My son just had his third birthday, and what better way to celebrate for a little boy than with superheroes? Today I get to bring you the superhero invitations – printable included. I like to create the printable for you with a full tutorial so that you are not just seeing what we did but can re-create any pieces you want to do for your own party.
That will be my goal with all of the party ideas I bring to you. I am excited to build up to the superhero extravaganza. We had a lot of fun celebrating my little man, and I am thrilled to bring you into the loop with all we have been up to in our home.
The first thing you need to do is to print out the printable. My fabulous husband is the one with the graphic skills. I was able to tell him what I envisioned in my mind. He was able to execute it. Trim off the white part, ideally with a paper cutter for a clean cut, and you have the image perfect for the front of your folded invitation.
This was the outside of the card. I cut the yellow piece of stock paper to 5.5″ x 7.5″ to accommodate the revealed edge, become a folding card and fit inside the envelope.
The interior was simple. We created it in a Word document, and you can do the same. The top font is a downloadable font called “Bangers.” The rest of the font is Abadi MT Condensed Extra Bold. We created a four part table with a height of 3.5″ and a width of 5″. Everything is centered. The funny thing about this invitation that we all got a good laugh at is that the date says August 23rd, and I didn’t catch it. I sent these out with that date even though the party was on November 23rd. I had a friend say, “I know you like to prepare ahead but…” Creative people sometimes loose track of the details.
We took a picture of Corban’s “super guy” costume we got from Costume Express and used for our creative superhero play. I took that picture, sized it to 3.5″ by 5″ and added it to the top inside of the card.
With invitations in the mail, it was time to move on to party preparations. Stay tuned for more of what we did to create a superhero party theme.
