Along with candy, stickers and temporary Avengers tattoos, I had two handmade items in the Ironman treat sacks that I’m going to show you in Part 2 of the Ironman Birthday Party posts. I decided it would be fun to put all the goodies into a clear cone-shaped bag. I was even able to find coordinating colored M&Ms and Sixlets. I just tied the top of the bag together with maroon and gold ribbon.
First up, Superhero Suckers! I found this idea on Pintrest, but there was no further link to anything other than the picture.
I hand-drew the cape pattern on an index card and then traced the shape on the maroon-colored felt. I cut the triangle shape out of the gold-colored felt.
I also punched a small hole in the top-center of each cape using a hole punch. Glue the gold triangles on the capes.
You can see I printed the message “Thanks for Coming!” on white cardstock and used a circle punch to cut them out. Next, using the hole punch I added a hole at the top and bottom of each circle (to insert the sucker)
To assemble just insert the sucker stick through the cape and then through each hole in the circle message piece. Very quick and easy project.
Next up, the Ironman Mask! I also found this on Pintrest which led me to Jessica at Cutesy Crafts. She gives great tips here and has patterns for a whole variety of superhero masks. I made all Ironman for Will’s party. I would suggest going here to get more detailed instructions for making the masks. I’m just going to briefly show you how I made them (plus I forgot to take pictures during the process).
I copied the Ironman pattern (found here) on cardstock and cut out the pieces to use as a pattern. Next, I traced the patterns onto the felt using a fade-away pen. One pattern is traced on gold felt and the other on maroon felt. I cut two of each maroon piece per mask.
First, I sewed the gold piece on top of one of the maroon pieces using gold thread. Remember to also sew around the eye holes. Next, I laid this piece on top of the second maroon piece. In between the two pieces secure the 3/4″ elastic piece (14-inches long). Sew around the whole mask using maroon thread. Also, remember to sew around the eye holes during this step. That’s all there is to it! It was a really fun project and they were a big hit at the party.
