Are your kids as crazy about Frozen as mine is? Everything is Frozen over here. So, naturally my daughter requested a Frozen themed birthday party for her 5th birthday. All parties start with a fun invitation. Often, I create a digital invitation that I have printed at my local photo retailer. But for this party, I had the perfect idea for creating a pretty dress shaped invitation to look a little like Elsa’s gown.

I started by creating a design on Cricut Design Space.
See the cut file: Disney Frozen Birthday Invitation.
Note: After personalizing your text, you will need to click on select all at the top, then select “attach” in the layers palette for the design to print and cut correctly. The font I used is called Goudy Trajan Regular.
I have been wanting to try out the pens on a project for a while now. I was worried the font would be hard to read since it was going to be pretty small, but the Cricut wrote it all perfectly with my blueberry Cricut pen.
I created a dress shape that would open to reveal the birthday party details inside.
After the Cricut Explore printed the birthday information and cut out the dresses, I added a little skirt to each one.
I roughly measured how much tulle to use, using the width of the roll and cutting it just a tiny bit longer than the length of the skirt. I purchased my glitter tulle in a small roll at Walmart.
I used my sewing machine to gather the tulle at the top. To gather, use the longest straight stitch you have. Do not backstitch at the beginning or end. While holding the threads on one end, gently pull one of the threads (either the top thread or the bobbin thread, not both) from the opposite end until your tulle is gathered.
Sew the gathered “skirt” onto the front of the invitation.
The Disney Frozen birthday invitations turned out even better than I originally imagined. They perfectly set the tone for the rest of our Frozen birthday party!
