First, print out your invitation with your printer. Easily type up an invitation in Word and print it out. Trim your invitation down to the size of your envelopes, mine are 5×7. If you keep your text simple, by adding a little watercolor, your invitation will look chic and modern.
Next, paint on your invitation. There are dozens of ways you can decorate your invitations like: watercolor ombre effect or have some more defined free-hand geometric patterns. Mix it up, send a pattern to one friend and an ombre wash to the other. These invitations can be customized and perfect for a party any time of the year!
Each invite becomes it’s own piece of art!

Have you ever made your own invites?

    These are amazing! I’m obsessed with watercolor, and with all 3 of my kids having spring/summer birthdays, these are perfect. Parties are expensive enough as it is.

    I’ve made my own envelopes before but never tried my hand at invitations. Love these!

    In my calligraphy class we made bleeding tissue paper paper that could be made into cards. As soon as I seen this I said I’m going to try it. I made a couple of framed quotes out of mine. I will use it for invites and see how it works.
