Free Printable Halloween Invitations:
This free printable Halloween invitations template is perfect for making truly unique Halloween invitations and kick off your holiday costume parties with a bang!
Step 1: Print the coffin box and invitation wording template.
Start by downloading and printing the free printable Halloween invitations coffin template. Print the template onto a cardstock of your choice. You can even use a patterned paper/scrapbooking paper but be mindful of using a paper that is on the heavier side, close to the weight of cardstock.
You can even use black cardstock as I've shown above. Yes, I actually printed the template onto black cardstock. The template showed up very faintly but as long as I held it at an angle to the light I could see the guidelines for cutting and scoring!
If you do decide to use black cardstock, just a reminder to be mindful of printing the second page of the template onto a white or lighter colored cardstock.
Step 2: Creating the paper coffins.
After printing onto the paper of your choice, using a pair of scissors or a paper cutter cut the coffin template pieces from the paper on the dark black outer lines.
Using your favorite scoring tool (I prefer to use a bone folder and ruler) score the paper on all of the blue lines. I also added a score across where the corner tabs fold in half.
Fold all flaps in towards the inside of the coffin. Fold all corners in as well.
Unfold all edges and apply glue or adhesive of your choice to the dotted areas of the template. I used a permanent adhesive runner and found it to work extremely well.
Fold corner edges inwards first pressing them to the right or left. Fold top flaps inward to hold the coffin in place. The template creates both a coffin and lid.
Step 3: Filling the inside of the coffin Invites
The free printable Halloween Invitations template also includes a customizable text template to print the invitation wording into the lid of the coffin. You can type your own wording into the template and change the fonts, font sizes and colors to suit your needs. To change the fonts and colors simply highlight the text and press "Control" + E to bing up a text tool palette.
Lastly, add some cool Halloween doodads such as little toy skeletons, spiders, and other creepy crawly creatures. You can also add glitter, confetti, and small pieces of candy!
