A popular way  to send invitation is not in person but through e-mails.  This is also a great way to get the kids excited for your child’s birthday party.  It’s not only fun and exciting to make but also inexpensive, quick and a perfect way to express what the party theme will be.

These invitation are also great when printed, so feel free to print them out if you prefer.

To make the invitation, we are going to be using a photo editing software called Picmonkey.

There are two templates to choose from.  The templates I have provided below I thought is colourful and fun for both boys and girls to use.

Step 9:  Select the font you are wanting to use.  I have used a font that is part of the upgrade but you are welcome to use any font that doesn’t have the crown symbol next to it or you are welcome to purchase the upgrade.  (up to you)

Step 10:  Select “Add Text”

Step 11:  Your text box will appear probably further down below the image.  Start typing the name and drag it to where I have placed mine.  Resize it to fix in the space and move it so it is in the centre.

Step 12:  Select the colour of the font you are wanting
