Make Your Own Party Invitations Tips:

Download our image by right-clicking  on the image, and choosing Save Picture As. Save image to C:\Images folder.

Insert your chosen invitation in a blank Microsoft Word document. You can do this by choosing Insert > From File  and then browsing to C:\Images and choosing the right invitation image.

Insert a text box by choosing Insert > Textbox > Horizontal. A text box should appear in your document.

Double click on the text box and ensure that in the Colors and Lines tab, the Fill-Color section says No Fill and Lines-Color section says No Lines.

You can then move the text box such that it overlaps the image you inserted before. Just move the text box to the lined spaces, click on the text box, and type in your details. Feel free to customize your font type, size and color.


  • You can use one text box per invitation field (eg. One for date, another for the time field). This will make it way easier for you to align your text to the image text.

  • Once the necessary fields are filled up,  you can just highlight the image plus your text and make another copy in the same document. In this manner, you can print the document with two invitations, instead of just one.

  • Or if you would rather email this invitation to your friends, just copy image + text to Photoshop or your preferred image editor and save it as JPEG. Your invitation is now ready to be emailed!

  • If you will find it easier, feel free to use our blank card to create your invitation. The text box method mentioned above should also well for this process.
