Totally 80's Party Invitations


Happy New Year everyone! This past weekend was my boyfriend's 30th birthday and we went back in time - 80's style. The party was a lot of fun and our guests had an excellent time. One of the details we remained to get praises for were the invitations I created for the party. I honestly believe an invitation is an important element to any party or wedding since it's the first impression guests will have of your event.

The 80's themed birthday invitations were custom audio cassette tapes completed with j-cards and plastic cases. The tapes didn't actually play anything but had all the important details posted on the cassettes. The j-cards (paper card inserted in the plastic case of most audio cassettes) were made out of a glossy matte paper cut to fit inside the plastic cases. I'm really pleased with how they turned out and so ecstatic our friends and families loved them too. Not too bad for a first timer, if I may say so myself!

I hope you all have a wonderful 2012 and congratulations to all the newly engaged couples!

Sweet Planning!

I am planning a surprise 80's party for my 10 year old daughter and would LOVE to create an invitation like this one! Can you tell me where you got the templates for the tape and case? I would really appreciate it :) Thanks so much!
