Free Easter Party and Egg Hunt Invitations

If you want fun free Easter invitations you can make at home, you've come to the right place.

Easter is such a festive time of the year, what with spring springing all around. Whether you celebrate the religious aspect of the holiday or not, it's a great time to use these free invitations to invite people over for Easter dinner or brunch to share in nature's bounty.

These free printable Easter party invitations can be produced in flat-panel, A7 or A4 format. For those not familiar with invitation-speak, that means they don't fold and they can be made at 5" x 7" (A7) or 3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″ (A4). You can also make them in any size you want that's proportional to that, if you're not worried about fitting a standard envelope size. There are three vintage designs: one with chicks in a country scene, one with a flower-covered cross and an Easter egg hunt invitation with a Mama rabbit and basket of Easter eggs.

I've included instructions for creating the Easter party invitations below, as well as videos that teach how to make Easter crafts, decorations and cupcakes. You'll also find links to Easter party supplies on Amazon, in case you want to do a lot of your party planning in one place.

Instructions for Making the Free Easter Party Invitations

1. Download the Easter invitation you like

Please read the Terms of Use below before you download any art. Then, click on an invitation thumbnail to the right and a larger version will appear. When you see the larger size, double-click on it. That will make an even larger version open in a pop-up window. If you use a PC, right-click your mouse and save the invitation artwork to your hard drive. If you have a Mac, control-click the image until you're given the option to save to your hard drive.

2. Paste the invitation image into software

As mentioned before, these Easter invitations are in the correct proportions to fit into A7 or A4 size envelopes. To fit those standard envelopes, the final invitations should be sized just slightly smaller than 5" x 7" (A7) or 3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″ (A4). If you'll be giving them out in person, though, you can make them any size you want.

If you own a publishing program, such as Quark or Publisher, you probably already know how to position the artwork for printing. But if you don't have to have one of those; you can use Microsoft Word. The instructions below are for a simple method using Word that puts one image on a page. You can also paste more than one invitation on a page by using text boxes or a table, but you need to know how to use one of those features to do it.

Locate the image you downloaded in step 1 on your hard drive and insert it into your document using Word's picture insertion feature. You can find this in Word 2007 by selecting the Insert tab and clicking on the Picture button. (Check the MS Word help menu for instructions if you have a different version.) when you click on the Picture button, a pull-down menu will appear that will allow you to locate the artwork on your hard drive and insert it.

Once you've inserted the art into your document, click the image to make it editable. Then, size it by using your mouse to drag one of the corners until the graphic measures 5" x 7" or any other size you want. You might find it hard to measure the art on-screen, so just get the size in the ballpark and print a draft copy. Once it's printed, measure the printed copy with a ruler and keep adjusting and printing it until it's the exact size you desire.

3. Print the invitations

Once the size is right, print as many invitations as you'd like using the heaviest cardstock your printer will allow. Verify the maximum thickness of card stock that will work in your printer by checking the manufacturer's Web site or the printer's manual.

4. Cut the invitations

For best results, use a paper cutter or have the invitations cut at a copy center, instant print shop or office supply store. If you'll be doing them yourself, be sure to look at the measurements on the paper cutter before you cut. You can also use a craft knife, ruler and cutting board; or in a pinch, you can use scissors. If you use scissors, make sure to draw faint pencil lines where you want to cut and/or use a pair of scissors with a decorative edge that will hide any cutting errors.

Terms of Use

You're welcome to use these free Easter invitations for your personal use or to make invitations for friends or family. But you may not sell the vintage versions of the artwork (the mama rabbit or the Easter cross), in any form, printed or digital, form them into a collection and give them away or incorporate them into products without permission. If you have a special request or any questions regarding these images, please contact Carla at info [@] vintageholidaycrafts [.com].

If you want to incorporate the three modern images (the chickens and chicks or flower vase versions) into products for sale or use them for anything else other than described above, please read the Picnik terms of service (available from a link at the bottom of Picnik.com), which governs their use.
