Butterflies. That is what we have been about as we work to put together my daughter’s sixth birthday party. These DIY Butterfly Invitations were super simple to make and might inspire your own butterfly themed birthday party. The look I was going for with this party was all bright pink and white. You’ll see, when you see the final images from the party, that there was some green incorporated in as well. However, I really had the vision of making it really simple and clean looking with the pink butterflies juxtaposed on white.

How to Make DIY Butterfly Invitations
What I love about this project is that it was one that we could all help with to accomplish together. The kids all wanted to rally around getting these made.
- Use the butterfly cutter to punch out a bunch of butterflies from pink stock paper.
- Fold the butterflies in half so they end up 3D from the invitation.
- Cut your white card stock to size and fold in half. You can also buy pre-cut white card stock and envelope combinations.
- Take the tiny glue dots and put them in the center of the butterfly, on the fold. It’s easiest to leave the glue dots on the roll, press the butterfly against the glue dot and then pull away.
- Place the butterflies randomly on the front of the card.
- Make the inside of your card using a great online program like Canva or PicMonkey. I made mine in Canva. I used one of their pre-made text combos and added the double line, the butterfly and my details.
- Cut out your design and use double stick tape to attach it to the inside of your card.
Your invitations are ready. Just address the envelopes and send them out to all your friends. Enjoy creating!
