Road Sign Birthday Party Invitation
My kid is, for lack of a better word, obsessed with road signs so I thought it would be the perfect theme for his birthday party this year. I had the idea to make some road sign invitations and sleeves to hold them. At the end of this post, I’ve placed the printable high resolution JPGs if you would like to download them.
I created the signs and insides in photoshop and printed them out on white cardstock. Cut them out leaving the sides that are touching ‘uncut’.
Then I scored along that hinge to make a cleaner fold.
These are the insides that I cut out and just glued to the inside.
The envelope sleeves, I cut on the outside grey lines.
Then on the inside lines, I scored the grey lines that were left.
For a cleaner corner, I cut a small ‘V’ at the center fold line.
I just folded them inwards and double side taped the seam.
The envelopes were alot longer than I needed to fit the sign invitation so I cut the height to be 3.75 inches off the top.
Then I used my 1 1/2 circle punch to make the cut in the center.
Here are the files. They are high resolution (150dpi – 8.5 x 11 )

OMG I LOVE LOVE LOVE these invitations! My son is completely OBSESSED with traffic signs and I thought he was the only one! I was wondering if you had any other street sign ideas you incorporated into your party. This is by far the most difficult theme I’ve had to plan thus far! Thanks so much 🙂
