How to create free birthday party invitations

Updated April 17, 2017

Birthday party invitations can come in many forms, from cartoon-themed to sports-themed to individualised. Rather than going to the store and picking up some cheap invitations for your guests, you can create birthday invitations without having to spend any money. You can use the Internet to make birthday invitations or at home, using items lying around or designing them with a graphic design application.

Use a website that offers free invitation templates to download and print. These websites usually have a vast selection of templates to choose from, even football birthday and ice-skating invitations. They are also practical for people who want to send out invitations via e-mail as fast as possible.

Unlock those creative juices in your head! Create your own handmade birthday invitations at home using ribbons, scissors, paper, glue and whatever else you can find at home. Combine them with your imagination and keep your wallet on the dresser instead of near a cash register.

Create a do-it-yourself card using Adobe Photoshop or another graphic design program. Attach it to an e-mail message about the party and send it out to the invitees. When people open the email they will see your graphic invitation as opposed to a plain text invitation.
