Monster trucks are thrilling for boys of all ages, and a monster truck-themed party should have themed invitations that get guests ready for a party full of big trucks. Although some websites offer printable invitations to which you just need to add the details of when and where the party takes place, you can opt to make your own instead.

Instructions

Tire Invitations

1 Cut a large circle from a black piece of card stock to use as the base of the invitation. The circle should be of a size that fits into the envelopes you plan to use. If needed, you can fold the circle in half to fit in rectangular envelopes.

2 Cut a smaller circle of coloured card stock to act as the hubcap for the monster truck tire.

3 Glue the hubcap to the centre of the tire.

4 Write the party information on the hubcap with a black or coloured marker. If the hubcap is a dark colour, use a silver paint pen to write the party information so it stands out. You may wish to include or modify monster truck-themed phrasing on the hubcap or side of the tire as decorative promotion. Common monster truck commercial hype includes repetition of the day of the week of the event ("Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!") and phrases like, "We'll sell you the whole seat... but you'll only need the edge!"

5 Decorate the black portion of the tire by drawing tire tread designs on it with white chalk. If desired, cut the outline of the tire into a design, such as the knobby bumps of monster truck tires.

Truck Invitations

1 Have the party celebrant draw a monster truck on a piece of paper.

2 Scan the picture into your computer, ensuring you scan at high resolution if you need to increase the size of the drawn original. The higher the resolution you scan the image with, the larger you will be able to recreate its image on the invitations while retaining its quality. Open the picture in a desktop publishing program that allows you to work with both text and images.

3 Create a text box at the top of the picture and type a monster truck-themed phrase like, "Get Into Gear!" or, "Monster Truck Mega Party!"

4 Create a text box at the bottom of the invitation and type all of the party details, including the time, date, location and RSVP contact information. For added flavour, come up with a fun monster truck-style nickname for your child wherever he's referenced, so the RSVP contact could become something like John "Car Crusher" Smith. Search for monster truck names online for inspiration, if needed.

5 Print two invitations on each sheet of white card stock for large invitations measuring 5-1/2 inches by 8-1/2 inches. Print four to a page for postcard-sized invitations.
