blue ombré party invitation

Having a party? Let the cat out of the bag with these pretty striped invitations! We’ll show you how to tuck your invites into these clever party favor bags from Martha Stewart’s blue ombré party collection. It’s easy! Just take a look at the instructions below and make them!
Step 1

First, use your computer’s word processing or design program to create your invitation. Make sure to size the invite so it’s 3¾" x 6½" when printed and trimmed.

TIP: Use colors such as light blue, turquoise and gray on your invitation, so it matches the blue ombré pattern from Martha Stewart.

Step 2
Print and cut out as many invitations as you need onto white cardstock.
Step 3
Next, cut a piece of ribbon that’s about 2" long. Fold it in half to make a pull-tab for the invitation. Use a bit of adhesive tape to fasten the ribbon’s bottom edges to the top-center of the invite. Tape the ribbon’s front edge to the front side of the invitation and the back edge to the back side. Repeat this step for each invitation.
Step 4

Now, take your 1" circle punch and position it halfway down the top edge of a party bag, right at its midpoint. Punch a half-circle into the favor bag. Repeat this step for each remaining invitation.

TIP: Try doing this with the punch’s steel side facing you, to see where you’re positioning it on the bag.

Step 5

Insert an invitation into a favor bag. The invite’s ribbon tab should line up with the half-circle punched at the top of the bag. Do this for the rest of your invitations, as well.

Step 6
All that’s left is to wrap twine several times around each favor bag, then tie a bow. If you need to, trim the twine’s ends a bit.
