My baby’s 11th birthday is coming up and we decided to give her a swimming party with an Emoji theme.
As I will not be there, I volunteered to make the invitation.
I love making invitations from scratch. Not only is it cheaper, it is more personal and they are fun to make, too!
I started by designing the main invite and printing them out.
The next step was to prepare the “envelopes” or the cover. In this case, they are just folded colorful stock cards.
I wanted the envelopes/cover to be less serious so I had to cut waves on the top and bottom. I used regular scissors but it would have been a lot better if I have pattern scissors.
I then glued the main invitation to the colorful cover.
Of course, I blurred all the details in this photo for security purposes.
I then printed out emojis that I cut out. I think this is the hardest part of all. Cutting out the emojis took at least 30 minutes of my time.
Lastly, I glued the emojis to the invitation.
Don’t they look cute?
I spent around 3 hours doing all the 24 invitations.
