It may seem like there isn’t much going on at Nikkiikkin but I have a lot in the works that I’m excited to share very soon! Right now Im going to squeeze in a few last minute Quick and Easy Halloween Party Idea posts with a decoration or treat that anyone can do!
I have been hand making most of my party invites for more than 10 years, even before I had kidos, we had BIG Halloween and Valentine’s Day parties every year. While I was digging through our Halloween decorations I came across something that I should have thrown away, but glad I didn’t. I found the printing process that I created to make one of my favorite Halloween invitations from 2005. This is pre-photoshop ability for me and it wanted to share it to show that you can make creative invitations for any event without needing knowledge of photoshop or purchasing printables. You just need a marker, Word and a copy machine!
Here you can see that I literally cut and pasted in my text that I printed from Word. I drew a simple Halloween silhouette scene (pretty sure I drew this by looking at some other Halloween illustration) and I copied the page onto orange card stock at a kinkos.
What we loved about this invitation it’s that we personalized it to each guest by adding a color photo copy on the back (because my pictures were real pictures from film, not digital) of the guest at a previous party or of our decorated home if we didn’t have a picture of them!
While it might be too late for sending out Halloween invites, there is still time for you to use this same method for tent cards, favor tags and toppers!
