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!
Here are some after photos.
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!
