Hybrid Halloween | Party Invite Tutorial

October 21, 2013

My son has his first big Halloween Party coming up this week which definitely has me putting my crafty skills to use!  So I thought I'd share some of my creations with all of you and pass along some last-minute inspiration.  Stop by throughout this week to see how I've simplified the party-planning process by introducing a few digital products into the mix--that's right it's going to be a Hybrid Halloween!  

Today, I'm showing you how I've paired my Silhouette Cameo with the papers I had on hand to make the invites for our Halloween party in a single evening.

What You'll Need:

  • Cardstock
  • Patterned Paper
  • Small Embellishments
  • Die Cutting Machine or Craft Knife
  • Printer
1. Using a die cut, cut file or your favorite font, design the look of your sentiment.

2. Arrange your sentiment on a 4x6 document or scrap to make your card front.  (NOTE: You can fit (3) 4 x 6 card fronts on an 8.5 x 11 document).

3. Cut out the sentiment from your card front using your die cutting machine or by hand, using a sharp craft knife.

4. Layer your card front over a 4 x 6" patterned paper of your choice and adhere it.  You should be able to see your patterned paper peeking through the cut-out.

5. Add small embellishments to accent the front of your card.

6. Type up the information you'd like to pass on to your guests on a 4 x 6 document and print it out (NOTE: You can fit (3) 4 x 6 card fronts on an 8.5 x 11 document.)

7. Adhere the information about your party to back side of your card front.


NOTE: For my own card I used this shape from the Silhouette store and set up an 8.5 x 11" cut file with (3) of these shapes and 4 x 6"  borders around each of them. I cut them from black cardstock and then layered each over top of patterns from SEI's Homestead and Salem Heights Collections. Then I added some wiggly eyes to accent my card fronts.

Have a Happy Halloween!
