Easy Movie Night inviations to make!

We have the worlds greatest neighbours! We have gates between us all in our fences with paths, arches and gardens around them. We often use our neighbours gates as shortcuts to another street to catch buses or to go to the park - the kids are especially happy with the arrangement as they can ride their bikes in the cul-de-sac that the neighbours live on rather than the main road that we actually live on.

Because we have such wonderful neighbours, we often get together for birthdays, Christmas, Sunday morning breakfasts and for the sheer fun of hanging out together.

This time I have organised a Movie Night in our backyard as we have a big yard... and the movie projector! I like to make a bit of a fuss and so I made some invitations for all our neighbours to put on the fridge to remind them...

Here's what I did...

First I went on the net and searched 'Google Images' until I found a free colour clip art picture of a movie ticket.

Then I imported it to my 'paint' program and deleted out the details that weren't needed by 'selecting' them and then hitting the delete button. I recoloured the now empty bit by selecting the background colour with the 'colour picker' and then 'bucketing' the background colour into the white area.

Then I used the text tool to write in the details of our movie night and when I was happy, I 'copied and pasted' six copies of the new ticket image onto a landscape A4 page in a word type program to make a single page of tickets.

Then I hit print and, voila - one page of simple movie ticket invitations for our movie night!

Score card:
Green-ness: Hmmm...Less green than simply yelling over the fence or emailing to invite them... but more fun!
Frugal-ness: Muchly frugal - time and one A4 sheet of paper cost is all it cost!
Time cost: Probably about an hour of mucking around - but then I enjoy this sort of thing!
Skill level: Basic computer skills in paint and word are all you need!
Fun -ness: Great fun doing something to bring a like minded group of people together!
