DIY Birthday Invitation

For my daughters birthday I thought about ordering birthday invites but of course I thought to myself, I know I can do this for much cheaper and I did. I bought a pack of 50 note cards (included envelopes) from Hobby Lobby. They're regular $9.99 but of course I used a 40% coupon paying only $6 for them. I came up with a design using Word and made sure the paper size in Word match the size of my cards. The cards (folded) are 5" x 6 1/2" so in Word I made sure my paper size was set to 10" x 6 1/2" which is the size of an open card. After printing out my cards here's what I came up with...

The main thing I had to make sure of is that I inserted the paper back into my printer to ensure that the printing came out without the words being upside-down on the inside. After printing my invitations I added little butterflies to the inside of the invites. I created the butterflies using a Fiskars 1" butterly punch I found at Joann's...on sale.

I loved making my own invitations. I'll definitely use this idea making cards in the future. I still have to make thank you cards for everyone that came to the party!
