I have been on a Legends of Chima kick for the past several weeks, and today is no exception. However, this time I turn my attention to design a Legends of Chima-inspired chi invitation.

If you would like to make some chi invitations for your little one’s birthday, Halloween, or any other party you desire, then follow these very simple instructions with free template below.
– blue card stock paper (on sale for $2.50 at Michaels or about $3.00 w/ 40% coupon)
– X-ACTO knife (optional)
– paper cutter (optional)
– 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ inch envelopes

Step 2. Cut out template.
Then trace template pieces onto blue colored card stock paper using a ruler/straight edge and pencil.
Step 3. Cut along traced edges.
You can use an X-ACTO knife and ruler to ensure that you have crisp, sharp edges. Or if you had a steady hand, a good pair of scissors.
Step 4. Fold left and right edges together to enclose the invitation.
(Optional: Use template template as a guide to fold lines.)
Step 5. Cut out chi crystal template pieces.
Glue to the front of invitation (when flaps are closed).
Step 6. Make your invitation inserts detailing information about your party.
I used text boxes on Microsoft Powerpoint to make my invitation inserts. But you can use any application to prov ide party details.
Step 7. Cut and paste onto invitation.
Be sure that your insert fits within the invitation.
Step 8. Place finished invitation inside envelope.
If the invitation does not fit in the envelope when closed, then carefully cut away at the additional front chi crystal pieces until the invitation does fit in the envelope.
Step 9. Voila. Project Complete!
You now have plenty of invitations to let your little one hand out a Legends of Chima-themed party invitation.
(Optional: If you want to add a little embellishment, you can add the lion insignia to the front of the invitation for an added pizazz.)
