Cookie Exchange Party Invitations

I absolutely LOVE Christmas time; plus it’s a perfect excuse to throw a party! I decided to host a cookie exchange this year with neighbors and close friends. It’s a party where attendees bring they’re favorite cookie to swap and by the end of the night you’ll have a variety of sweets to have for visitors during the holidays. How perfect!

One of my favorite things when planning a party is making the invitations. I’ll be honest, my invitations are always extra. If you don’t believe me, check out my post on Bear’s first birthday party here. I blame my mother; she always had the most amazing invitations for our parties.

So, I thought I’d share how I made them!

These were SO fun to put together & it only took about 15 minutes!

I used leftover paper from Bear’s 1st birthday invitations ● Literally everything else is from hobby lobby! ● The paper filler is in the gift wrapping section & the little white boxes are in the baking section.

I used these ornaments for the actual invitations ● I found them at hobby lobby, but you can buy really cute ones here

Next, I printed off the party info on craft paper, cut it to fit, & glued it onto the decorative paper.

Tip: don’t go too heavy on the mod podge ● I used too much on a few and the paper started to get wavy.

Next, mix the different colored paper filler in each of the boxes.
