3. To make the pocket for the invites (Mickey’s shorts) make a half circle that is slightly bigger than the bottom of the Mickey head. If you are good at free hand you can trace it, if you are like me and aren’t good at free hand you can find something round like a cereal bowl and use that to help you trace. Next cut it out and use that piece to trace the rest. You will need 2 per invitation. And I was able to trace 3 to a page.
4. Once all your red half circles are cut out, line the outside with glue like this picture and place another half circle on top and let dry. Continue with all the half circles until finished.
5. To make the button I used the scraps from the white cardstock I used for the invites. Using my 1 inch circle cutter and this other cutter to create slits. If you don’t have a circle cutter you can either trace circles or print off circles and cut those out. And you could just use a thin black marker to create the button holes or slits.
6. Glue the paper circles to the red pocket. If you’d like to use real buttons use white ones and use glue dots to attach them to the pockets.
And there you go! A super cute and fun Mickey Mouse invite!
Minnie Mouse Invitation:
If you need to make a Minnie Mouse Invitation it’s almost the same thing with a few changes. My cousin made this adorable invite for her little girl’s Minnie Mouse Birthday Party.
She used a red paper on the bottom and glued on the white dots. She made the bows using polka dot ribbon. Isn’t it cute!?
Super cute and easy idea! I love your blog!
Thanks Francesca! 🙂
I have been looking for a tutorial like this. I will be making these this week! What size was your circle? Did you mail your invites- I need to mail mine and need to know where to buy/ what size to buy for envelopes. Thanks!
I’m glad I could help! My circle was about 5.5 inches in diameter. But you’ll need to make room for the ears.
I didn’t mail mine. If I were you I would buy the envelopes first then fit your invites to the envelopes. You can buy envelopes at about any office store and even at the Post Office. Hope all goes well!
