What is more fun than a party for Halloween? This year, start the fun out by sending invitations that glow. Add the spookiness to your party by creating glow in the dark invitations using Glow-In-The Dark Mod Podge.
These can be created in any size you would like. This one was made using the standard invitation size of 4 ¼” x 5 ½”. They fit perfectly into an A-2 sized envelope.
Add a little less than a dime sized circle of the Glow-In-The Dark-Mod Podge to the center of the circle and use the brush tool (or the Foam Tools by Mod Podge) to spread the Mod Podge across the entire circle. Repeat this step several times allowing it to dry completely in between each addition. The more you add the more it will glow.
After the Mod Podge is completely dry and not tacky, use a Halloween themed stamp (Mindscape Pumpkin by Inkadinkado used here) and a black ink pad to stamp onto the circle. Lay it aside to allow the ink to completely dry on it. NOTE: Do not use a heat tool to dry the ink as it will heat up the Mod Podge, too.
Take a strip of yellow cardstock and cover it with several layers of Glow-In-The Dark Mod Podge allowing each layer to dry before doing the next one.
Punch the letters for the invitation out using the Alphabet Punch Set by Martha Stewart. Add adhesive to the backs of the letters using a Xyron machine. HINT: Remove the extra adhesive around the letters by using an embossing tool and completely outlining each one making sure to get into all of the open areas.
Attach the circle onto the card base using a tape runner and add the letters above it to finish the invitation.
Halloween is quickly approaching so be sure to get a start on your party planning today by creating these fun and spooky invitations. You’ll be off to a great start with these. I guarantee that your party goers won’t forget about coming after seeing their invitation glow night after night in the dark.
