My favorite papercraft is creating handmade cards. I also love to make and create all things with paper. However, sometimes the best way to convey an idea is digitally. This is true for handmade invitations. Unless you are just adding simple text to a pre-made invite or only making a small number of “from scratch” invitations, digital is the way to go. I found a really cute background picture of the movie “Tangled.” This movie was and is very popular with young girls and makes a great base for an invitation. Using a picture of a popular movie makes it easy to coordinate your invitations, your thank-you notes, your paper supplies, and your decorations for the party. You could choose any background; one that works for a little boy, one that works for an adult party, or even make your own. Invitations are also a great project to show-off the Duetica Fonts. It is so easy to create your text, save it as a picture file and then import it onto your background picture. I hope this project inspires you to make your own invitations to match whatever party you are throwing!
