For my son’s 3rd birthday he was all about Mickey Mouse Clubhouse which is why I threw him a Mickey themed party. Although you can purchase Mickey party supplies, I wanted to add my personal touch so I made my own Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Invitations!
If you know me at all then you know that I love to be crafty and make things for parties including the invitations, some decor items, and even the cake. I wanted to share with you all this cute little project that I did for his party invites.
Not only could you make these invitations for a birthday party but you could even make them for a fun Disney themed adult party or a baby shower.
You can even make them into Minnie instead of Mickey. You’d basically just want to include a bow. (If you need help on this look let me know).
Okay, so I’ve had tons of questions over the years on how to make these and I want to say that the EASIEST way is to use a silhouette machine. This will ensure a perfect cut with every invitation. If you don’t have one, don’t worry. I was able to hand cut all of these invitations when I first made these.
Ready to get started? Here is what to do…
DIY Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Invitations
What you will need:
- Red Cardstock
- Black Cardstock
- White Cardstock (to print invites on)
- White Buttons
- Craft Glue
- Clear Envelopes (found these at Michaels)
- Mickey Mouse Character Stickers (to seal envelops, found these at Dollar Tree)
Tip: If you want to use a template, I suggest Googling “Mickey Mouse Head Silhouette PNG” this will give options. Save that image to your computer and open in a program such as Microsoft Word. Resize to the size you want then print and cut. Repeat for as many invitations as you need.
- To get started, simply cut out a Mickey Mouse head silhouette. After the first one is traced and cut out, you can use this as a template for tracing and cutting the others (assuming you aren’t using a Silhouette machine).
- Cut out half circles using the red cardstock. You want to ensure this fits perfectly on the bottom half of the Mickey head silhouette from step 1. Again once, the first one is traced and cut, use it as a template for the others.
- Use craft glue to glue just the edges of the red cardstock onto the black Mickey Mouse silhouette. You want to have a pocket to slip your invite into.
- Glue white buttons on the front.
- Design and Print your invitations. I also printed little RSVP cards that were the size of business cards so the invites weren’t cluttered. I created the templates using Microsoft Publisher (you can also use Microsoft Word) and downloaded the Walter and Wicked Mouse Disney inspired fonts from Font Space. I do want to point out that this is a third party site and you are downloading these fonts for free. There may be a risk for a virus. I did not have any issues but just wanted you to be aware.
- Slip your invite into the pocket. Then place into the clear envelopes and seal them with the cute stickers.
- You have now made your very own Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party Invitations without too much effort or cost.
Note: Since these are in clear envelopes I did not mail them. I like being able to see them but you can use white envelopes so they can be sent via mail.
All in all this craft cost about $10 to make. I made about 20 invitations for his party but I still have a ton of supplies left over to make more. Make sure you utilize those craft store coupons to help keep the cost down.
