How to make Monster Birthday Invitations

I needed some cool invites with a Monsters theme and created these monster party invitations for my son's upcoming 3rd birthday party.

The Sassafrass Monstrosity Collection is the cutest line, and when I saw it last year, I knew I had to have it for this special occasion. All the monsters are so cute, I couldn't decide on just one so I created 4 versions.

Materials to make invitation


Completed Monster Invitation openedThe actual construction of the card was created so that not only can you see the little monster on the outside of the card, but on the inside as well.

Step one

With your computer print your party details on to your red colored card. You might need to play around with it at first to get the alignment right. Do your test prints on to scratch paper first. I used two different color cardstock to make these invitations - blue and red.

Step two

Take your printed cards and fold it in half.  I created the "window" by cutting a half circle on the top page of the card only, and hand stitching around the opening using contrasting thread.

Step three

I lined the inside of the card with white dotted vellum that had the party details printed on to it.

Step four

The monster pictures were from a piece of 12"x12"Sassafrass Lass scrapbooking paper, the Monstrosity Line. I simply cut around each image and attached to the card using foam/pop dots.

 I had lots of fun creating these!
