Out of this world invitations

So, an old friend of mine wanted something a little different for a friend’s baby shower. I don’t know about you, but I hate how repetitive baby showers are. I mean, no one can seem to move past the baby blue footprints or powder pink rattles! This is where the idea of a space theme came into play….

Invitations, birthday, baby shower, space, aliens, ufo, cricut, svg

These were so fun to make and super easy. If you are a beginner with paper crafts, have no fear! These aliens come in peace and are ready for you to use them on your next project! You can download him here! Keep in mind that I do everything to fit into my customer’s budget! Materials for 40 invitations cost me less than $20! Not too shabby for custom made invitations 😉 “What do you need?” you ask? Well, keep those pants on. I am about to tell you:

1) Two different pattern papers. I bought some fun green 12×12 paper patterns from Michael’s and cut them into 5x7s. I bought some spacey 12×12 paper to layer on top from Michael’s too. I first cut them into 5x7s and then I just kind of gave it a wave on top and bottom to show the green paper. Remember to just choose paper you enjoy and just have fun with it!  If you enjoy the materials you work with, you will enjoy doing these over and over!

2) cardstock for your alien dude and UFO. I used green for my alien dude and red for my UFO because it went well with paper, but make your characters whatever colors your heart desires! I also used transparent paper for the top of the UFO to make it look kind of like glass, which people really liked. And I added chrome pearl stickers at the base of the UFO.

3) Googly eyes! Oh how I love them googly eyes! If I ever have a chance to use those babies, I use them! They just add so much fun and character to these invitations.

4) I printed the 411 for the baby shower on 4×6 white cardstock and just slapped it on the pattern paper to make it more interesting. Straight would be boring for these invites.

5) You will also need the basics: paper trimmer and glue. A cricut would also come in handy here (Especially for the alien dude)!

Hope you enjoy these! I had fun making them and got a lot of compliments from the guests at the shower. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask any questions! Below are some  photos from the baby shower:
