Boxed Invitations

One of the best ways to create a buzz about your upcoming party is to create a fabulous invitation.  Boxed invitations are a great way to do that.  The fun thing about these is that you can add fun details and items that wouldn’t fit into a traditional envelope.  You can get so creative with these and the possibilities are endless.  Here are some good ideas to get you going:

Add candies to the bottom of the box and wrap in tissue.(Wedding Bee)
Pink maribou feathered box with beaded ribbon!  Bachelorette Party, or Special Birthday?(Paper Olive)
A “school” themed box with button magnets and personalized pencils.(Amber & Jeff’s wedding blog)
Add decorative “snow” for a winter soiree.  Maybe a warning to “open with caution.” ; ) (My Personal Artist)
I love this for a man’s birthday party.  Cigar and animal print…very rugged! (Paper Olive)
A mini Candyland board with lollipop for a child’s birthday (Paisley Quill); A fun questionnaire with pencil for a bridal shower.(Gourmet Invitations)
The rustic look is very popular and these would be great with it’s moss lining and scroll invitation (Celebrate Beautifully);  For a baby shower, write directly on a newborn diaper (or add a sticker with the info) and send it in a box!(Make Your Own Invitations)
You can’t tell me you wouldn’t want to attend any of these celebrations!

    I am designing a box invite as we speak. If it turns out okay (crossing fingers) I will email you pictures let you decide if you want to show to your viewers.
