Minnie Mouse Birthday Bash--Invitations {part 2}

You may remember my post from a few days ago where I made my own Minnie Mouse invitations.  Today, I'm sharing part 2 of making these labor-intensive, but freakin' adorable invites. 

I started by making a simple Microsoft Word document to make the actual invitation.
The "Mickey Ears" font can be found and downloaded to your computer here.  The other adorable font is from kevinandamanda.com.  Amanda takes handwritten samples that people send to her and makes them into downloadable fonts.  I love all of the "Fonts for Peas," which is where this one came from (Pea Rinnybird).  I just played around with wording and font choices until I found something I loved.
Because these invitations were long, I was able to fit two on one page of paper, when turned "Landscape" style on Word.  Print them out and cut the page right down the middle to give you two invitations---saves paper! 
I had to fold my paper invitations pretty small to get them to fit in Minnie's pocket.

After they were folded and stuffed into the Minnies, it was time to stick them in their envelopes! 

I made labels that coordinated with the font that was in her invitation.  Because the CD envelopes were so small, I used the return address labels to seal--working double duty!

And they're done (big thank you to my assembly line...I mean, family...for helping me put together all 31 invitations)!  Send them out to your party guests and listen to the comments you get back about how adorable they are...and you'll know all your hard work was worth it! 

Come back next week to see how I turn a Goodwill high chair into a Minnie Mouse chair fit for our birthday princess!
