I can’t believe my God Daughters are going to be three! This year for their birthday party, they wanted a superhero theme. I volunteered to make superhero invitations and naturally, I had to get a little creative and crafty with gift wrapping their presents. Last year was simple, and I made them Popsicle birthday cards, and for their first birthday I did some coordinated pink and purple gift wrapping using recycled food boxes.
I designed little superhero emblems, a “J” for Super Jaime, and a “B” for Super Brooklyn. I also free handed some superhero masks out of Astrobrights paper and cut them all out. I glued them on their plain gift bags.
I also did the same thing for the gift boxes.
I wanted to add a cape on the back, so I cut out some wrapping paper in the shape of a cape and taped thin floral wire to underside so that it would stick out and look like the boxes were in flight.
I couldn’t help myself with this one! They make me laugh! Here are a couple photos.
For the invitations, I designed them on iPiccy.com for free. I used the emblems I made to look like they are shining in the sky like in Batman. I also added a colorful skyscraper and some superhero onomatopoeia with a polka dot background. They didn’t take long to make and I had fun doing it for them.
I printed them out on photo paper. I love how everything turned out!
