“Holy Cricut Batman!” Another Birthday Party and My Cricut!

 

Cake/ Cupcake toppers

I have a dear friend that asked me to do the decorations for her son’s 6th birthday party, using the Marvel Super Hero Comic theme.  Since I have two girls I could not wait to get my hands on a “total boy” birthday project.  

I made cake/cupcake toppers, a 16 foot banner, and hanging “pom-poms”.

For the base of the banner, my friend and I snagged some free promotional comic books from Williams Sonoma.  It was a bit tricky cutting the banners out on the comic book paper, but after a few run throughs, I manged to find the sweet spot of my bug (speed slow, low pressure, and light blade).  I supported the comic paper with a heavy-duty card stock cut at the exact demention.

I did most of the work in Design Studio and used Glossy accents on the “words and number”

This project had a lot of “devil” “vilians” in the details, but I think it paid off in the end.

Pom-Poms

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.

    I love the comic book banner! Was it scrapbook paper or did you cut them out from actual comic books?
