Brittany here from One Charming Party guest posting. Since we’re celebrating Mique’s birthday, I wanted to share with you a bunch of fun, unconventional invitation ideas that I’ve collected over the past year. These can be used for birthday cards, party invitations, or even adapted as holiday cards & presents. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!Wouldn’t these fortune cookies be darling for a New Years Eve party invite? The full tutorial is over at For the Love of Paper.I’ve loved this Lemonhead baby shower invitation ever since I first saw it. Check it out over at Jordan Ferney’s Oh Happy Day.A more youthful twist on the previous idea, I love the bubblegum that reveals “Happy Birthday!” What child wouldn’t love a box full of gumballs? See the whole post at Inchmark. Remember this Candyland Party invitation made from an Altoid tin? This could easily be changed up to fit any theme or holiday. Love it! From Katherine Marie Photography.This is a fabulous idea that you could replicate (I love the little milk heart). Take everyday items and turn them into a sweet birthday or holiday message. Photograph it and send it out postcard style or tucked in a simple card. See them at Shoot the Messenger and more examples here.I’ve been dying for an excuse to make this card. It’s perfect in its simplicity. Another darling idea from Inchmark.The accordion envelope card, a classic from Martha Stewart. Stick 8 envelopes together and fill with surprises for the eight nights of Hanukkah or fill 12 envelopes for the twelve days of Christmas.

This card is unbelievable and could really be a present too with a gift card, money or other surprise tucked inside the bag. Get the scoop and two more card ideas at Little Birdie Secrets.
