I always love to do birthday invites on my own rather than taking a print out. Angry birds are basically an easy shape to make and hence they doesn’t need more skill. This time I tried a pop up card…Since s more fond of blue and red angry birds, I wanted both the birds on her invitation card.
Things needed :
Red, blue, brown,black and green tinted paper
White thread or elastic band
Yellow or any colour chart
Cut the chart into A4 size and fold it into half. Again make a fold. Now open and make a slit exactly at the centre and make a mountain fold above and below.
These will be the beak of the bird
Take red tinted paper and cutout the shape of red angry bird. Cut out the place where there should be beak
Apply glue and stick the bird onto the chart matching the hole in the red tinted paper with the beaks in the chart and add the eyes
The cover of the invitation can be decorated as you wish but make sure that its in sync with the theme
I made a sling shot with brown tinted paper and thread.
And for invitation wordings be creative with it too….
THEME SETTER BANNER
This forms the backdrop of the cake table and hence we decided to print all the angry birds…Happy 4th Birthday was added to the backdrop so that in all the snaps u will see the birds along with this message
Welcome banner was designed in an unique way with a nest and 3 angry birds…wondering whats unique…..We added a photo of my daughter in white dress along with the eggs in the nest. That was really awesome…Thanx @sri Balaji medias solutions for the creative.
We bought red, green, black, yellow, white, blue balloons and decorated them as angry birds and pigs. Angry birds printable templates are available online or you can draw them….
Gas balloons (Helium balloons) decorated as angry birds was hit among kids..The floating balloons looked so real as birds.
We even used our party favours and Take away gifts as decoration.
PIN THE BEAK
REAL ANGRY BIRD GAME
PIN THE BEAK
We just drew a Big red bird in the centre of a chart surrounded by all the other birds and I cutout beaks with brown tinted paper.
The best part is the eye mask that we used. I bought a red eye mask from the shop and covered the eyes with angry bird eyes and attached a beak too…It was so apt for the theme and looked gud on people wearing the eye mask.
I started the tradition of making the piñata when my daughter was 3year old for her DORA BDAY PARTY. It was Dora in which I was introduced to piñata. The kids enjoyed the piñata and for this theme also I wanted to make a piñata.
It was really easy to make angry birds theme piñata.
I made a huge balloon paper mache.
Decorated it with red crepe paper. Added eyes and beak..
Filled it with goodies and hung it.
REAL GAME – ANGRY BIRDS
We had painted card board boxes in different colours and stacked them. We even put pigs made of green balloons.
Angry birds plush toys were given to kids. They had to strike the building blocks.
The game can be set outdoors and you can add props like TNT etc….Go wild
I just used coloured boxes…
U can make a playable angry bird cake…3D cakes are available but we did a 2D cake of red angry bird…
I was searching everywhere to find party favour boxes but all I could get was colourful paper bags decorated as angry birds. Iam not much satisfied with it. Try my party favours these are time consuming and u have to start earlier depending upon the number of kids.
3D ANGRY BIRD
Glue and water in the ratio 1:2
Brown tinted paper
White and black chart
Crepe papers in all the colours of Angry birds.
Blow the balloons to a desired size.
Tear the newspaper into bits, dip it in glue and stick on the balloon covering all the spaces. Leaving the narrow end of the balloon open.
Allow the first layer to dry
Repeat the procedure for 2 or 3 layers
The newspapers adheres together when they are torn rather than cut with scissors
Allow it untouched for 24 hrs. Take any colour crepe paper as the angry bird u want (red, blue, green,yellow). Avoid black n white they don’t look good
Pinch the balloon and the newspaper retains the shape of the balloon.
The newspaper collapses if there s not adequate layers or if it is not fully dried
Now paste the desired coloured crepe paper and add detailing as eyes and beak….
This can be used as a pen holder too.
