Sparkly Party Invitation DIY

Need a little inspiration for any glitzy parties? These invites are easy, inexpensive and look so glamorous!

What You Need:

  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Ribbon
  • Glitter Paper
  • Mini Craft Gems

When I say inexpensive, I mean it… I found all the supplies for these at Dollarama! If you are ever searching for craft supplies, I recommend checking out your local dollar store as you never know what you might find there (and pay so much less than at some fancy pants craft store!).

  1. First, you need to cut the length of the ribbon for your bow. I used 4cm, 3cm, and 1.5cm lengths (you can adjust these to get the exact size you would like).
  2. Put a spot of glue in the centre of your ribbon piece – to find the centre I first folded the ribbon in half and had a tight squeeze to mark the centre.
  3. Fold the edges inwards, making sure they stick into the glue (you will need to work quickly with this part)
  4. Repeat steps one and 2 with the second piece of ribbon.
  5. You should now have 2 pieces of ribbon that look like this – one smaller than the other.
  6. Glue the smaller bow on top of the larger one.
  7. Wrap and glue the shortest piece of ribbon around the two others.
  8. Finish the bow with a gem.
  9. Glue your invitation text to the glitter paper across the top with a ribbon. Mine are handwritten since I don’t own a printer, but it is entirely up to you (I would recommend printing these out to save time and a sore hand!)
  10. Finish it off by attaching the bow to the centre with another dot of hot glue.

Have fun with these, and be pre-paired for glitter to get everywhere! (somehow, it manages that even when pre-glued to paper!)
