Q:

How do you make homemade birthday party invitations?

A:

First, decide what type of invitation to send and the wording on the invitation. Include the date, time and location of the party as well as what the theme is and how to R.S.V.P. Then decorate and deliver the invitation.

  1. Decide on the invitation's design

    Birthday invitations can be a postcard, folded paper or a cut-out shape. Match the invitation to the party theme, if there is one.

  2. Gather your materials

    You will need paper, writing utensils, and decorative materials, such as paint or glitter. Thicker paper makes the invitation more sturdy. The materials can be in any color you desire.

  3. Prepare the paper

    Cut the paper to the size and shape you want. If you want a folded invitation, fold the paper to the desired size.

  4. Fill out the card

    Write out the details of the party on the card with a pen or marker. Include the date, time and location of the party. Add information about how to R.S.V.P. by email or phone. You can also include directions and mention if food will be served. Since it is a homemade card, you are free to decide on the wording and where to put the text yourself.

  5. Decorate the invitation

    Use paint, glitter or other craft supplies to decorate the invitation. Don't cover up the important information. Remember if the invitation will be mailed, it should be relatively flat.

  6. Deliver the invitation

    Deliver the invitation by mail or by hand.
