Why should you spend your hard earned money on those boring party invitations that everyone uses when you can make your own! Not only will you save money, but you will help add a special touch to your childs party. Plus if your child is old enough you can make it a fun event and work on them together, adding a little 'personal' touch to each invitation.
Scrapbook stores are the perfect place to go when you want to make your own party invitations. All you have to do is visit a scrapbook supply store and your creativity will spark with ideas.
First, start with the basics: blank 3”x5” or 4”x6” cards. You can find these in any scrapbook supply store. They come packaged with blank envelopes. Next, browse the aisles and buy stickers, punches, markers, and whatever other fun things you see to make your party invitations in the following themes:
Use soccer, football, basketball or baseball stickers or page sets. Create a fun sports theme on the front and include the party information inside the card.
If your kids love animated characters, such as Elmo, Rugrats or Lazy Town, use these to create character-themed party invitations. Include bright borders and sticker confetti to add flare to the card covers.
What girl doesn’t love anything princess? Use crown stickers, pink and purple confetti stickers, and heart punches to create pretty, princess invitations.
You can find cute teacup page sets and use these to create pretty invitations. If you want to get really fancy, trace a teacup template around the outside of your blank cards first. Then cut the cards to make them look like teacups. You might even include a fancy napkin inside the card.
