A Simple Halloween Invitation How-to
|Simple and Quick Halloween Invites|
Each year we throw a Halloween Party for our kids friends. We have two big strains, new ideas to spook people in our basement haunted house and .... the invitations. My kids insist on making them and frankly the cost for invitations can be pricey when you are inviting more than the 8 pack. To get our invitations done in quickly but with some flair I used some scrapbooking tools.
Halloween Paper Punch Edging
2 sided Halloween Scrapbooking paper
Halloween fonts - do an online search
If you're a scrap booker, you probably have all these already. If not, you can find them in any craft store. The most expensive is the paper punch. If it's beyond your budget, use the edging scissors which you can pick up fairly reasonably. Then after the holiday, look for it on clearance :)
Cut scrapbook paper to the size you want. You can go for 5" x 7" to fit into an envelop but these invites could be handed out on their own.
Use the Paper Punch Edging on one end of the paper.
Print up the invite
Use the edging scissors for invite
Glue it on to the side that doesn't have the pic you want to show off and you're done.
