With my children back in school, my inbox is just flooded with evites for birthday parties. Being the DIYer that I am, I always prefer to have something tangible, something which I can fret over, plan, design and hold.
You too may want an alternative to electronic or paper invitations. If so, how about:
These were the little invitations I did last year and handed them out to my daughter’s friends/classmates. The children squealed with delight and were besides themselves! I like giving children an invitation for them to hold – it is their very own piece of “mail”.
I designed the invitations (I blurred out some of the info, so please don’t think it looked like this!) and printed them out on very heavy paper that had a red and green design with small gems. Ugh, and do I WISH I had a boy! I have so many ideas for boy invitations involving dinosaurs, pirates, etc.!
If you can’t tell from the cookie, her birthday is in December; if anyone needs ideas for a December party, let me know and I’ll write a post on what I did for her birthday :-)
I hope you like my invitation as much as I enjoyed making them!!
