"Movie" Party Invites


Evangeline recently turned 5 and her chosen birthday party theme is "Movies". So, I had the idea to make a movie theater ticket invite and then I realized that movie theater tickets are kind of lame looking these days. I mean, it's just a white slip of paper with black print on it. So, I made a sort of raffle looking ticket. Maybe it doesn't relate? But, whatever.

I made these tickets in Photoshop and made them large. I wanted a really over-sized tickets.  These measure around 7 x 4".  You'll notice I used a slightly reddish/grey color so when it was printed onto the reddish/pink paper it would look authentic.  The font is BEBAS (love this font) and is available for free download here.
Then I simply printed (two per page) onto reddish/pink raffle ticket colored paper.  Next I cut around the edges, leaving a 1/4" border. I used a 1" circle punch to punch out along the notch I had created in my file.  Then I used a standard size hole punch on each corner.
I purchased Orville Redenbacher's Smart Pop Mini Bags. They are kind of healthy and are a single serving size. I tied a mini bag of popcorn to the ticket with a big red bow and Eva hand delivered these over the weekend. 
I'll be sure to fill in all of the party details. I have some pretty fun ideas brewing and I can't wait to see how it all turns out! Stay tuned!

They are seriously cute. I love it and I think the 'raffle' tickets look works very well with the movie theme. And the tie... perfect.

These are adorable! I just found this through Pinterest and started to attempt to recreate them in Word, with no luck. I don't have photoshop :( Any chance you'd be willing to post a download? Thanks!
