    Thank you for your comments! I made the invitations via PowerPoint, and then bought hanging concert ticket lanyards online (via eBay, I think). Here is the apple dip recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/14978/apple-dip/ Best wishes!

    Hi there! I did them in PowerPoint. If you Google “Beatles font”, you will be able download free fonts that mimic the Beatles’ typeface. I pulled the picture and flag from the internet, and added the word “party” on the flag. I bought concert ticket holders online to put them in. If you need more help, let me know!
