Rainbow Birthday Party Invitations (Free Printable)

We had a rainbow party last year for Eleanor’s birthday, and I made really cute invitations for it. At the time, I didn’t offer a free printable version because I couldn’t think of a way to incorporate the custom rainbow colored text into an invite that would work for everybody. After adapting my train party invitations, I realized I could do something similar, and lo, a free download for you today.

These are for personal, non-commercial use only.

I’ve only provided cards for ages 1-10, but if you’re handy with a graphics program, you should be able to create any number you please. Rainbow 75th birthday party, anyone?

      Each invitation is 4.25″x5.5″, so they’ll fit four to a letter-sized sheet of paper. And they’ll fit in an A2 envelope (I should have mentioned that!).

    I used these for my daughter Lily’s birthday party and we tucked them into a blank card that she decorated with rainbows. Check out the finished product here: http://sueathome.wordpress.com/2012/06/03/lilys-rainbow-birthday-party/

    Thank you so much for this. I just ordered some invitations and then saw that they won’t arrive until a week before the party! You’ve saved me from some anxiety. :)
