How To Tuesday – Cereal Box Party Invitations

I finished all the invitations for Kurt’s 17th birthday celebration. As I said before he is having a Saturday Night Cartoon & Cereal party for his birthday. Mini cereal box invitations just seemed the most logical choice. I created a pdf file so you can make them for your parties too. You can either write in the info, or use a program like photoshop to insert the info of your party into the invites. Please remember this pdf is for personal use only and should not ever be sold. You can find even more of my digital/printable goodies over at kitschy digitals.

I had my pdf’s printed at Staples on card stock and cut them out with scissors. I did use a ruler and exacto knife to score all the folds, but they are pretty simple to make. I used a quick drying paper glueso they would dry rather quickly.

Once dry I opened up mini cereal boxes(you can get a 30 pack for $11) Of course the cereal is left in the sealed plastic bags they come in, but then you just slide it down inside the box. I added small toys to all of mine to make it even more fun. The boxes say “prize inside” so I picked up some cheap funny plastic teeth at Target (and those were slide in before the bag of cereal) And some mini wooly willieswhich worked the best because you just slide them down in beside the bag of cereal. Then I sealed the tops shut with glue.

I’ll have even more details about the party as it gets closer.

Working Wednesdays – Computer Work

I’ve got some super exciting parties coming up in the near future, which of course means invitations! I’m currently working on not one, not two, but three different party invites. Thankfully, its pretty fun work. Above you can see the invites that I am making for my son’s 17th birthday. Holy moly right? 17!! His party is going to be a “saturday night cartoons & cereal” party so for the invites I’m making little boxes of cereal, with real cereal & prizes inside. I’ll have a PDF to share with you soon in case you ever want to throw a similar party, and I’ll share some photos of the finished boxes when I am all done.
Oh and working on the cereal box was so much fun that I’ve started working on a fabric design of cereal boxes, I can’t wait to upload it over on Spoonflower :)
