Raigan's Birthday Invitations

I scoured the internet and pinterest to find the perfect invitations for Raigan's second birthday and found about a million that I would have loved to order, but couldn't justify spending the money and well frankly we just don't have the money to spend on birthday invitations. So I went ahead and printed my own and made some myself.

I ordered these Cricut dicuts off Etsy for a few dollars and found some cute wording ideas and typed up our own version in Microsoft Word.

I didn't want the ribbon to fray when I put it on the invitations so I cut strips of the ribbon the length of the invitations and then burned the edges with a large candle lighter. When I was done, I glued them to the top and the bottom.

 I glued the dicuts on and was pleased with the final product and only spent around $10 for all of the invitations, which was a way better price than the ones I had found online already done.

 Can't wait for my little two year old to enjoy her farm birthday party even if it's a few weeks after she actually turned two. 


  1. Oh my gosh! So cute!! You did a great job! Can't wait to see her party pics!

  2. Cow birthday!

    I saw Mom's invitation when we were at her house last night and noticed she had a pig on hers while mine had a cow. Didn't realize you used different animals. Great idea! And super cute of course.

    I think making your own invitations is awesome. If you design them well they look just as good as a lot of professionally printed ones anyhow.
