If you have a daughter you know how much little girls love birthday parties whether it is their birthday or someone else’s. If you have a daughter with a birthday coming up soon you might be wondering whether you should buy pre-made birthday invitations or maybe both of you make homemade birthday party invitations.
If it is a small party buying pre-made birthday party invitations is less expensive than making birthday party invitations. If your daughter is going to be inviting half the kids from her class, a few of the other kids from her school, and of course her five best friends from that extra curricular activity she does making homemade birthday party invitations will be much cheaper.
Like every other party you will probably be having a themed birthday party. If you don’t have a specific theme then sending generic do it yourself birthday party invitations will be a snap. Here are some ideas of how to make a home-made birthday invitation for your little girl:
1. Decide on theme or colors for your little girl’s birthday party.
2. Decide whether you want your homemade birthday party invitations for your daughter to be made by a computer or by hand.
3. Buy construction paper or computer paper that is the same color as your theme for your little girl’s birthday party or paper in any color that can be printed on by the computer and show printed colors for your homemade birthday party invitations.
Last step is to make your own birthday party invitations for your little girl. She will probably want to help.
Using a computer:
If you are going to make birthday party invitations for your little girl’s birthday party using a computer you can search the theme or colors of your daughter’s birthday party theme on the internet. There are all kinds of websites that will let you print invitations for free.
If you don’t want to print the invitation or you can’t find the invitation download a picture of the theme for the birthday party. For example your daughter’s birthday party theme is My Little Pony. Download a picture of My Little Pony. Save it to your computer and then print it onto your computer paper.
You will be able to adjust the size of the picture so if you want to use one 8.5 x11 paper for an invitation you can print the picture half that size. I recommend getting at least two invitations per sheet of paper.
After you print your invitations then you will need to cut the paper to separate however many invitations you printed to one page. If your little girl is old enough to use scissors you might let her participate by cutting her homemade birthday party invitations. Then all you need to do is write date, time, and rsvp on invitations unless you printed them on the invitations while in your computer’s printer.
If you are going to make homemade birthday party invitations by hand you can use the construction paper to make your invitations. For the inside of your invitations you can either print out the information on your computer, then cut and paste it to the inside of the invitation or you can write the information on the construction paper. I suggest printing the information on computer paper and cutting out the information and pasting it into the construction paper.
There are several ways to decorate a construction paper birthday invitation. You can either print pictures and paste them on your little girl’s birthday party invitations or buy stickers coinciding with the birthday party theme to stick on your daughter’s birthday party invitations. However you decorate your homemade birthday invitations you may want to let your little girl help.
