Witch-Hand Pattern

Adobe Acrobat

  1. Cut an 11-x-3-1/4-inch rectangle from black card stock and scrapbook paper. Use zigzag scissors to trim 1/2 inch from one short edge of the black rectangle.
  2. Trace the witch-hand pattern from the pattern pack onto the tracing paper. Cut out the traced shape. Trace the shape onto green textured card stock. Cut out card the stock shape.
  3. Lay the witch hand over the black card stock rectangle, and then lay them both over the dotted scrapbook paper rectangle. Line up all the flat edges at the top.
  4. Punch two holes through all three layers of paper. Thread a ribbon through the holes and tie it in a bow. Use glue to attach a fingernail to the forefinger; let dry.
  5. Use the pen to write the party details on the invitation. A red acrylic fingernail on a warty hand cut from textured green paper points guests to the party details.
