In a few short weeks my little guy is turning 3! I cannot believe it, and I am so sad because he is not my little baby anymore. He is a happy, very active almost 3-year-old boy. Gosh time sure does fly. But this year he decided he wanted a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse party! If you know me at all then you know that I love to be crafty and make things for parties including the invitations, some decor items, and even the cake. I wanted to share with you all this cute little project that I did for his party invites. I originally found this idea celebrating birthdays but of course, I tweaked it a bit and made the invites my own.
Here is what you’ll need:
- Red Cardstock
- Black Cardstock
- White Cardstock (to print invites on)
- White Buttons
- Craft Glue
- Clear Envelopes (found these at Michaels)
- Mickey Mouse Character Stickers (to seal envelops, found these at Dollar Tree)
All in all this craft cost about $10 to make. I made about 20 invitations for his party but I still have a ton of supplies left over to make more.
- To get started, simply cut out a Mickey Mouse head silhouette. I used a small plate, and two cups to trace it. After the first one is traced and cut out, you can use this as a template for the others.
- Cut out half circles using the red cardstock. Again once,the first one is traced and cut, use it as a template for the others.
- Use craft glue to glue just the edges of the red cardstock onto the black Mickey Mouse silhouette. You want to have a pocket to slip your invite into.
- Glue white buttons on the front.
- Design and Print your invitations. I also printed little RSVP cards that were the size of business cards so the invites weren’t cluttered. I have special templates I made myself on my computer (I downloaded the Mickey and Disney fonts) so if you are interested in me creating them for you please Email me. Due to popularity (and lack of time), I am charging a small fee to create these and have them sent to you via email in PDF format (this is for the white circle containing your party information only, I do not make the entire invitation). This will ensure all fonts and formatting will stay in place and be less of a hassle for you. Minnie Invitations are also available upon request.
- Slip your invite into the pocket. Then place into the clear envelopes and seal them with the cute stickers.
Since these are in clear envelopes I did not mail them. I like being able to see them but you can use white envelopes so they can be sent via mail.
The finished project:
Stick around because I have more ideas coming for the perfect Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party!
