Homemade princess party invitations give the birthday girl a chance to set the tone for her own party. She can pick any theme or style she desires: After all, she gets to be princess for a day.
Basic Supplies for Party Invitations
Head out to the craft store to pick up scissors, craft glue, card stock (white and colored), colored pencils or markers, glitter and other decorating supplies. A small craft knife is handy, as well as decorative stickers and hole punches.
Cinderella's Castle Invitation
Supplies You Will Need:
Card stock in pink and white
Tiny pictures of a princess
Hot glue gun
Small gold beads
Fold the pink card stock in half. Print out or draw a castle shape that will fit on the front of the card. Make sure it has windows you can cut out.
Color and cut out the castle. Cut out the middle of the window sections and door if there is one. Glue behind each window opening a tiny picture of a princess (or knight). Use the other half of the pink card stock to make another castle, and keep going until you have enough castles for all the guests.
Fold enough white card stock in half so you have the right number of invitations. Now glue the pink castles to the front of each white card. Glue the tiny gold beads on the castle in various places such as the points of the castle roof, and let your princess add glitter where she likes. Give the glue enough time to dry before adding any invitation information.
On the inside of your card, write out your invitation. If you aren't confident in your penmanship, type up the information, print it out several times on your computer, cut it out and paste it on the inside of each card. Be sure to include the date and time. Include special instructions if you want all the guests to come dressed as princes and princesses.
