Karate Party Invitations

For our Family March means the beginning of Birthday season. 

My son is turning 5 this year and after many discussions on what he wanted to do for his party he settled on a Karate party.  So with the location booked it was time to get the invitations made up. 

I wanted to make a gi invitation. I believe that the invitation should be the starting point of the party, it lets your guests know what the party is all about.  Plus I think they are cuter : )

I started out by using my Photoshop program to create a Gi, I put a red belt on it as it is the belt he has.  


Once that was done I added the back piece on the top. I did this by duplicating the gi and then erasing what I didn't need.  I am sure there was an easier way to do this but I wanted to make sure they matched perfectly when folded.


I used a card  stock to print them on and went to work on cutting them out.  


Next up figuring out what I want to do with the cake, this of course is my favorite part of the party.
