How to make Custom Kids Party Invitations | PARTY DIY


My Daughters birthday has come up so fast and I promised her a Moshi Monster party but of course, I left things to late and forgot to order the pre-made party invites from the UK. errrr 

So today it was a mad rush to get some invites designed and made and still make the Birthday girl happy. Below is a brief tutorial on how to make some simple, cheap yet effective party invites to customise to any theme your child has their heart set on and not available at the shops.

HOW TO MAKE EASY CUSTOM PARTY INVITES AT HOME


First thing you need to do is design your invite. I used Adobe Photoshop  

Get on the internet and find a clear and simple picture which suits your theme. I needed a Moshi Monster design so it was easy to find something suitable. I asked my daughter to choose the font, she liked AR BONNIE and said she wanted each letter a different colour, which was a cute idea and worked well.

Make sure you make the page image size to match the card you are using so when you print it, it fits perfectly. Use the same font and page size to write up your details of the event for the inside of the card. Stick to the same theme and colours.

Once finished, print your design according to how many invitations you need.


Supplies you need to make custom cards
  • Blank cards & envelopes (I brought some cheap packets from a $2 shop)
  • Printer and blank paper
  • Cutting mat
  • Ruler
  • Stanley Knife
  • Glue stick that dries clear



Once printed all you have to do is to measure where you need to cut so they fit onto the blank card. I marked my cutting mat with a texter for quick cutting. When you are cutting make sure you hold the ruler and knife firmly and press down hard to avoid slipping and cutting yourself.

Next is to glue the paper cut-outs onto the blank cards. You could measure them and stick on perfectly but I just glued by eye.

AND YOU ARE DONE!!! 

Simple isn't it? and really not much work, Easy to make yourself at home on a quiet afternoon if you have basic computer schools and an art program to use on your computer. There is a free design app that is popular and easy called CANVA, you could also use this if you have no program.

You could add embellishments or anything you like really but for an 8-year-old really you don't need much, its not a wedding!!

The envelopes were a last thought and were a quick hand-drawn Moshi using a Sharpie Marker with each child's name on it. If I had planned this I would have just printed the envelopes but never-mind.
