When we needed Harry Potter invitations for a Harry Potter birthday party, it was a no-brainer that I’d just make them myself. I’ve already made Cars invitations, Moana invitations and even Beauty And The Beast Invitations. Now I look forward to birthday parties so I can make more!
Of course, the invitations I make depend on the party themes that my daughters want. Last year we were planning to have a Harry Potter party but ended up going to The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter instead. She still got some great Harry Potter gifts but this year we HAD to have a party!
Harry Potter Invitations
Before we could plan anything, we needed Harry Potter birthday invitations. I’m totally hooked on this HP Invitation Kit and use it for all my party invites. You can even use the kit for these Harry Potter Thank You Cards too.
You can’t make Harry Potter invitations without a good Harry Potter font, right? I found this free one at Dafont.com.
I also needed a good background and this scroll from Deposit Photos was perfect!
Finally, I needed the Hogwarts crest and found this one for free online.
Using PicMonkey, I combined all these elements into one card. It’s one of my favorite editing programs and it makes it easy to customize pretty much anything.
There are two versions of these Harry Potter invitations. The first is the simplest. You just print the invitations and fill in the party information by hand with a black Sharpie or other permanent marker. Just use this template if those are the ones you want.
You can also edit this on PicMonkey with the JPG version.
If you want to customize your invitations online, then print them out, you can do that too! Just add the party information using your new Harry Potter font (or any other font you like). I used this Harry P font from Dafont. Here’s an example…
PicMonkey makes it really easy to customize these invites. If you’ve never used it before, this easy tutorial gives you step by step instructions. Just warning you now, after you customize these Harry Potter invitations, you’ll never want regular store bought invitations again. I’ve included the jpg version, which you’ll need for PicMonkey as well as a pdf version.
I don’t usually make matching envelopes but I saw the perfect owl image on Etsy and had to have it.
Harry Potter Envelopes
To print the envelopes, choose the C7 as your paper size if it’s an option. My printer doesn’t have that option so I had to use C6 instead. It was slightly off center but still looked good. Then I put the envelopes in the regular paper tray, since they were just a smidge too big for the photo tray. The landscape or portrait setting will depend on the direction that you place the envelopes in the tray.
You may want to try printing a test envelope first, to be sure you’ve got the settings just how you want them. That way you can make adjustments if needed.
All that’s left is to add names to the envelopes and you’re good to go.
Ashling loved the way these turned out and if the birthday girl is happy, I’m happy! Now…time to start thinking about a cake!
Don’t forget the Thank You Cards after the party…
