Pillow Case Un-Slumber Party Invitations

Free Pillow Case Slumber Party Invitations Template {OneCreativeMommy.com}

This summer, we had a great time throwing an Un-Slumber Party for Boo.  Instead of a sleep-over, we opted for a late-night party.  (The girls came in their pajamas, played games and stayed up late, but then they all went home to sleep!)

I already shared one of my favorite projects from the party–my Spin the Nailpolish Bottle Game–but I got distracted by Valentine’s Day and forgot to post the rest of the party!  I figure that it’s about time, so today I’m sharing the invitations.

These invitations are made from 12×12 paper, so I am offering a free download of the Silhouette cutting files I created.

My invitation idea was inspired by one I saw on TwiggleBox.blogspot.com.  If you want another version of the poem, or if you want to try a cloth pillow case instead of a paper one, head on over to my inspiration site to check out another fun option.

Here’s my poem (adapted from TwiggleBox):

You’re Invited to Our

“Un”-Slumber Birthday Party!

Come to play and stay up late.

Tessa Fowler’s turning 8!

(Please say you’ll help us celebrate!)

Bring your pillow, make friends new.

Wear your PJs, slippers too!

(We’ll do fun things girls like to do!)

Candy, popcorn, ice cream, yum!

Paint nails, play games, movie fun!

(A happy time for everyone!)

And when it’s time to go to bed,

You’ll all go home to sleep instead!

To make your own, download my cutting files, and create your own poem to add to the pillow cutting file.  Print and then cut.

Select three coordinating papers for the pillow cases.  Solid colors work best for the trim.  Cut the pillow case files on all three papers, and then mix and match them to create your pillows.  I’ve provided a diagram with the cutting files to show how to put the pillow cases together.

Ready to give my slumber party invitations a try?  You can download the cutting files by clicking the download link below.  This is a zip file.  If you are not familiar with that format, you need to open the zip file first in order to see the cutting files inside.

Updated 2/4/15:  I’ve had several readers ask for a file that they can print and cut themselves.  The original file is made for 12 x 12 paper, so it won’t print on 8.5 x 11 paper.  I have not tested this file.  All I did was shrink the pieces to fit on 8.5 x 11 paper.  You are welcome to try printing and cutting yourself.  I hope it works for you! Good luck!

*Updated May 2016: I just added a new diagram for putting the invitations together. I hope it helps!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll be back.

HeidiI’ve been known to link up at these parties.


  1. These are cute! Good job :)

  2. These are super duper cute!!

    Thanks for joining the Link Up this week!

  3. What a fun idea!! I will have to keep this in mind for when my kids are old enough to have birthday parties like this!!

  4. That is so cute! We’ve been to a few slumber parties where some of the kids end up wanting to go home so this is a great idea. All the fun and no anxieties!

    • I totally agree, Jen. Plus, in this day and age, I refuse to let my kiddo’s sleep at a stranger’s house. I don’t care how nice the dad or older brothers are. In my opinion, you just can’t be too careful!

  5. Oh my goodness those are so cute! I’m going to Pin that for an idea if I ever do a sleepover.

  6. I love this idea but I have the new cricut. Has anyone recreated this for cricut?

  7. hi, is there any way to get the files for me to just trace and cut? I don’t have a fancy machine, but this is what my daughter wants for her invites. thanks

  8. These are super cute! Any chance they can come in a file that’s not a zip? I can’t open them.

  9. I love this idea! I just printed out the PDF file. However, I am unsure exactly how to put the invitation together. Do you happen to have an instructional video or post?

    • Hi, Alyda. I never realized that the instructional diagram was not included in the printable version! Thanks for letting me know. I just added it. If you open the pdf again, you’ll see a new diagram at the end. I hope that helps!

  10. Thank you for sharing these files. I just made invitations for my daughter’s 10th birthday sleepover!

  11. Hi,
    Love these!
    Did you use paper or cardstock?? if paper, is it sturdy enough?

    • Hi, Sally. The inside card is cardstock, but I used scrapbook paper for the envelope. That’s not as thick as cardstock, but it’s more sturdy than copy paper.

Comments make me happy!
