Materials Needed:

  • white 8.5" x 11" card stock
  • white A7 envelopes
  • sequins in several colors
  • tacky glue
  • scissors

Cut Out Printable Invitations

Print the cocktail party invitations onto white card stock. Two invitations will print onto each sheet; the cutout size is 5 by 7 inches.

Add Sequins

Place dots of tacky glue on the paper where you want to glue individual sequins. Tip: Random patterns look best.

Push an individual sequin into each dot of glue. Use a few different colors of sequins. Let dry.

Package and Send

Once you've added your party's details to the invitation, add a handful of sequins to each A7 envelope as a fun surpise for party guests. Then address, stamp and send!
