Sleepover, Slumber Party birthday Invites

Difficulty: Medium Time: 1 hour for 12 invites

My daughter wanted a 'slumber party' for her 8th birthday, so I came up with these cute invitations. We actually held a "No-Sleep Over," or a "Mock Slumber Party," since I think she's still a little young for an actual sleep-over. The party went from 5:00-9:00pm

I made these cute invites by sewing this little pillowcase, and then cutting white cardstock to look like a pillow (or a flour sack, like my loving husband thought they were :)! Most of the girls thought the 'pillowcases' were sleeping bags, but whatever works!

Here's the poem I wrote for the invite, feel free to copy it if you like!

Come on over to Celebrate
Jennifer is Turning 8!

Wear your Jammie's, Slippers too,
We'll do all the things girls like to do!

Eat Pizza, Popcorn, Ice Cream, Cake,
Paint Nails, Play Games, and Stay up late,

And when It's time to go to bed,
We'll all go home to sleep instead!

These were a big hit, the whole party was fun! Look for the favors, activities and cake coming in future posts....when I get the time!

Don't forget to comment on my "Our New Baby Countdown" post to WIN a hand-painted barrette!
