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.
It is free to use and very easy.
I will show you step by step below (with video link) on how to edit the image to make your digital invitations.
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.
Firstly, you need to choose which image you are wanting to use. Click on the invite image above and right click and save. Save somewhere that is easy to remember, like your desk top.
Step 2: Hover over the Design tab and a selection box with appear
Step 3: Click on 5 x 7 canvas size
Step 4: You are now in the main area of Picmonkey. On the left is all your edit tools. Click the butterfly
Step 5: Click the down arrow on “Your Own” tab
Step 6: Click “My computer”. You will then go and find your image you have saved. It will be located where you saved it the first time. (Desktop or Picture folders etc)
Step 7: Once you have selected your invite. It will appear something like below. Very small.
To enlarge your image you would need to drag all 4 corners (one at a time) to fill the white space
Step 8: Go to the left edit tool bar and click on font
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
Step 13: For the party information, you are going to do the same steps you had done before with adding the text.
Step 14: Highlight the text and click on the bold button, to make the wording pop
Step 15: While you still have the text box highlight, centre your wording
Step 16: Resize your text box and change the colour to what ever colour you desire
Step 17: Click Save – located above the invitation
It will take you to another screen. Enter your file name you would like it to be saved as. Keep it as Pierce and click “Save on my computer”.
And that my friends is how it’s done. Easy peesy, lemon squeezy. =)
