DIY Godparent Invitations – Fabric Invite

Fabric invitations are very classy and unique. Although, purchasing fabric invites may be expensive, you can save cash by creating your own. This craft project is featured on home-frosting-blogspot.com. Check out the blog for more advice and instructions. All you’ll need to get started is freezer paper, blank invite cards, an ink jet printer, fabric, and an invitation design plan. Take a look at the instructions below to find out what to do next.

Before you begin you’ll need to create your print design. Find a cute design online, or you can use a scanner to transfer a hand drawn design onto your computer. For invitation design ideas, check out pinterest.com. For wording ideas, check out baptismwording.info. Your godparents will love these super cute and creative invitations.

If fabric isn’t your preferred medium, you can also use this print method to transfer images to wood.

You’ll Need:

  • Freezer Paper
  • Standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ Paper
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Ink Jet Printer
  • An Invitation Design
  • Fabric (to print your design on)
  • Blank Invite cards

Instructions:

  1. Cut a piece of freezer paper so it matches the size of your standard 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper. Cover your standard paper with spray adhesive and stick it onto the “paper” side of the freezer paper. The waxy side of the freezer paper should be exposed. 
  2. Trim any excess paper with your scissors. Now, you should have a sheet of paper that is standard on one side, and waxy on the other.
  3. Now, get your invitation ready to print. Place the sheet of paper you just created into the printer, you’ll want to print your design onto the waxy side of the paper.
  4. As your design prints onto the wax paper, be careful not to smudge the printed image.
  5. Now, moisten the surface you plan on transferring the image to. You can use a sponge or spray bottle. Avoid adding too much water, you do not want to soak the surface, just dampen it.
  6. Place your image onto the wet surface. Use a spoon to rub the back of the paper. Keep rubbing until you’ve covered the entire surface.
  7. Carefully lift the paper off of the fabric surface. Let the ink dry a bit.
  8. After your printed fabric drys, you can either glue or sew your fabric onto the blank invite cards. Check out craftstylish.com for more fabric/paper invite ideas.

Godparent Invitation Wording Ideas

After you select an invitation, you’ll need to start thinking about invite wording. Inscribing your invitation with the right wording is very important. You’ll need to make sure your invitation wording is clear and concise, because your guests will be using it to prepare for your special occasion.

At minimum you should include the time, place, and location of your event. Include additional information to warm your invite up and make it more personal. Try including a meaningful quote or mention a special memory that’s relevant to your son or daughter’s special day. To get started, take a look at some of the wording suggestions below.

Back of Invite

“Fountains and ye, that warble, as ye flow, 

Melodious murmurs, warbling tune his praise. 

Join voices all ye living souls, ye birds, 

That singing up to heaven gate ascend, 

Bear on your wings and in your notes his praise; 

Ye that in waters glide, and ye that walk 

The earth, and stately tread, or lowly creep; 

Witness if I be silent, morn or even,

To hill, or valley, fountain, or fresh shade 

Made vocal by my song, and taught his praise. ” 

– John Milton, Paradise Lost
