Skeleton Invitations

Frightening fetes call for equally spirited invitations. This Halloween, lure party-goers to your haunted house with a bone-rattling skeleton.

The creatures have movable body parts, attached with miniature brads, which make them compact to send and spook-tacular to receive.


  • White heavyweight matte paper

  • Microhole punch

  • White-gel-ink pen

  • White miniature brads

  • #10 envelopes


  1. Download the skeleton template.

  2. Color-photocopy templates at 125 percent (or download images and print) onto white heavyweight matte paper. Cut out parts with scissors. (For thicker invitations, affix copies to black card stock with spray adhesive, then cut out parts.)

  3. At joints, make holes using a microhole punch. Secure limbs on top of body with white miniature brads.

  4. Write details using a white-gel-ink pen. Fold in parts; enclose card in a #10 envelope.
