What are some creative invitation ideas?

Sending out festive invitations is a great way to get guests excited about your party and in the holiday mood! The best way to make invitations that are both fun and original is to create them yourself. One classic option is to decorate paper cut out invitations shaped like Christmas trees, candy canes, gingerbread men, Santa, Santa hats, Christmas gifts, snowflakes or Christmas stockings. Items you can use to decorate your invitations include cotton balls, ribbon, bows, wrapping paper, candy canes, and family photos. Another creative idea is to make your invitation look like a wrapped Christmas gift and place it in a box with a bow. There are dozens of easy fun things you can do to make your holiday party invites really pop; you just have to use a little creativity.
