See how to make your own Nintendo 3DS birthday invitations. These invitations are very easy to make and you’ll even get the free printable to make them!
Every year, I look for an original way to make my children’s birthday invitations. I particularly enjoy my son’s video game themes.
This year, we went for a more general video games theme with a Nintendo 3DS, although Pokémons are never too far. 😉

How to make Nintendo 3DS birthday invitations
You’ll see, it’s very simple! First, to make an invitation, you will need two cardstock of the same colour. The invitations don’t have to be all the same colour, go according to your child’s favourite colours! My boy is so cute, he even chose pink and purple for the girl’s invitations! Very considerate that one !!! 😉
On the first cardstock, print the inside of the 3DS and on the other, the outside. Note that the outside represents my son’s 3DS which is a special edition of Pokemon Sun and Moon. It was not negotiable, he wanted the invitations to be the same as his own 3DS (I told you that the Pokemon weren’t very far!).
Then cut the cardstock like this:
Fold the cardstock representing the inside of the 3DS so that the top and the bottom are equal. It’s ideally easier and more efficient to use a paper trimmer with a scoring blade.
You can see the line made by the scoring blade on this picture:
If you do not have a scoring blade, you can use a utility knife and a metal ruler. Just press very very gently, without cutting and you will get about the same result.
Finally glue the pieces representing the outside with the stick glue.
For this part, I suggest you measure the “screens” of the 3DS in case your impression is different from mine.
On Microsoft Word or another writing software, write the information about the invitation in a “text box” in the dimension you measured. You can even add an image as I did (still Pokemon!) 😉
All you have to do is print on white cardstock, cut and paste it on the “screens”.
So these Nintendo 3DS birthday invitations are easy, quick to make and economical! Don’t hesitate to show me what you make with them!
