15 Bizarre Invitations You Can Mail Without Envelopes!
From birthdays to family gatherings, celebrations are a part of life. The memories we create at these events are precious and we carry them with us for the rest of our lives.

But why celebrate only the physical get-togethers? Why not celebrate occasions everywhere, even if you can’t be there for them?
With these 15 invitations, you can do just that. No envelopes needed!

Why in the world would you send someone a brick? Because you want to host a housewarming party, of course!
