A fun and unique party invitation can set the tone for any party, be it a birthday bash, a bridal shower, an anniversary party, or a wedding reception. While you can always go and purchase the invitations from any party supplies store, the best way to save a few bucks and add a unique touch to your party is by creating party invitations on your own. And the best part is that you can make it exactly the way you want! So, why search for the perfect party invite when you can make them in the comfort of your own home and have it modified to suit your style and the party theme. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to make your own invitations at home.
Design a Party Invitation
Decide on the Party Theme: Pick out the party theme based on the occasion. Based on this, you can model your party invitation. For example, for a Hawaiian theme party, you can use flowers and sand to create the party invitation.
Creative Designs: If you are creative and like to let your imagination run wild, then show off your talent by adding a personalized touch to your party invitations. There are many creative party invitation ideas that you can use to make your own invite. For a beach party, you can use the fun beach ball invitations, where you can use an actual beach ball to send out the invite. You can either choose to write down the party details or have them pre-printed. Similarly, for a princess party invitation, use designs of crowns, castles, knights, and swords, and decorate it with sequins and tassels. In addition, you can use gift bags for your party invitations and include various things that fit your theme, like a party hat or noisemakers. Use scrolls and stick it in a bottle to create a sense of adventure. For the ones crazy about sports, use bowling invitations, car racing, football, motorcycle invitations, Nascar themes, pool table designs, surfing, and golf themes for the invitations.
Accessories for your Invitations: You can jazz up a boring party invitation by using themed confetti, 3D stickers, and cotton balls. There is an amazing assortment of custom papers and embellishments at any craft store, that you can use to make your own invitations.
Printable Invitations: You can use any photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop or GIMP to create printable party invitations. Download pictures that you can use for the invitation and use them as the backdrop. Use the software to delete any unwanted text and insert the details of the party. Take a printout of your party invitation and stick this to a sheet of card or a thick paper. There are many more fun things that you can do with the party invitation, like removing people's heads and planting them elsewhere, like on animals or celebrity bodies. You can also distort people's faces by making their eyes swell up or elongating their chin to add a comic element to the invitation. If you do not have the necessary computer expertise, then just pick out a printable party invitation from any of the free card making web resources.
Party Invitation Wording: While making a creative party invitation with fun designs, we tend to forget the content. While you can get creative with your party invitation wording, make sure to include the:
  • Name of the host
  • Date
  • Time
  • Place
  • Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Dress Code (If any)

Making these invitations is really simple and customizing it to suit your taste, even more so. Therefore, whatever be your choice of invitation, make sure to match it with the theme and add a fun element to your party.
