DIY Hello Kitty Birthday Invitation

January 15, 2014 in Party Ideas, Uncategorized

Last weekend we wrapped up my daughter’s week-long birthday celebration with a very Hello Kitty birthday party! It was such a fun day and I am so excited to share all the DIY elements with you. To kick things off, here’s a look at our DIY Hello Kitty birthday invitations!

These invitations were simple to make and were such a special touch to set the theme of the party! I sketched a quick template of Hello Kitty’s head and then traced and cut out the number of invitations I needed. Next, I cut out black ovals for Kitty’s eyes, yellow ovals of the same size for her nose, and black strips for whiskers and glued them on each face.

 I then wrote a little birthday poem and whipped up this design with the party details to print and paste on the back of the invitations.

 Lastly I punched two holes at the base of the right ear to clip a sweet little hair bow (found at Hobby Lobby) to. Emily was so excited to deliver them to her little friends and it was neat to see all the little girls show up on the day of the party with their hair all done up in their little bow!
