Lego Pirate Party: Invitations

LEGO Pirate Party Invitations

For our son’s LEGO Pirate Party a couple weeks ago, I made the invitations myself.

I was inspired by this design by Delia Creates. We had already purchased a couple pirate style minifigures from the “Build a Mini” tower at the Lego Store locally to use for the goody bags. I positioned one of the minifigures onto a white foam board from the dollar store. [I love this foam board for photography because 1) it’s cheap at a dollar per board and 2) it has a matte finish.] Then snapped a couple of photos leaving a good bit of white space to add the invitation text.

In Photoshop, cropped the image to 4×6 300ppi and removed the background. Then added the details including party date & time, location, and, a variation on our typical “no presents” note. [No, we aren’t mean parents – with 3 sets of grandparents plus numerous aunts & uncles, I promise he still gets plenty of gifts.]

Next, I simply printed out the design onto 4×6 photo paper on our home printer. I wanted to add a little pop of color, so I dug around in my scrapbooking paper and selected 3 brightly colored 12×12 sheets. I used a ruler to lay out the lines to cut three 5×7 rectangles from each sheet.

Then I glued the photos onto the colored card stock centered left & right, but down just a bit from center, and finished off with a small piece of black polka dotted washi tape.

Finally, I placed them into leftover 5×7 envelopes leftover from our Christmas cards!

Simple. Quick. Easy.

This was also one of my least expensive invitations to date. The only purchased item was the LEGO minifigure which was later given away as part of a goody bag to attendees. Everything else I had on hand in my crafting stash.
