There's a Murder Mystery Afoot...

As the founder and president of The Black Hat Society I organize and host an annual murder mystery dinner party - this year is the 7th annual dinner.

I often purchase the game from a site called Host Party.com which is pretty neat with an interactive online game page for participants, but this year I went for something slightly different. I went with a London-based company called Ace Murder Mysteries and got a box set. I purchased a Marie Antoinette Inspired French Revolution mystery entitled Le Mystere des Masques...and drumroll please...today it arrived!! Perfect timing - just in time to give out everyone's secret motive!

Since I didn't have the online page I simply used Pingg to send online invites and even make a webpage for the game- you can see it HERE!!I'm so excited!

Halloween Invitations Tutorial- The Coffin Invite

Heres a tutorial thats hopefully not too late! Make coffin invites and remind your guests we're all invited sooner or later to that other worldly place...these are especially great for murder mystery parties!

closed, wrapped and ready to go invite Inside detail Finished Invite

Ok so lets start the tutorial:

Buy a 6 pack (or more) of mini skeletons at the craft store Size and trace a paper template of a coffin buy Lightweight Balsa strips and cut template out Use an exacto knife to cut the template out - cut as many as you needCut strips of Balsa around 2"wide & using a glue gun glue them to template edge Use masking tape to make a movable hinge apply the lid!make sure to place the tape on the outside and inside hinge Print out a black rectangle with your text formated to the left, then trace and cut your template out of it.shredded paper makes a great filler

That's it folks- just paint your coffin black use some shredded paper and cloth for extra padding for your corpse, then place that sucker in there - glue in your party info and close the lid! Twine makes a great wrapping cord and consider a funeral flower as a nice final touch!
