When Landyn asked for a Superhero party for this 4th birthday, I was so excited! I instantly turned to Pinterest for inspiration. I wondered how in the world I planned parties (or a wedding! AHH!) before Pinterest came around. Then….
I had to laugh, because the invitations I ended up making didn’t even come from Pinterest at all! I got some inspiration from bits and pieces, but then decided on my own idea.
I’m a very “do-it-yourself” type of girl. Last year, I turned to Anders Ruff printables for LC’s LEGO party since I just had surgery, but this year I knew I wanted to come up with some of my own designs. I wanted to include superhero masks on the invites, so I used one of his superhero masks from his costume as a template and traced it onto foam paper then cut out. I hole punched the ends and tied with elastic and Voila!
I did an assortment of colors and overall, each masks cost under $1 each! Way cheaper than ordering on Etsy or another site!
Then I just created a basic invite in photoshop with the party info. I used the Fantastic Four logo since it’s his 4th birthday and found various clip art like the POW for the date to dress it up. I cut each invite out and glued them onto scrap booking paper then added the mask with it to create a unique personalized superhero invite!
Making the masks was tedious, but it was SO EASY. All you need is a superhero mask if you already have one to use as a template. You can decorate them up more, but I wanted just basic ones with each child’s name for the invite. If you don’t have a mask to trace yourself, you can get a template here at Cutesy Crafts.
