Halloween Invitations Tutorial- The Coffin Invite

Heres a tutorial thats hopefully not too late! Make coffin invites and remind your guests we're all invited sooner or later to that other worldly place...these are especially great for murder mystery parties!

closed, wrapped and ready to go invite Inside detail Finished Invite

Ok so lets start the tutorial:

Buy a 6 pack (or more) of mini skeletons at the craft store Size and trace a paper template of a coffin buy Lightweight Balsa strips and cut template out Use an exacto knife to cut the template out - cut as many as you needCut strips of Balsa around 2"wide & using a glue gun glue them to template edge Use masking tape to make a movable hinge apply the lid!make sure to place the tape on the outside and inside hinge Print out a black rectangle with your text formated to the left, then trace and cut your template out of it.shredded paper makes a great filler

That's it folks- just paint your coffin black use some shredded paper and cloth for extra padding for your corpse, then place that sucker in there - glue in your party info and close the lid! Twine makes a great wrapping cord and consider a funeral flower as a nice final touch!

Woah! These are super great. I can't believe how much work you guys put into all those. I hope the party's super fantastic! For some reason my internet has blocked me from your blog and the 3rd ward site for no reason for the past 6 months or so :( so i haven't gotten to see all the stuff that's been going on here, but i can't believe how vigilant you are at this bloggin' stuff. everything looks great!
