I promise we’ll be getting back to St. Patrick’s Day stuff later this week, but I’ve had these new Rapunzel Birthday Party Invitations sitting on my desk for a couple months now and finally got around to photographing them.
I know we already showed you our super-cool Tangled Tower Invitation, and we still love that idea. (I mean it’s pretty hard not to love the idea that landed you on the Martha Stewart Show, right?!) However, it came to our attention after this post that many people were looking for a simpler invitation for their parties — what do you mean you don’t want to buy a special paper punch or make a dozen Rapunzel braids? We so hear you! So I set out to design a new, printable Tangled-themed birthday party invitation with absolutely no braiding required.
I was planning to just make one, but Aimée and I loved each of these designs equally well and couldn’t choose… so you’re actually get TWO new Tangled Birthday Party invite ideas (you’re welcome!)
The beauty of these invitations is you just print, cut and mail. Of course, being the Supermom wannabes that we are, Aimée and I couldn’t resist adding a little something extra to the sun emblems with a bit of gold glitter and glue, but this DIY is truly easy.
ALL YOU NEED: school glue and some fine gold glitter. We used this one which is also available in our favorite glitter set. (Seriously, I can’t say enough good things about Martha’s glitter pack… Aimée and I both have and love it, and if you don’t already have it we say make it an early Easter gift to yourself!)
Oh yes, and you’ll need our free printable fill-in rapunzel party invitations templates here: Party at My Tower or Let’s Tangle. Don’t forget if you’d rather have the invite pre-filled with your party details (as shown in the photos) visit our Supermom Co-Op to get your personalized template.
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO: Take a clean sheet of paper and fold in half then open back up and lay flat on your work surface. Take your cut/printed invite and add a small circle of glue to the center of the sun. Lay glued invite onto work surface and sprinkle the glitter over the glued area covering completely. Pick up the invitation and while still holding over the paper on your work surface tap slightly to remove any excess glitter. Set the glittered invitation aside to dry. Pickup your folded sheet of paper (now covered with loose glitter) and use the crease at the center to funnel the unused glitter back into the container. Repeat for all the invitations and be sure to let the glue dry completely before placing in an envelope.
But don’t forget — all this glitter nonsense is just for those of us that are addicted to having that little something extra. This invitation design looks fabulous without the glitter too so no pressure — either way your little troop of princesses will be all set for a fabulous Rapunzel Birthday Party!
