I loooove a good invitation! It sets the tone for the party. I particularly love handmade invites so it was a no-brainer to create special Pokémon invitations for my boys birthday.
I wanted to do handmade invites this year so I searched Pinterest and Etsy for inspo. I stubbed across this Pokeball design that I loved. I found a few different ways to achieve the look but I felt the pocket style would be the easiest for me to do.
There are two ways to make these cute Pokémon pocket style invitations. Cutting by hand or using a cutting machine, like a Cricut or Silhouette.
I used my Cricut to creat these Pokémon invitations.
White, black and red card stock
Foam double-sides adhesive
Glue dots or zots
Siscers or Cricut/Silhouette
Use link below to use template using a Cricut.

Silhouette users, here are the sizes and color circles to cut.
Black- 2-5.5”, 2", 1.5"
White-5.25", 1.75", 1.4"
Hand cut method
Print templete on heavy card stock and cut out circles. (template below)
-Cut one of the large 5.5” black circles in half. This will be the bottom of the pocket.
-add a thin layer of glue on the curved edge of the newly cut semi-circle. DO NOT ADD GLUE TO THE STRAIGHT EDGE. That will be used as the pocket opening.
-line up the remaining 5.5” circle to the glue side of the semi-circle. Press edges to adhere and let dry.
-measure and cut the large white circle up 2.25" from the edge. Using glue dots to attach it to the black semi-circle.
-Now let’s assemble the button! Start with the larger black 2" circle at the bottom. Add a glue dot. Place the larger white 1.75" circle directly on top. Add another glue dot. Next place the black smaller 1.5" circle top top and add a foam adhesive dot. Last, add the last white 1.4" circle.
-add a glue dot to the center of the black horizontal line. Attach the button.
-the final step is to add the party details. (Date, time, location, etc.)
I used Pages on my Mac but you can also use word or PowerPoint
Downloaded the free Pokémon font from dafont.com
Create a 5.5 circle with a thick black border.
Insert your party details. Print and cut out the circle.
Adhere circle party details to the back of the red circle.
Slide into the pocket and you’re done!!!
Alteration- You can also place red card stock in your printer to create the party detail circle.
