Penelope’s Would-be Birthday Invitation


Pingg and the telephone were a great back-up plan for Penelope’s invitations, but I just still was a little sad that I didn’t have the time to make her a more personalized invitation. But if I had time, here’s what it would’ve looked like. . .

Penelope's free fill-in-the-blank Invitation

These invitations were inspired by the square petal envelopes at Paper Source (I’m in love, seriously–Paper Source is my favorite). Well, I didn’t have a chance to use these invitations, but if you have something coming up, Penelope’s fill-in-the-blank invitation is available for download, right here!! For free*.

      Melissa, did you know that they’re putting in a Paper Source at Town & Country Village? Like, right across from where I work? I am SO DEAD.

      Saw this on a link… and these are so awesome! I’m going to use them for a bridal shower I’m putting together. Question – did you mail these as is, or with an envelope? I think this is such a stylish way to skip the envelope, but would hate to have the post office not process them.

    10. […] Cute invitations to print out – Sending paper invitations kind of go against my preference to be greener, but these are really cute. My favorite part is the petal closure. These are simple and adorable, so if I were going to send paper invitations I’d give these serious consideration. […]

      These are cute. I would like to use them for my after school students to make cards. Is there any way to print these with out the writing on the inside?
