When it comes to party invites, I generally err on the side of a flat, simple card that I can just get printed and sent. Our Etsy shop is full of that kind of invite and it’s easy and I love it! But, what I love even more is added texture and fun/surprising elements. The only reason I don’t usually include these kind of parts to my party invites is simply because of time and money constraints. But, today I’m sharing a solution to that problem! Easy, easy popup invites!
These invites aren’t complicated at all, in fact you simply use honeycomb balls, which you can find at any party supply store, to get the popup effect! No crazy steps or intricate paper crafting to get this amazing wow factor.
And, I’ve created printables already for you that are free to use. They feature an adorable little boy or a girl, use whichever suits your party needs, in a cute little vintage style. The simple black and white, sketched style makes the invite not seem overwhelming with too many details and can also be super cost effective to print, since they don’t need to include any color.
I am just so in love with these sweet little invitations and I’m pretty sure I’ll use them soon for some fun party! I wish I had while I was growing up because I swear bubble gum was like MY THING :D
You could even do a variation of these invites using a photo of the person being celebrated. I love the idea of actually loading in a picture and still adding the fun honeycomb pop up element! If you go this route, just get a full frontal picture, load it into a photo editing program on a document in either 8″x6″ size or 10″x7″ size, this will result in cards that can be folded into 4″x6″ or 5″x7″, respectively, and will make your life so much easier since those will then fit in common envelopes.
For the front, we also provide a simple free printable or you could add your own embellishments after you’ve printed it, it’s just up to you! I love the idea of having your child, if that’s who the party is for, write a to and from on the front in their own handwriting! Just do what works and what you like and have fun!
