MICKY MOUSE PARTY INVITATIONS
White card stock
Black card stock
Red card stock
Adhesives – glue stick & glue dots
Cutting tools – scissors & circle cutter
For Mickey’s Head
- Start by getting a Mickey head template for your invite. If you Google ‘Mickey head template’ you’ll get lots of images to choose from. Print out the template of your choice.
- Trace on black card stock and cut out with scissors.
- Next print your invitation text on white card stock. Fit as many as you can on one sheet for less waste.
- Use a circle cutter to cut out the text so it fits on your Mickey head. If you don’t have a circle cutter, use a small round dish or cup.
- Use glue stick to adhere the printed white card stock circle to Mickey’s head.
For the Pocket
- Using the red card stock trace around the bottom of your Mickey head, with an extra 1/2″ or so for when you glue two pieces together. Cut out and use as a template to cut the rest out, 2 pieces needed for each pocket.
- Glue the round edges of two red half circles together to make the red pocket.
- Use glue dots to attach 2 buttons to the front of each pocket.
- Slip the head into the pocket and you’re done!
