Uh… yeah… OK… when I first heard the term Ninjago, I think I responded with a, “God bless you.” I am familiar with Legos, of course, I mean who isn’t?  But I had never heard of Ninjago Legos until one of my best friend’s sons showed me what seemed to be 8 million tiny Ninjago Lego men all in a row.  Needless to say, with his 7th birthday just around the corner, he needed his Auntie D to make him some DIY Ninjago Birthday Invitations.

I heart Google Images.  I use it almost every time I help with a character themed birthday party.  I’ve used it for and Elmo meets Little Einsteins party, Paul Frank themed party, Mickey Mouse themed party, and an Owl themed first birthday,  to name a few.  I picked two images for these invites and used a free photo editor to add the party information.  For the front of the invitation I used a picture of the Master Sensei character and added “ Sensei says, “Master Aidan is turning seven.”  I printed them out on fine art paper and cut them out.  For the bottom I used the green Lego Ninja mask (Aidan’s favorite).

I cut out red scrapbook paper as well to use as a border.

I used the layered the two pieces, punched a hole in the left upper corner and added a charm to attach the two pieces.  The charms I found in the sales bin of a craft store, 6 for $2.00!

These were a hit with all the moms.  I didn’t have to worry about envelopes, because Aidan simply handed them out at school.

In case you missed them, here are some more budget friendly DIY party posts!
