Instructables
I made these for my son's 9th birthday. Though I can see them being used for just about any age since StarWars has captured so many generations. ..

Supplies:

Bright colored cardstock paper 8 1/2" x 11" (one sheet per invitation)
Silver/Gray colored cardstock paper 8 1/2" x 11" (one sheet per 4 invitations)
Black Cardstock (I used 3 sheets to make 24 invitations)
Paper towel rolls (cut in 1/2)
Red Buttons (one per invitation)
Black shinny Puff paint (one bottle)
Aluminum Foil Duct Tape (less then one roll)
Adhesive (I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry and black ZapDots by Helmar)

Step 1: Step 1

Print the Invitations:

Choose your invitation information to include:
  • For Whom the party is for
  • What the party is about
  • When the party will be held
  • Where the party will be held
  • RSVP info
Type it out so it fits nicely into a 1/4 sheet (4.25" x 5.5") of an 8 1/2" x 11", I used a StarWars type font. Cut all your Silver/Gray cardstock papers into 1/4 sheets and set your printer to print on a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of cardstock.

Here is my wording:
9 Years ago in a galaxy far away,
a baby boy was born.
his name is (Insert Child's Name) and
he is strong with the force!
Now, you have been chosen!
Join forces with (Insert Child's Name) on,

Saturday, May 14th 2:00 – 4:30
(Insert Address)

Please RSVP to the Jedi Council
(Insert Contact info)

Adhere the invitation:

Place the gray invitation paper 1/2 " above the bottom of the paper towel roll. Adhere with a permanent tape runner or a strong double sided tape along the back side of the invitation before applying to the paper towel roll (cut in half). I had issues with this so I started using Helmar 450 Quick Dry, it worked great!

Not just for 9 year olds...you've given me a great idea for my husband's 40th. He's such a Star Wars nerd. I figure I will have to post them in a postal tube. Thanks.
