm sure you're scratching your head right now.

 All done!
