Last year’s Halloween party had a vintage, gothic feel which all started with a plastic skeleton and continued with these invitations.

The Materials:
A4 card (120gms or more, depending on your printer) in White
A4 card (heavyweight) in black and red (corrugated or textured if possible)
1” wide mini luggage tags
Avery Labels in clear and white
4.5mm round head black brads (8 per skeleton)
Red embroidery thread or string
Good Craft Glue
Scissors, ruler, awl or sharp pencil, pencil, black pen, hole punch

Step 1: The Wording

The wording for the invitation was printed on to mini luggage tags.  To put the text onto the tags I printed it onto clear labels, deconstructed the tags, stuck the labels on each side of tag, trimmed them, repunched the holes and then put the tags back together again, gluing on the hole reinforcers and retreading the ties.

On one side the text gave details of the party and on the other was the only clue written that our guests got “Will the dead rise?”

I won't say it wasn't a lot of work, but they are worth it!

Thank you both, I loved these cards :)
very effective :) awesome :)
Wow, that is a lot of work! Gorgeous results.
