Creative Kid Party Invitation Ideas

Why spend the money on those boring party invitations that everyone uses when you can make your own?

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.

Handmade party invitations are not only fun and easy to make, but they are personal. Your kids will love making their own party invitations to hand out to all their friends.

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:

SPORTS
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.

CHARACTERS
If your kids love animated characters, use stickers with their favourites to create character-themed party invitations. Include bright borders and sticker confetti to add flare to the card covers.

PRINCESS
What girl doesn’t love anything princess? Use crown stickers, pink and purple confetti stickers, and heart punches to create pretty, princess invitations.

TEA PARTY
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.

Between big box craft stores and dollar stores, it’s not hard to get some great do-it-yourself invitation themes.
