I have another fun tutorial for you that you can make yourself or with your kids. Today, I’ll show you how to make birthday party invitations.
To make it super easy to follow along, I’m sharing a step-by-step written tutorial and a video tutorial. If you want your kids to make these cards on their own, just hit play on the video. The video is embedded at the very end of this post.
Let me show you how I create fun birthday invitations.
Fun card stock
Scissors or craft knife
A greeting card
1. I used a small card as a template for my project. I began by laying it flat on top of my card stock. I traced the shape of the card onto the card stock and cut it out. Then I folded the card stock in half.
2. For the first card, I cut a few strips of washi about 8 cm long to create faux birthday candles. I cut one end straight across horizontally and the other end I cut on a diagonal. I did this with three strips of washi and stuck them to the card side by side. Using a black fine-tip marker and an orange highlighter, I created a faux wick and flame.
3. I used a fine-tip marker to write the words “happy birthday” on the card.
4. Using my label maker, I created these adhesive labels to go inside of the cards.
There are so many ways you can dress up these invitations.
