Lego Birthday Party

Hi Fellow Crafter's

Recently my youngest turned 5 and he is totally in love with lego----so it was natural that for his birthday he wanted a lego theme.  I was pressed for time, so had to come up with quick and easy decor ideas.  Some I found on the web and others I was able to throw together chop-chop.

First I found this on the web
1. lego kirigami -> here  
which I changed into this

then I designed these

And this is how I used them

First one above were printed on A4 sheets of cardstock to represent "hanging" lego blocks for room decor.
The second one was the base for the invitaion, I just typed over the "lego" block with the party details.

The third I printed onto A4 paper and wrapped around a juice carton. (one A4 covers 2 cartons)

My son loves to have a pinata so of course I had to make the easiest one I could think of a "LEGO" block, easy enough I took a plain rectangular cardboard box covered it with one layer of paper mache and took some styrene cups I cut to size and covered with the traditional crepe paper and viola - ok so it's not so pretty but the kids loved it :-)

And no party would be complete with out the party favor boxes- again I went the easy route with a 4 stud lego block ie a square ready bought (gasp) box ti which I added punched out circles raised using double sided tape.

The cake was also a lego block dressed up with some of my sons lego figures. Super easy a rectangular cake and six inverted cupcakes! Not a good pic so I added one of my other sons cake, which was also a lego block.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.
