Dr. Seuss Invitations

DIY Dr. Seuss Invitation, and free template!

I’m the kind of person that likes to plan things in advance. Wayyyyyyy in advance. Like start planning my daughter’s first birthday party the week she was born in advance.

But really, can you blame me? The moment your little chunkers is born you just can’t help but think of all the milestones they’ll hit – especially the one year mark.

I have always loved Dr. Seuss, something about the rhyming, the colors, and the made up words really speaks to me! Needless to say that is exactly the theme I wanted for our baby girl’s first birthday.

I really like to make things by hand (you can see some of the things I’ve made here and here).I think it makes it that much more special. So, I decided that I wanted to make our Dr. Seuss invitations by hand too!
