Come Party With Me: Valentine's Day Single Gal Soirée — Invite

This week I'm helping my sister and her best friend plan a Valentine's Day party. None of us are in a relationship and instead of sitting at home sulking, we're gathering up a group of single gals and hosting an uber-girlie fiesta. If you don't have a special sweetie, I suggest you do the same! Before the party can begin we have to send the invites. You could send out boxed Valentines or make a crafty invitation like the one I made here. To see how I made this adorable invite, read more.

To make an invitation similar to the one seen here you will need the following supplies:

  • cardstock in different shades of pink and red
  • ribbon
  • scissors
  • gluestick
  • heart confetti
  • computer and printer

To assemble the invite:

  1. Start by creating a new word document. Write out the details of the party. For my invite I used the font Century Gothic in size 12 to write this message:
    Valentine’s Day is almost here,
    if you’re single and fabulous have no fear…
    Because we’re throwing a party!

    Please join us for a celebration of self-love, fondue, and fun.

    Center the text to the middle of the page. Print out on a plain piece of paper and check for grammar and spelling mistakes. Once satisfied with the look of the text, print out on the cardstock.

  2. Fold the top third of the invite down covering the text. Cut the extra third of cardstock off the bottom.

  3. Get creative with the front of the invite. Cut out hearts in different shapes and sizes and glue to cardstock. For mine, I cut hearts out of two shades of red cardstock and turned them into kites with pale pink ribbon.

  4. Decorate the inside of the invite by scattering the heart confetti all over, gluing the pieces into place.

  5. Slide into an envelope and send.
