You can print these invitations at home!
They have been added to my Etsy shop!
I've been working behind the scenes to get ready for my oldest son's upcoming 4th birthday party.
Per his request, we're doing a superhero theme featuring Batman, Spiderman, and Superman.
I think I may have actually created a party monster because when we started discussing his birthday party,
he told me he wanted "a Spiderman cake, Superman celebrations (meaning decorations),
and Batman somewhere." And the entire time we were talking he was gesticulating wildly with his hands. :)
Make a mommy proud! *wiping away a single tear*
So let's get this party started with a look at the birthday invitations!
I decided to create a newspaper invite Daily Planet style.
(If you're not geeky like me, the Daily Planet is the newspaper Clark Kent worked for.)
(And if you're really not geeky, Clark Kent is Superman's alter ego!)
The invitation measures approximately 5.25"x7.25" so I was able to print two invites per sheet of cardstock.
I found my gray cardstock at Hobby Lobby.
It is sold by the sheet so I just waited (impatiently) for it to go on sale and snagged several sheets.
The cardstock is textured on one side and smooth on the other.
I printed on the smooth side.
I simply trimmed the paper down around the edges then cut the cardstock into 2 invitations.
To complete the look I wanted I folded the invites to look like a smooshed version of a rolled newspaper.
Simply fold the bottom of the invite 2/3 of the way up then fold the top of the invite up and over the bottom.
I think it turned out pretty cute!
And, most importantly, my son loves it.
I tried to add as many extra touches as I could to give the feel of a real newspaper.
I even added "endorsements" and "advertising logos" to the bottom of the paper.
All superhero related of course!
All in all, I am super pleased with how it turned out!
And I wonder if anyone will take me up the option of wearing your favorite superhero logo to the party...
Time will tell!
And I'm happy to be selling these in my Etsy shop!
