I turned 30 last Saturday and had a big Doctor Who party to celebrate.  These are the invitations I made for it.



The front is an image of the TARDIS printed on regular typing paper, with the doors cut so they'll open.



When you open the doors, an image of the TARDIS console room folds out to give you the party details.



The back has a festive Dalek.  Smiley  I printed the Dalek on card stock, and I sandwiched a piece of thick paper (the weight of thin cardboard, really) with a hole in it between the front and back pieces, so the triple thickness of the folded inside wouldn't warp the TARDIS doors when the card was closed.  I put everything together with a glue stick because I couldn't think of any other adhesive that wouldn't wrinkle the paper.

I was really pleased with how these came out, I even made an extra one so I could keep it.  Smiley

How fun!  You did a good job on this!  Love the dalek on the back!

I like using rubber cement on thin paper...the smell will get ya, so make sure you have plenty of ventilation!

Happy belated 30th! Can't wait to see more party details...a very fun theme!

I hadn't considered rubber cement, I'll have to invest in some.  Thanks for the tip!

I learned to love rubber cement during grad school, where our advisor required it on the many, many, many collages we were required to make.  It's an underrated adhesive.  Good stuff.
