How does the organization of any holiday begin? Of course, with the list of guests. And when the list has already been drawn up, the invitation cards come round. Here, many people go the simplest way – they buy ready-made cards in the store, sign and send out or give out to guests.
This option is also possible if the birthday is already on the nose and there is no time to create a unique postcard design. But every parent wants his child’s holiday to be special, so the option with standard invitations will not work. Yes, and the birthday party will be a lot of fun, the process of creating invitation cards with their own hands on their own holiday.
To get original and unusual postcards, you need to make invitations to the children’s birthday party with your own hands. And it’s nice to include this imagination. And we only give you some ideas on creating postcards that inspire you to the creative process.
Before embarking on creativity, one must acquire all necessary. Whatever option you choose, in either case you will need:
- cardboard or heavy paper;
- pen, pencils or markers.
If the design of postcards is planned non-standard and interesting, you may also need: corrugated paper, bows, beads, ribbons, lace, sequins. Well, in order to attach all this beauty, you need to have a glutinous gun, a punch, a stapler on the farm. This is not a complete list of materials that may be useful, but they will be enough to make beautiful invitation cards.
Choose the shape and color
If you do not want to bother, choose your standard square or rectangular shape. This form is also beneficial in terms of saving material – cutting a large sheet of cardboard into rectangles, you will get a minimum of waste. You can make an ordinary single postcard, or you can bend it in half to open it.
Well, if the standard option you think is too banal, make a postcard of some more creative form. Here are a few ideas for a note:
- for girls;
- for boys;
Such blanks can be cut twice as much as required by the invitation cards, and fasten them together, for example with a ribbon. Then you get invitations that you can open.
As for color, then it is desirable to make his choice depending on the theme and color decision of the holiday itself. After all, for that, we choose the theme for the holiday, so that even such details as invitations can withstand in one style. It will be illogical if you make blue invitations for the children’s birthday in the style of ladybug.
When the color and shape are selected, it’s time to start working on postcards. First of all, you need to buy a base material. It is better to choose thick paper or cardboard so that your invitation card is not wrinkled during transportation. If you make colored postcards, choose a cardboard color – so you do not have to paint it in the right color. Next we take the template of the form that was chosen the day before and we circle it on the cardboard. After that, it remains only to cut out and ready for postcards.
To fill a postcard, on the workpieces we need to draw lines in which we will write the text of the invitation. Such lines can be drawn by hand, and you can print on the computer and paste on top of the workpiece.
When there is space for text, you can proceed to the very text of the invitation.
What must be in the invitation?
Date of the event. After all, the invitation itself is a message about when the celebration will take place. A guest may know when the birthday has a birthday, but there are times when the celebration takes place on a different day, so you need to tell the date.
Time spending. Another mandatory invitation props. Be sure to specify the start time of the holiday.
Location. Let it be your house or children’s cafe, in any case it is worth it to register in a postcard. If you celebrate in a cafe or restaurant, it is desirable to specify its exact address so that the guest knows exactly where he should go.
The main components of the text we already know, but the originality of the invitation is given a creative approach to the text. Here are some examples of an unusual invitation:
Beautiful princess! Come to us on the ball, dedicated to Birthday … .which will take place … ..in ……
Secret message to a secret agent …… We are waiting for you at a meeting of scouts in honor of Birthday ….
Hello my friend! Waiting for you on a merry birthday, which I will celebrate … in … Come, it will be fun!
Depending on the chosen theme of the holiday, you can come up with your own version of the text.
After that, you can already start attaching different beautiful things. The main thing here is not to overdo it. Let it be a couple of bows or one ribbon and bead, because if you need to send invitations by mail, then they should not be too voluminous and without problems fit in the envelope.
If you do not have the time or opportunity to create postcards, but you want original invitations for a children’s birthday, the templates will come to your rescue. They are easy enough to print, enter your text, and the cards are ready.
These templates are suitable for the girl’s birthday. Delicate, in pink tones, with hearts and flowers, they will surely appeal to small guests.
But such cards will be appropriate for the birthday of the little gentleman. The first option is for automotive subjects, the second and third are more neutral.
Such a postcard will suit both the boy and the girl, so if there are children of both sexes on your list of guests, then take such a universal option.
And this option is suitable for those who do not have a home color printer. Black and white postcards will look stylish, but if you want, you can paint them manually. This option is simple and will appeal to your birthday.
Whichever variant of the invitation cards you choose, the main thing is to put your soul into your creation, then the visitor who received the postcard will feel it and understand how it is expected at the event. A birthday boy, who produced invitations with his own hands, will wait even more for the upcoming Birthday, because he also took part in his organization.
