Yep FREE birthday party invitations that are also awesome. These are 5 x 7 invitations that you can customize with your birthday party information.
Last year when we uploaded printables for Ramona’s airplane party, the number one question we got was “Can we have the birthday party invitations too?”…. Unfortunately, I lost the file and didn’t feel like recreating it. Not that I’m lazy, but it isn’t a simple process.
Above is the invite I designed for this year’s party. Before I got going I wanted to do one that anyone could download, customize, and use (for personal use obviously). I made two copies this year – one boy-ish, one girlish – that would allow people to change (most of) the text like the name, date, etc. Some of the type treatments had to be dropped, but I think they still look pretty splendid.
To download and use these party invitations just right-click and select save-as for the invite you want – pink or green. If you click on the invite, it will pop up as a pdf and won’t allow you to input your information properly. Remember right-click and select the save-as option to be able to customize the invite.
We’ve seen some issue with the Preview app on Macs, so don’t use or it will look weird. Make sure you open the file in Adobe Reader. You can select “highlight existing fields” to show the areas where you customize your text. Note the background is still the same blue. It’s only highlighted to show you where to pop in your child’s name, date, and location to personalize the invitation to your party specifications.
If your computer doesn’t default to Adobe Reader, then right-click your saved invitation, select “open with” on the menu, then click Adobe Reader.
These invites would work great for a circus or animal party too! We went with an elephant because the Fort Worth Zoo welcomed 2 (!!!) baby elephants this year. Can you imagine being the mother of twin elephants?
Amber is over at A Bubbly Life sharing her tutorial on Ramona’s lace crown. Make sure to check it out.
We will be back tomorrow with 1 more birthday DIY with printable!
