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.
Below I listed a very loose recipe and if you would like more detail, feel free to contact me. You can find my contact information on my “ABOUT” page.
Thank you for coming and enjoying a “Holy Piece of Life’s Pie Batman” with me! 🙂
