There are two little munchkins who I adore, and are the daughters of dear friends. The past 3 or so years, I have made the invitations for their birthday parties, and some other decorations, favors, or whatever needs to be made. Last year Munchkin Number 1, wanted a Hotel Transylvania themed birthday party. Since her birthday is in October, her parents decided to make it a costume party complete with a haunted house (which the Munchkins, nor I, would enter).
Here is the Invitation I made for that party.
The card was cut using Cricut Over The Hill Cartridge at 5 1/2″
The base is a Bazill cardstock in Nelly
The gate and bat are Recollections black shimmer cardstock.
The bat is cut from Cricut Batman cartridge (I can’t remember the exact name, sorry) on page 33 at 3 1/3″
and attached using an adhesive foam square to add dimension.
The information was printed on Recollections white cardstock with 2 different fonts since her mom and I couldn’t decide on one.
These felt bats were hand cut using a free clipart image as a template. I glued googly/wiggle eyes (obtained at the Dollar Tree), then applied these to black tote bags which I had leftover from another party a few months prior. These were used as the party favor bags.

|Step 2: Scrunch the links/rows together tightly, twisting the links around the dowel if necessary.|
The glitter foam bats on the ends of the birthday banner were purchased at Michaels.
