Open a word processing program and type your invitation wording. Size the text to fit an area 3.5 inches by 4.75 inches. Copy and paste the text to fit four invitations on one letter-sized document. Print your invitation on vellum sheets.
Cut the vellum invitations to 3.75 inches by 5 inches. Cut the patterned paper into 4.25-inch-by-5.5-inch pieces.
Center a vellum piece on top of the Sesame Street paper. Hold the vellum in place securely and punch two holes though top center of both pages, leaving about a half inch between the holes. Insert an end of ribbon into each hole and tie a bow through both pages. Cut the ribbon ends on a diagonal.
Place the invitation into a colorful envelope. Seal the flap and accent it with a Sesame Street sticker. Add another sticker to the front, in the bottom left corner of the envelope.
