Hudson’s 3 year old Superhero Birthday Party via Cricut
Post contains affiliate links to a product I’m pretty much in love with.
This past weekend my little God Son Hudson turned 3 years old! His mom threw an AMAZING superhero themed birthday party that was a hit…even for the adults! Best party is she did most of the decorations with her Cricut Air 2. Check it out…
I arrive Friday at lunch time and less than 2 hours later we had the her circut out and we were making decorations for the party that was tomorrow. I was in charge of stars. Nana (her Mother In-law), was in charge of making strings to tie the balloons with as well as blowing up balloons.
This was the “main table” aka…the dessert table. She found this idea on pinterest (imagine that). Everything was perfectly themed and turned out amazing! Hanging the black (plastic) table cloth behind the stars made everything better! It made the colors of the starts show. Lets take a deeper look!
According to Kim she thought these were going to be the hardest but they end up being the easiest. She had the cricut cut a zillion little batman shapes out in vinyl and then she just peeled away the excess and attached them to the bags. These were the party favors.
These were my favorite. Using her cricut she had felt sheets and cut little caps. However when she went to pull the caps off the sticky mat the backing didn’t look so good. She got some bond and ironed it on the back and fixed it. When I got there. She cut little strings and together we glued the strings to the capes and tied them around the bottles cutting the edges off. They were a HIT!
This one took some thinking because the punch servers had a curve to them so sticking something flat didn’t look right. We also didn’t want to make it in card stock incase the punch “sweats”. Therefore we used the cricut to cut on the Batman and Robin mask. Then we simply attached it with a dab of hot glue so it would peel right off (and it did). With the mask being vinyl, they wouldn’t bleed or fall apart if they got wet.
Using black card stock, she found a batman pattern and cut out mini batman heads. She used spray glue to glue them together with a toothpick between them and then stuck them on the cupcakes. I recommend making enough to where you can “hide” the toothpick, just looks better.
These were awesome! Kim purchased a ton of old comic books and tore the pages out. She found a star pattern and used her cricut to cut stars out of the comic sheets. We then hot glued them to a string and hung them up behind the balloon wall. We used the left over ones for table decorations.
This was the kid tables! These were round tables that had 6 chairs. Kim used her cricut to make the center pieces. She found a building pattern and had her machine cut out the buildings on card stock and then she glued them together and attached them to the lanterns. At each place setting she had a “BAM” place setter (cut by her cricut) as well as a super hero cape and matching mask! Kids LOVED it!
This machine was a lifesaver for this party and took it to the next level! The hardest part is going to be how is she going to do Charles 1st birthday and how is she going to top this party! If you are a mom or a teacher I cannot recommend this thing enough! I get lots of request from teachers and moms to make things for them. If you want your classroom or your child’s birthday party decorations to be talked about you should invest in this machine. And you are in luck, they are on sale till the end of October so go ahead and order you one and put it away till Christmas or just #TreatYoSelf.
