Avengers Assemble Party

 We recently had a “family movie marathon” after watching the  Avengers then visiting our friendly Red Box to rent Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man.  So now we’re really excited to see the new movie too!

 

The Avengers became the theme of my son’s 8th birthday this year and thanks to shopping in my craft stash and finding some surprise cuts on my Cricut , it was pretty easy to pull everything together without needing to go out and purchase much. Gotta love that!

I  actually did enjoy the movies and love how they all came together into one story.  Of course, the men in the movies aren’t too bad to look at for a few hours either….. just sayin’.
I used Cricut  Indie Art cartridge to design the party banner and  cupcake toppers.   Notice the Hulk fist’s on the back wall.   Yep, that’s another cut I found from the Indie Art cartridge too.
DIY Avengers Birthday Party Invitations

Avengers Party Invitations

I made the birthday invitations by designing my own the Avenger symbol by welding a circle and stretching two rectangles together with my Cricut Design Stuido, but you could also make this with your Silhouette Software too.
 Ok, I’ll admit, I’m pretty proud of my design and welding skills on this project.  I was really happy with the way the symbol turned out that I added a larger version to the party banner.
The invitations are made of black cardstock and strips of paper that represent the Super Hero’s colors.

Avengers Party Banner

I used Indie Art cartridge again to make the banner except for Captain America’s Shield.  To make the shield,  I layered red, white and blue circles together then add a white star to the middle.  Easy Peasy!

DIY Avengers Cupcake Toppers
Hulk, Captain America, Thor and Iron Man inspired cupcake toppers that coordinate with the party banner.  Same cuts as the banner, just smaller in size and stuck on a toothpick and I stamped the letters.

DIY Spray Painted Avengers T- Shirts, easy party favors made with @krylon
I gave Avengers T-shirts to the boys as party favors.   I enlarged the same Avengers symbol I made for the invitations to use as a template then spray painted Krylon  flat black paint over the symbol.  The boys totally loved these shirts too.
Tip:  I washed and dried the shirts first, then spray painted them.  Since the shirts are stiff after spray painting , I washed them again inside out on gentle and hung to dry.
Personalized Water Bottles Party Favors.  Dollar Store Water Bottles and yellow vinyl
We invited a few girls to the party since of course the birthday boy has a sister.  He wasn’t thrilled about having yucky girls at the party {which I’m sure he’ll change his mind about one day} but his only request was,  No Pink!  So, I used yellow vinyl to cut out the girls name from Cricut Plantin Schoolbook font.
