• White card or white cardstock
  • 1 pencil
  • 1 lid (from a small bottle, such as vanilla extract)
  • Blue tissue paper, cut in small squares
  • Silver glitter
  • Aluminium foil
  • String or wool
  • Tape
  • Craft glue or glue stick
  • Single hole-punch
  • Safety scissors
  1. Draw an outline of an ice skate on white cardstock.
  2. Cut out the ice skate using safety scissors.
  3. Using a hole-punch, make holes down the side of the ice skate for the laces.
  4. Fold a square of blue tissue paper several times and cut out shapes to make snow flakes. 
  5. Repeat, until you have made 3 or 4 snow flakes.
  6. Glue these to the ice skate using a glue stick.
  7. Make dots around the ice skate with glue and sprinkle silver glitter on to them.  Clean off remaining glitter.
  8. Dip the lid into glue and cover in glitter.
  9. Use the lid as a stamp to add glitter circles around the holes. Add more glue and glitter to the lid as needed.
  10. Take a piece of aluminium foil and scrunch it up into a long piece.  Bend the ends up at the sides.
  11. Turn the skate over and tape the foil along the bottom to look like the blade of the ice skate.
  12. Wrap a piece of tape around a piece of string or wool (this makes it easier to thread).
  13. Take the other end and tape it to the back of the ice skate.
  14. Thread the wool/string through each hole - in and out - to look like a lace. 
  15. Now, you can write on the back of the invitation to invite friends to your ice skating party!
