Giveaway & Review: SanLori Party Invitations & Fill-In Thank You Cards [CLOSED]

TWINtuitive Product #28

I chose this children's decorative stationary from San Lori, an online retailer of personalized stationary and more, to feature as a "TWINtuitive Product" because the this particular "Young at Art" design is perfect for a boy/girl twin birthday party. It is tough finding party themes that would be a good fit for both boys and girls. Arts and crafts parties are something I have found both boy and girl party-goers to enjoy.

Both the 4-5/8" x 6-1/8" Young at Art Invitations and the coordinating Young at Art Thank Yous are colorful post-card style cards that come with matching envelopes. The card stock used is similar to a medium weight business card. The invitations are to be filled out by the parents, but the thank you cards are designed for the children to fill out, which is great. Since these cards are a single layer, it would be very easy to punch some holes and tie satin bows to them, if you would like to add your own special touch. There would also be room in the envelope for a small handful of colorful confetti.
Although the item description reads as a pack of 10 cards per package, I somehow received one set of 10 boxed invitations and 10 boxed thank you cards and then a set of 8 packaged invitations and 8 packaged thank you cards. I can only hope that we will only require 18 invitations when it comes time to plan our twins' birthday party. I already know where we will be having the party and these invitations are perfect for what I have in mind.

To view San Lori's full selection of holiday cards, wedding invitations, birth announcements and more or to simply find out additional information about this online retailer, you can visit, San Lori on Facebook, and SanLori on Twitter.
