Housewarming Invitations

 

”Tis the season for house-warming!  If you or someone you know is moving or buying a new house, why not have a housewarming party to celebrate?! 

Here is a great idea for tasteful housewarming party invitation.  And, it is super easy to make!

Just start with a solid color base sheet.  Here, I chose a light yellow.  Next, choose a coordinating lightly printed paper.  The one I found is a light green color with a very faint swirl pattern to it.

For the text sheet, I chose a cream solid sheet.  For the text itself, I chose a layout using a cursive font for the main body and a print font for the words, “Help us make our house a home…”  I printed the text in a brown ink that blended better with the colors of the papers than a traditional black would have.

Rather than cutting a straight edge for the text sheet, I decided that a ripped egde would look better.  Ripping an edge is easy and looks great.

Next, I used some metal brads and fastened them to the corners of the printed sheet.  I think that the brads give a good texture and ‘home-y’ look to it.

I then made a tag using left-over cream and yellow paper and I freehanded the words “New Home” on it.

For the finishing touch, I wrapped the print and text sheets in a raffia and tied on the tag.

This design could be used for any number of invitations such as an anniversary.  It’s also very easy to make, which means making a large number of these isn’t a problem.

Let me know of other housewarming invitations you’ve made!
