Halloween Countdown - 15

Oh my, I've fallen behind! Here is yesterday's Halloween Countdown item.

In the last couple days, I've featured invitations that you can order from printers and homemade invitations that you can order and put together yourself. Today, I will feature a few DIYs for your own, completely homemade halloween invitations. Enjoy!

1. Martha Stewart - Owl Invitations


There are tons of great Halloween invitation ideas on the Martha Stewart website, but these owl ones are my favorites. All you need is the template from the website, a printer, scissors, a microhole punch, black miniature brads, a black pen, and some envelopes. Super cute, and I love how they've put the return address on the back of the envelope (whether the post office would notice this or not in the case the envelope does need to be returned, I don't know). Some other invitations Martha Stewart is featuring this Halloween are: Masquerade, Fold-Out Pumpkin, Message in a Bottle, SpiderWeb (Accordion Style), Smashing Pumpkins, Glow-in-the-Dark, Skeleton, SpiderWeb (Regular Style), Mad Scientist, Severed Finger, Treat Bag, and Craft Punch.

2. When & Where Invitations - Bat Invitations




These invitations are very similar to the owl ones in that they have wings that rotate out, except instead of the wings folding in behind the back, these ones tuck in in front of the information, almost modestly. For this one all you need is the template from the website, some coloured paper, two small brads in the colour you choose for your wings, a minihole punch, and glue or two-sided tape. This is the only Halloween invite that has been featured so far, but hopefully there will be more in the future!

3. Tin of Bones Invitation - Craftbits.com

This invitation takes a 3D look at the traditional invitation, with the flat invitation residing inside the can. To make this, you'll need small paint cans (as many as invitations you want to send), Polymer clay, a printer, and cardstock in orange, purple and black. This card makes a statement that just isn't possible with 2D cards.
