fold the card1. Prepare the card

Cut your card to size - I used pre-cut A5 (148mm x 210mm) sized card from a scrapbook store that sold card making products. Fold your card in half, use a bone folder if you have one to create a crisp clean fold.

Print the wording for your invitation onto plain white copy paper and adhere to the inside of the card.

Trace some large circles approximately 30mm or 1¼" in diameter on to white card. I searched in the kitchen cupboards for a glass or egg cup to use as my template.

Cut out your eyes with a scissors or craft knife an set them aside.

eye pupils for cookie monster3. Pupils for eyes and mouth

Trace some smaller circles on to black card for the pupils. These measured approximately 10mm across. The only thing small enough to trace that I could find in the house was the centre hole of a cd disc.

Draw a mouth shape onto the black card with a pencil an cut out with a craft knife.


cut out a cookie3. Cookies!!!

Trace another circle shape onto light brown or tan colored card. When you have cut them out you can cut out a couple of "bite" shaped pieces to make it look like a cookie that has been bitten.

With a brown colored crayon you might also like to draw some small chocolate chip shapes.


Assemble all the pieces of your Invitation on to the front cover of your card as shown in the picture below. Be sure to make sure the eyes are googly and crazy looking.
