Ugly Sweater Invitations

December 2, 2009

Tis the season!  Happy December people!  We all know December brings with it high credit card bills, relatives, gaining weight and ugly Christmas sweater parties.  To add a little extra flair to your party, follow my instructions below for easy to make ugly sweater invitations.


  • Heavy cardstock
  • Pom poms
  • Rick rack ribbon
  • Buttons
  • Hot glue gun

Step 1:

Grab paper by the edges and fold towards the middle.  At the top-most portion, fold the corner into a diagonal, and fashion it so it looks like a collar (a small cut can be made in the corner to make folding easier).  You have now created the basic foundation for your sweater.

Step 2:

Measure the length of one of your flaps and cut four pieces of rick rack.  Hot glue rick rack onto invitation.

Step 3:

Hot glue the poms and buttons onto your invitation.  Feel free to use any other crafting supplies that may add to the tackiness of the invitation, or try using cardstock that has a print on it already.

Step 4:

Get the Cosby seal of approval!
