Tag Archives: Birthday party decor. Do it yourself birthday party

“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
