My daughter is adamant that she have a Minnie Mouse birthday party for her third birthday this year. I decided to agree because it does seem like a fun theme. I’m starting to plan a little early because her baby sister is due the month after her birthday. Since I’m going to have a lot of other stuff on my plate come this December, I needed to send the invites out soon.
I wanted to go ahead and share my handmade Minnie Mouse birthday invitations I whipped up quickly this weekend. It was very easy to make this custom birthday invitation, and it was made out of inexpensive materials!
Supplies for DIY Minnie Invitations:
- Cardstock (pink, or red would work too. I found mine at Michael’s)
- Vellum (with white polka dots. I actually got this from Hobby Lobby)
- Minnie Mouse ribbon (grabbed mine from Walmart)
- Double-sided tape, glue. and scissors
First, I decided I would make the invites small and cut an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of pink card stock paper into 4 equal size pieces. This way I could use small invitation envelopes.
I then made a quick Microsoft Word document with the information for the party using the Disney font. I included the date and time of the party as well as where it would be under “Come celebrate Kathryn’s 3rd birthday.” Also, I let guests know there would be snacks and drink but not a complete meal. This momma doesn’t have time for full meal parties!
After creating the invitation document, I printed it out onto polka dot vellum paper and cut the vellum papers just smaller than the card stock. Using double sided tape, I stuck the vellum onto the card stock at the top. If you don’t own any double side tape, glue will work, too.
Lastly, I found a wax seal kit on sale at Hobby Lobby that I just couldn’t pass up. Turns out doing those wax seals takes patience and a little bit of trial and error! Nonetheless, I put heart wax seals on the back of every invitation because it was still fun.
All done! Hope you enjoyed my M
