Halloween Card Making Party

THEME:


Skull Cameo Dimensional Stickers, on Amazon

Invite five or six other adults over to create beautiful handcrafted paper greeting cards. Each guest will work to make their own cards to take home and mail to family and friends. Meanwhile, serve a nice dinner, fun appetizers and devilish desserts.

ACTIVITY:


Martha Stewart Crafts Halloween Designer Paper Pad, on Amazon

You'll provide everything your guests will need to make their handmade Halloween greeting cards: Colored paper, colored pens, rubber stamps, paper punches, scissors, tape, glitter, glue, Halloween stickers, and other crafty supplies. Serve dinner on the coffee table or buffet, or clear it away quickly so your dining table can be used for the crafting project. Serve dessert about half an hour before the end of the evening, a clue to guests to start wrapping up their work.
