Masquerade Party Invitations


Well, my daughter’s FROZEN birthday party just passed a few weeks ago. But, I still have to mire parties to plan. That means more crafts! 

For today’s craft I have the invitations that I made for my sister’s Quinceañera that would be a Masquerade Party. 

I made the invitations on Google Drive and send them to print at Vistaprint.com. They came out really pretty and for a really good price. They came with a plain white envelope that I decided to decorate, so that it look better. That’s what I’m going to show you today… how to decorate a plain invitation envelope. In this case, for a masquerade.

Materials:

Additional to your printed invitations and envelopes, you will need:

  • Ribbon
  • Masquerade mask stencil (my invitations were 4×6″ so my mask measurements where 2×4″ aprox.)
  • Cardstock
  • Mod Podge
  • Little brush (to apply the Mod Podge)
  • Pink glitter
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors
  • Self stick beads (optional)
  • Exacto knife


Procedure:

  1. I closed and glued every envelope.
  2. Cut a side with scissors or decorative scissors. In the center of that side I cut a little U-shape, so people can pull the invitations with two finger without damage the envelope.
  3. Trace the masquerade mask shape in cardstock and cut it out with an Exacto knife.
  4. Apply Mod Podge with the brush to the mask and apply glitter. Shake the excess. Repeat in each one and wait until it dries completely. Apply more Mod Podge on top of the glitter to seal it and it doesn’t come out easily. Wait until it dries.
  5. Decorate each mask with the self stick beads.
  6. Cut the ribbon so that it fits around the center of the envelope. Glue it with hot glue at the back of the envelope.
  7. Glue the mask at the front center of the envelope. 
  8. Your invitation is ready!

Hope you liked this craft and please remember to share!
