Did you see yesterday’s post?! Well, today I’m still in a superhero state of mind, but this time around, I’m sharing all the behind-the-scenes projects that went into executing my superhero picnic. Now, in the spirit of full disclosure, this party did take work, but not a ton. I put the whole thing together in a week – so it’s totally doable. My biggest strategy in creating this party was using the same stamps, dies and inks over and over and over…and over again. So keep reading and I’ll share several tips for executing your own paper crafted parties…and sparing your sanity in the process..
It took me about 1 hour to put these disguises together. I traced the eyemask shape onto felt then cut it out. A few stitches on my sewing machine to attach the ribbon ties and that was it! For the wrists bands, I simply used strips of felt and glued on stars. Felt was a great option for creating these wrists bands since paper would have been much rougher on their little wrists.

12midnight. Laying in bed. Falling asleep. Envisioning the upcoming super hero picnic and brainstorming ideas. Inspiration strikes. Bolt to the craftroom. Make these.
I knew I wanted to create classis superhero shields for this party, but I wasn’t sure how to make it happen. I could draw them and cut them out…OR I could do something way more creative and turn my hexagon dies into shields. Yep. I’ll go with option #2!

I wish I could take full credit for these superhero registration, but I can’t. I got the idea from THIS blog post that I came across in my Google Reader. With permission from the original creator, I designed a child-friendly version of his registration card and now I get to share them with you! The photo frame on these cards is designed to perfectly fit a polaroid from camera.
