Of course, the first thing you need is to invite everyone!
I used THIS template for the owls – but I didn’t like the orange background.
So I some quick photoshoping. I opened the file, and then dragged it onto a new transparent background. Using the magic wand, I selected all the orange and deleted it. Then I just put a brown digital scrapbook paper behind it. I printed them out (they turn out to be 5 x 7 size) and assembled.
I loved THIS idea of a secret message hidden in the typical Hogwarts acceptance letter. When you wrote down all the red letters it spelled out “It’s ____’s birthday party” I cut out the papers, crumpled them up, and then lightly rubbed a brown ink pad over it to age the paper.
You can find McGonagal’s signature HERE on the side of the article.
To assemble – I needed a really little hole punch. I didn’t have one, so I instead I put the owl page on a pillow, and shoved a thick yarn needle through the paper.
A quick easy little hole for the cute baker’s twine to attach the scroll.
I also printed the addresses in emerald green on the envelopes. (The font is called abermarle swash, found HERE)
