Harry Potter Invites

These invites I didn't originally plan to share. 
First of all they are far from perfect. 
I threw them together when I realized I needed them immediately in the mail to give my guests time to plan and respond.
But also, and more importantly, they aren't fully my creation.
I took a jpg/picture of Owl Post Mail from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, edited out the name and address.  Then made a back to match.  Also, the background for my "message" side is from a coloring page found: here placed on paper from: kevinandamanda.
(her site and fonts are well worth browsing through as well.)

For the download below, I removed my writing...but the fonts I used were:
Aquiline: for the Names
Civilian: for the Address
The King and Queen Font: for the Party Message

*note: I added a border around each, so that there is room for error when cutting and printing.

  5. For the butter beer, can you make this the night before and have it still be good the next day? I have a 1pm party on a saturday, but at party location; not my house. I won't have time to make it on the party day, since I'll be preparing the location most of the morning.

  6. For the butter beer, you can make most of it in advance and them combine them together just before serving, except the whip cream mixture. It probably is fine, but it is best when it is just whipped, so it keeps its fluffy consistancy. But that step only takes a minute. Good Luck with your party!

    I tried to click edit and it won't let me write on them. Do you have to have photoshop? I don't:-( Thanks so much! These are awesome!

  9. Thank you so much for sharing this invitation. With a little work I was able to lay text over it with no fancy software or anything. What a special way to kick-off what is sure to be a fantastic party for my son.

  10. I have received several emails and some comments about editing these invitations. I saved these as a PDF so that when printing them the front and back would line up properly. But, I didn't realize editing them would be so tricky. Sorry for all the trouble! The best advice I have is to take a "Screen Shot" or even better a "Partial Screen Shoot" which will turn it into a jpg. Hopefully using a picture instead of a PDF will be easier to layer text on top of the invitation.

    For how to on Screen and Partial Screen Shots go here: http://take-a-screenshot.org/ (BUT BE SURE TO choose the appropriate tab on the top for Mac, Windows, Etc)

    Hope that helps and if anyone else has suggestions, we'd love to hear them!

    1. I used the basic 5x7 envelopes. I know when you measure them, they aren't exactly 5x7" they are like an 1/8th of an inch bigger? But they were called 5x7". And great idea for Thank You Notes, I am going to use that idea myself!!!
