Since we are just having a small family party I only needed about 4 and could make them myself. I saw a few similar versions then set to work. This might not be the very best way to make them but it is definitely the easiest.
- black scrapbook paper (I got five sheets for a dollar at Michael's during a sale...3 black and 2 other colours for other party decor)
- white computer paper
- computer and printer
- ribbon (on sale 50% off + 25% off at Michael's and I will use the rest for another project)
- lighter (this is to melt the ribbon and prevent fraying...you can use any warming tool)
Next, I downloaded a free font call Walt Disney from Urban Fonts . I opened this in photoshop and typed my text. Since I didn't know exactly what size I needed I saved it as a jpeg and inserted it as an image in a word document to play with the size until it was the size I wanted. (*If you know how to do this properly please email me and I will gladly update these directions for others.*) I then printed the number I needed and cut them into circles.
Once the circles were cut, I glued them on the Mickey cut out. I then made wholes in the top with my scissors and laced the pink ribbon through. Remember to burn the ends for just a second to prevent the ribbon from fraying. Finally, I tied the ribbon in a bow and cut them to the right length.
Done and done. I would estimate with left over materials it cost me $1.00 for four invitations. Unfortunately the party was delayed so that date is wrong but they are pretty none the less!
