The Invitations


The invitations... these were simple DIY invites printed at home.  (Sadly, they are cuter without the bars blocking personal information, but such is life.)  Given the vibrancy of the background, I kept the invite rather simple with just a few coral accents and some bubbles.  The text was kept white except for the birthday girl's name and the number 3, both of which were accented in orange.  (Download Available Below)

I made envelope inserts again similar to the ones from the Owls and Books Baby Shower.  However, this time I designed the background myself (the same "Under the Sea and Turning 3" message) and printed it on adhesive paper.  This definitely adhered better than gluing regular paper.  However, it was also a little tricky to get into the envelope smoothly.  It was less forgiving and didn't allow for re-positioning.  (Download Available Below)

On the outside, I printed return address labels on adhesive paper.  They were cut out using my 1 1/2" circle punch.  It's hard to tell when I blocked the personal info, but the name was orange and the address was in white on the same blue background as the invitation.  I wrapped it ever-so-slightly around the edge of the invitation, but you could also just cut off any excess if you want the back clean.


If you want to create this yourself, keep reading.
