Lego Ninjago birthday invitations

Lego Ninjago Invitations

We discovered Ninjago last summer, shortly after becoming converts to Netflix. For all my reservations about fighting, I am of course bought into the underlying theme of “unlocking your full potential” so I graciously accept the hush which embraces the little people as they watch an episode.

Of course, there was little surprise that Ninjago would become the theme for the boys 4th birthday party. And with a little help from Pinterest the idea came to being.

Invitations were important, the boys’ birthday is January 12th, which is always difficult with the Christmas holidays, so this year we got ahead of ourselves and sent invitations to classmates in December.

I loved bringing this idea to life after seeing it on Pinterest. With only a photo of the finished article to go by, I thought I’d share this, it really was so straightforward.

I started off with two templates, one for the Lego head to give the insert of the invitation and one to help me create Ninjago eyes for the Lego head.

These were printed, two per page onto A4 yellow card, and cut out. Using a sharpie I did my best to add Ninja eyes onto each Lego head.

With the Lego heads prepared we then decided the Ninjas would be Kai (red) and Jay (blue) and each invite required one sheet of A4 card for the wrap around.

Starting by folding the card around the Lego head, leaving a little space so the head can slide in and out.

You can estimate where your Lego head will sit inside the invitation, and using a craft knife create the space for the eyes behind the wrap.

With the eye space cut out you need to make sure where you fold the card is the right space, by holding the Lego head in place and flipping the card over you can then score a line across to create the fold.

With the folds in place, you can then remove the side pieces (so the invitation carries a little less bulk).

I managed to pick up a great deal on double side tape at The Works and got to work assembling the wrap.

    You make it look so easy. Lovely to see homemade invitations rather than shop-bought.
