Make Your Own Princess Invitations

Creating your own princess invitations to a princess party or event can be fun, cost-effective and easy. Here's how to make your princess party invitations that are fit for a queen.

Pick the Party Invitation Paper
You have many choices here, from paper pre-printed with a border that you can write on or put through the printer to construction paper, doilies or handmade paper. It all depends on what you plan to do. Do you want to start with pink paper and add the pictures and words? Do you want to add color to white paper? Will you be cutting the paper into a slipper or castle shape? Will you use your printer for the words and have your little princess decorate each individual invitation? Will your type of paper work well with the printer?

Invitation Themes

  • Doily Invitations: Information is printed in color on a clear label, cut in a circle and affixed to the center of a doily. Otherwise, the information can be handwritten with colored gel pens on a doily. You want to avoid markers, as they will bleed on a doily.
  • Slipper-Shaped Invitations: Cut out a slipper shape from pink construction paper or pink card stock. Decorate with stickers, glitter pens, sequins or stamps. Write the information in the center. You may choose to print the invitations first and then cut the slipper shape out afterward. Printing saves you from having to write the information many times and lets you choose a really curly font.
  • Castle-Shaped Invitations: Same idea as the slipper shaped invitations, but cut the invitation into the shape of a castle with the party information in the center. Decorate with drawings of princes, knights, unicorns and fairies. You can attach stickers or draw your own. Kids love to help decorate, so if you can print the invitations first, cut them out and then let the kids do the rest, you'll have perfect princess-themed invitations.

Add the Party Information
Don't forget to include the basic information invited guests will need to know: the guest of honor, the occasion, date, time, place and how to RSVP. Make sure that all the information, whether you printed it or wrote it by hand, is legible.
