DIY Blow Up Balloon Invitation

These balloon invitations have to be blown up to be read. They are a great novelty invitation.

DIY Blow Up Balloon Invitation

What you need

Permanent Marker


Blow up the Balloons, but do not tie them up. You can use a balloon pump also.

Use a clip or peg for a temporary hold.

Write the invitation on the outside of the balloon with permanent pen/marker. Allow the ink to dry.

Let the air out of the balloon to deflate it.

Pop the balloon into an envelope and post with a small instruction card that says “Blow Up The Balloon”.

  14. Sounds like a good idea even for a wedding invite. The catch for that could be to bring the invite to the bridal shower or batchelor party and used for something there.
