Birthday Week: Invitations

Hello WR fans! Carrie here today to share with you a fun birthday invitation. Birthdays are always special and fun for your child, so here is a fun way you can get the birthday boy or girl involved in making it a bit more fun (that’s how simple these are to create!). These invites are super easy to make and you can actually make them with those scraps you are hanging on to. I made mine with scraps from WRMK Cakes and Candles line.

First you are going to take your cardstock and cut it down to 5 1/2 inches by 11 inches. You will need 2 pieces cut in this size. Once you get those, score and fold them in half. Next you are going to cut on one side from your bottom corner on a diagonal to your center crease. Do this for both pieces of cardstock.

After you get both pieces cut line them up and adhere together.

Next fold each side over and adhere. Make sure you get as close to the bottom as you can since you will be inserting a removable invite in this pocket.

Now the fun part…decorating! You can decorate these however you like, you can go simple, you can go fancy, however you decide to do them  just make sure you are having fun!

As you can see, the invite fits right into the pocket and ready for the recipient to pull it out to find out where and when all the fun will be had!

WR Memory Keepers Party Hat 12×12 Patterned Paper from the Cakes and Candles line
WR Memory Keepers Gift Wrap 12×12 Patterned Paper from the Cakes and Candles line
WR Memory Keepers Balloons 12×12 Patterned Paper from the Cakes and Candles line
