This is part of the Cricut Design Space Star and I used my Cricut Machine to make almost all aspects of this party.
Want to see my party ideas? Let’s do it!
Monster Mash Party Ideas:
Here are the invitations I used for the party:
- Card Stock
- Googly Eyes
I cut these invitations using my Cricut Explore Machine. Here is a template that you can use to cut yours as well. Right click and save this, then upload it into your Cricut Design Space and size it how you want it. If you are not using a Cricut to cut it, right click and save and then print it and use it as a cutting template.
I added googly eyes and glued them in place. Then I used this Monster Mash Party Invite Template. Again, right click and save. Then open it in a photo editing program on your computer or on Pic Monkey to add your own text:
One of my favorite parts of the party was the decorative Monster Garland that I made!
- Card Stock or Scrap Book Paper
- Baker’s Twine or String
- Tape and Glue Stick
- Silver Paper or Card Stock or Sticker Paper
I also made this using my Cricut. I cut out circles using the Cricut. I have those loaded and ready for you in the Cricut Design Space if you have access to that. Get my template here. You will need to be logged in to your Cricut Design Space in order to access that.
If you are cutting them on your own, cut circles that are about 4 inches in diameter. Cut two circles for each spot you want in the garland. Then I used some baker’s twine to string them all together. I taped the twine to one circle, put glue on another and stuck them together:
To add the monsters I used a silver sticker paper (but you can use whatever works for you) and cut out silhouettes of the monsters.
Next I made cute little toppers that I stuck on a straw.
You can either print these and cut them out by hand, or use Cricut’s new print and cut feature to let the Cricut do the cutting for you!
Here’s the images so that you can use them:
Template with Multiple Boo’s to Print: Boo Tags
Template with Multiple Monster Tags to Print: Monster Tags
Or you can use these (above) as stickers! I used Cricut’s Sticker Paper to print these and stick them on cute little party favors:
To make these I simply cut the silhouette of my monsters and added googly eyes then added them to one of my decorative straws (cut in half).
Easy but cute!
Here is an image you can use as a template in the Cricut Design Space to cut these:
Monster Party Favors:
- 12 x 12 Card Stock
- Google Eyes
To make these I cut this treat box: Template.
Then simply add googly eyes and teeth (want some teeth? I have those too-here)
Fill them with candy!
- Round Sugar Cookies
- Eyes (I found these in the baking section at Target)
