I just love a really cute, fun invitation! This homemade Halloween invitation definitely fits that description!
This little wacky spider drops right in to invite your guests to a great Halloween party!

To make this invitation, start by cutting the purple cardstock down to a size of 5-1/2″x 8-1/2″ using a paper cutter. I love using my Exacto Paper Trimmer…works great and I’ve had it for years!! I’d definitely recommend it!
Next, cut the orange cardstock to a size of 5″x 8″.
The next step is to design a text layout. I liked the look of a slightly off center title block with the main information being in the lower right corner. I also used a fancier font for the event name and the residence name. I also highlighted them by printing in an orange ink.
Once you have a layout, print on the white cardstock. Cut that to a size of 4-3/4″x 7-3/4″.
Next, cut an imperfect circle from the black fabric or felt. Using a sewing machine, sew an cute smile on the spider. Attach the buttons either by sewing them on or using a mounting square.
Attach the spider to the white cardstock using mounting squares. Draw on the legs and a string.
Attach all the layers together using mounting squares. Be sure to keep all the layers centered!
Finished…it’s so simple, but so cute!!
