what you'll need:

white cardstock

floral scrapbook paper (optional)

small craft scissors

mini brads

green cellophane

tape runner or glue stick

washi tape

sharpie marker

pink envelopes

gruff face mask printable

instructions:

to create the front of the invitation, open the gruff face mask printable in photoshop.

rotate the image 50° and crop approximately 7" x 5" at 300 dpi.

copy and paste two (2) of the cropped images on an 8.5" x 11" canvas and print on white cardstock.

use craft scissors to cut out the face shape and cut out the eye openings.

trace the face shape on a piece of blank cardstock and cut out the outline. this will be the second page of your invitation.

optional: trace the mirror image of the blank cardstock on patterned scrapbook paper to add a decorate element. cut out and adhere to the back of the second page.

trace the eye holes in pencil on the second page, but do not cut out.

cut a strip of green cellophane to put behind the eye openings and secure with colorful washi tape.

on the second page, use a sharpie to outline the eye shapes. these will be the "O"s in the word "hollow".

finish writing "hollow" and then add pixie above and party below (end result will read, "pixie hollow party!"). then, add in your party details.

attach the two pages with a mini brad in the upper left corner.

address your envelopes, slip in an invitation, seal, add a stamp, and drop in the mail.
