Making text fit, align and look nice on print-your-own invitations makes me crazy and I don’t think I’ll ever do it again! Here’s the invitation I made for my daughter’s birthday that were fun to create but almost made me crazy:
|For me, there’s always a fine line between having fun and “about to go crazy” with DIY.
I got this idea from Supermom.
I usually like to order custom invites but we were taking Easy Street for our baby boy’s train themed birthday by just having our immediate family over to celebrate. I still wanted to put something in the mail though! We were sending 10 invites so a fill-invitation would have been just fine, however that’s against my natural grain because I love paper and design so much. Maybe I could create an original fill-in invitation with stamps! I headed to Paper-Source (a place I frequent by foot and by finger so I pretty much have their inventory stored in my head) to get their “For Date Time Place” rubber stamp and I was sure they had a train stamp. Create your own fill-in invitation, this is Easy Street, tell it to your neighbor!
For a quick, no stress, hand written invitation, I love the way the DIY fill-in train invitation turned out! I had so much fun, I think I’ll do it again!
Here’s everything I gathered for ideas and inspiration before deciding to go small on our boy’s train birthday party. Somebody should use it, I think it’s cute stuff!

Wow! A train made out of refrigerator cardboard boxes.

If you feel like creating your own invitations, using the Paper-Source stamp was a pretty easy way to do it. Most importantly it was fun and it didn’t make me crazy. 🙂
Tell it to your neighbor,
