Our cost on these invitations? A mere 20-cents each! Here's how you can do it too...
We are a family of Lego fanatics. Our favorite lazy day activity is to clear the dining room table and build up entire Lego civilizations for hours. The February release of The Lego Movie inspired my youngest daughter to have a Lego Movie themed birthday party. I'll be sharing all of our ideas, activities and crafts in the coming weeks.
Our first step in the Lego Party planning process was to create an eye-catching invitation. For my daughter's Toy Story Birthday Party, we purchased customized ticket-style invitations. We wanted to do the same for this party -- they look great, are so easy, and are very affordable. Unfortunately, we couldn't find one online that suited our needs. So, I decided to design my own. I saved a copy of the blank template so that I could make it free for others to use (for non-commercial purposes, of course, since I don't own the Lego images).

To customize the invitation, simply download the image and add your text using a photo editing program. I use Picasa, which is a free program that is easy to use and has lots of great features. Once you've personalized your invitation, you'll want to upload it to a photo website like Target, Walmart, or Costco. I used Costco. I ordered 15 prints (4x6 glossy) and paid less than $3 for the whole lot.
|The font I used for the digital looking print is OCRATTRegular. For the rest of the invitation, I used a combination of Arial fonts and Century Gothic.|

I printed these on a medium-weight semi-gloss paper and used an Elmer's Extra Strength Glue stick to assemble.
Stay tuned for more fun and creative ideas for your Lego party!
