Okay... here I am planning my son's 9th birthday... he wants a Diary of a Wimpy Kid themed party and there are NO PARTY DECORATIONS AVAILABLE!! What's a Mom to do other than make everything! :)
This blog post will be the first of four posts about this super fun party I created for my son. First thing's first... here is the card I made him, compete with "Greg" the main character of this super popular children's book series.
The card base is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" orange card stock with the corners rounded with my 1/2" corner chomper. Next, come the layer of black card stock, measuring 4 1/8" x 5 5/8" and a layer of wide ruled notebook paper measuring 4" x 5 1/4". I printed the sentiment directly on the notebook paper.
Here is Greg. He's the main character of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book series by Jeff Kinney.
This is the sentiment I created using Times New Roman font and an orange box, complete with the shadow. I made this file to mimic the movie cover for the first Wimpy Kid movie.
The inside of the card got a TPC studio stamp and a piece of "stinky cheese" (come back tomorrow to see how I made "cheese touch" cheese for the goody bags too). You could add some more notebook paper to the inside for a cohesive look.
This little piece of stinky cheese measure 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" piece of yellow paper.
I love the black eyelets I added to the left side of the card. It sure adds a boy-friendly touch and mimics the look of the holes in a notebook.
Come back tomorrow for directions for making the "stinky cheese" and how to make a "cheese touch" game. I'll also have a post about the goody bags all the kids will be leaving the party with.
One last thing: here is the link to the "Greg Heffley" headshot SVG file. If you are planning a "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" party, you'll NEED this file! :)
