Ideas For Making Birthday Party Invitations

Updated on October 10, 2016

Making birthday invitations for girls is simple to do if you have a computer. Crafters can also get old school, and just make their cards out of construction paper with pencils and crayons. How elaborate or simple you make the birthday invitations is up to you, but just keep in mind to ask the birthday girl for her feedback, or else she might not be so happy. If you birthday girl loves army themes, then she is not going to be happy if you pick out pink princess invites. So when creating the party invitations make sure to include feedback from the young birthday girl, which will ensure that the party is happy. If she finds out your want to send out invitations that do not have her seal of approval, then you might as well cancel the party in advance. Besides, you are the grown up and she is the kid, so why would you want to take over her ideas on how her birthday party should be? Include the young girl in your life in designing and creating the birthday invitations, and perhaps let her be in charge of this. The birthday invitations are all about allowing a young girl to feel like she is growing up, and that she can make a few independent decisions in her life.

Birthday party invitations can look similar to birthday cards that girls adore, but just make sure  the card is suited for the preference of the birthday girl in question.

Ideas On How To Make Or Buy Party Invitations For Girls

Below are a few ideas and suggestions on how to make or buy birthday party invitations for girls. I suggest always making your own invitations if you are on the creative side, but it is good to know there are a lot of affordable options for people who would rather just buy a package of cards.

Idea Number 1: Use Your Computer Photo Editing Software

Step 1:

Upload a picture you have drawn or taken to use on the front of the inviations.

Step 2:

Open your photo editing software to create a half-fold card.

Step 3:

Add text to the front of your card such as "you are invited," or change things up a bit by adding text like "happy birthday to the front of the cards.

Step 4:

Print out the cards and mail these in envelopes to the people on the invitation list.

Idea Number 2: Use Blank Birthday Cards As Invitations

In this economy many people are looking for ways to save money when throwing a party, so why not just use blank birthday cards you already have? Here are the steps.

Step 1:

Address each card to the person invited on the list.

Step 2:

Mail the cards out.

This method is very simple, and you will not have to rack your head about how to find the perfect invitations for daughter or niece's birthday party.

Idea Number 3: Purchase Party Invitations At The Dollar Store

The dollar store is a great resource for those who want to save money when purchasing party invitations. The only steps needed for this method are to find the party invitations, and then send these out to people on the invite list.

Idea Number 4: Purchase Party Invitations At The Thrift Store

A friend told me years ago how she found amazing stationery at the thrift store. Actually, I have seen some really nice stationery sets for sale at the thrift store in affluent areas because rich people there have to get rid of their stuff too, and you would be surprised the quality of stuff they donate. In years past my dad found some really nice wall art and art supplies for me at the thrift store in a well off community, so here are a few suggestions for those who want to take a road trip, and perhaps score some great stationery in the process. I am not guaranteeing you will find really cool party invites at the thrift store, but you might be able to pick up some party favors on your trip.

Step 1:

Use Google Earth to plan a trip to a thrift store in an affluent area.

Step 2:

Set aside a few hours so you can enjoy browsing the thrift store, and perhaps see some other sites in town.

Step 3:

Keep an open mind, and remember the other idea about how you can turn birthday invitations into party invitations. Any blank cards of quality would make amazing party invitations, so just look for something you might like.

Idea Number Five: Make Or Purchase Birthday Invitations On Zazzle

This option is a bit more pricey, but a good deal if you want customized party invitations for your party. You can upload any picture you have the rights to on Zazzle, and maybe even make a couple of bucks by selling your creations. I have been selling a bit of my artwork on Zazzle as of recent, so this is a good site for designing party invitations, or buying some if you are not in the creative spirit. So consider supporting an indie artist and purchase some zany and fun birthday invites on Zazzle.

Idea Number 6: Buy Birthday Invitations For Girls On eBay

There are many affordable and cute birthday invitations for girls available on eBay. Just take a look around their site, and you are likely to find a good deal for any budget.

      Thanks for sharing this hub with your niece!


      Yes, parties with a whole bunch of little girls can get loud and shrieky. People would never believe it, but I often see groups of little boys who are quieter when getting together than groups of little girls. I am sure your daughters loved you planning parties for them, though!
