Pop-Up Carousel Invitation

Pop-Up Carousel Invitation

Carousel Envelope

An exceptional invitation experience

With the approaching annual Opera Ball fundraiser, the Houston Grand Opera wanted to create a unique and surprising experience for recipients of the invitation. The invitation arrived in an oversize envelope designed to look like parchment with a prominent logo to go with the theme of that year’s ball: “Carousel.”

Intricate details and handwork

As you open up the invitation, a stunning 3D carousel springs to life. A true masterpiece of folding, scoring and die cutting, the carousel features details like tiny carnival lights and fleurs-de-lis patterns. LasX did the laser die cutting, and Elation Press conducted the finishing and hand assembly for each of the 1200 invitations.
