A First Communion is a special religious event in a child's life, the first reception of the sacrament mainly in Catholic and Protestant religions. Family and friends gather together to celebrate the event. Create First Communion invitations in the form of large 5- by 7-inch postcards with colour schemes for a boy or girl.

  1. 1

    Design the First Communion invitation using a word-processing program like MS Word. Create a text box that is 4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. Choose a font that is 16 points and add the wording, centred within the text box. The invitation should include:

    Name of parents Invite you to the First Communion of their (son or daughter) Name of child date and time Church name Address of church Reception following the ceremony Please RSVP by (date) Phone number for RSVP

  2. 2

    Add a copyright-free image of a cross on the top left part of the invitation. You will find these images on Internet websites. (See invitation sample above.)

  3. 3

    Print the invitation on white card stock. It is possible to print 6 to 8 invitations on the same sheet and cut them to size with a paper cutter. Make as many as you need.

  4. 4

    Cut the coloured card stock to 5- by 7 inches. It is possible to cut at least four (4) on one sheet. Suggested colours of heavy card stock are pink, blue, light green or pale yellow.

  5. 5

    Attach double-sided tape to the back of the invitation printed on white card stock and press onto the coloured card stock.

  6. 6

    Insert each invitation into an A7 envelope, address and mail. Check with the post office for the correct amount of postage.
