Parties are much anticipated events for a child, whether he is the giver of a party or attending the event. The excitement can be heightened by creating invitations that are designed as "tickets" to the "show." Ticket invitations are also appropriate for movie premiere parties and open houses for new business openings. Ticket invitations can be easily made from inexpensive materials.

Fold a piece of card stock in half, carefully matching the edges. You can also use a pre-made blank greeting card that has been folded for you (available in most craft and hobby shops).
Use a round shape such as a cup or lid of a plastic container to trace a rounded shape on each corner of the card stock. You will only trace a fourth of each circle, this is to create a ticket shape. Cut out each corner through both halves of the card.
Place an alphabet stencil on the card and trace "ADMIT ONE" with a black marker in the centre of the card. You can use large black alphabet stickers to create the words.
Open the card and write "To the birthday event of a lifetime!" inside the card, along with the time, date, location and RSVP information. You can change the wordings to suit the event.
Admit One Card
Cut a rectangle shape the size of a dollar bill out of a piece of gold metallic paper. With a black marker, write "ADMIT ONE" on the ticket. You can also add stickers in fun shapes to decorate your ticket if you like.
Glue the ticket in the centre of a piece of card stock you have folded in half. According to Beacon Adhesives website, glue that is specifically for paper is the best to use for metallic paper.
Write "You've found" with a black marker on the top of the card and over the golden ticket. Underneath the ticket write "a golden ticket!"
