How to make Mickey Mouse Invitations.

Mickey Mouse Invitations

My little guy is going to be a big bad 1 year old very soon and that means that it is time to pick a theme and plan a party!

I have been on a Mickey Mouse kick lately and cannot seem to get enough Disney in my life. I am even thinking about having the boys bathroom be a Mickey Mouse bathroom…. But that is another DIY project all in itself. It is no wonder than that when it came to picking a theme I chose Mickey Mouse.

I looked online and I looked in stores and I decided that I could make the invitations myself. I like to think that I am a crafty person and that invitations are within my realm of capabilities. So I got down to business and started crafting!

The first order of business was finding the right font. I really wanted a Disney font for the invitations to keep with the whole Disney Mickey Mouse theme. I got online and Googled Disney fonts and found a fabulous FREE Disney Font! I downloaded the font and saved it to my computer desktop {so it would be easy to find}. I extracted all of the Zip files and installed them on my computer so that I could use them in a Microsoft Word document.

I opened up a blank word document, selected my font, and got to work. I typed up my invitations and printed them onto cardstock paper. I took out my scrapbook paper and got to work cutting and pasting Mickey shorts onto the back of each invitation. I even added real buttons with adhesive circles!

Tada! My Mickey Mouse birthday party invitations are ready to go! They were easy to make and did not take a long time to put together. I had such a fun time putting this invitation together that I am looking for any excuse to take out my scrapbook paraphernalia and get crafting some more!
