Everyone enjoy’s a good Riddle don’t they? That is why today I want to share with you these awesome DIY Riddler Party Invitations I created!
A few years ago, I put together a Batman Birthday party for my husband. It took several months to put it all together because I wanted it to be an adult themed party so I ended up making a lot of the party decorations myself, including these Riddler Party Invitations. They were certainly fun to make and they were my own creation! 🙂
In all, these invitations only cost be about $10 and a few hours of my time for about 10 invitations. They certainly are still one of my favorite creations!
Supplies Needed to Make Riddler Party Invitations:
- Green Chinese Take-Out Boxes- I found these at my local party store for about $0.40 each. You need 1 for each invite you plan to give.
- Thin Black Sharpie Marker (use for the outline)
- Thick Black Sharpie Marker (use to fill in the ?)
- Black Cardstock (or a piece of cardboad)
- A Riddler Question Mark Silhouette. (I just Googled the Riddler’s question mark. There are many variations so you can choose which one you like best) I used a large one for the top and 2 sides, then the sides that have the wire handle going through them, I scaled the image down smaller to trace smaller question marks around it.
- Riddler Invitation template. (I created this myself in Microsoft Publisher)
How to Make Riddler Party Invitations:
- Once you have the Riddler’s symbol picked out, print it on white paper and cut it out. I found it really hard to trace a flimsy piece of white paper so I traced the image on a black piece of cardstock so it was easier to trace onto the box. You can also use a piece of cardboard. Repeat this process for the small question marks if you choose to use them.
- Take your thin black sharpie marker and trace the question marks on the sides you wish. I put one large one on the flat sides and top and used the smaller question marks for the sides where the wire handles are.
- Take your thick black sharpie marker and color in the question marks. This makes them really stand out against the green.
- Once the box is completed, allow them to dry. Since the box is typically smooth, you don’t want to smear the sharpie so be careful.
- Create your invitation. You can create a business card size and it should fit nicely inside the box once it’s closed. To ensure these really look awesome, you can laminate them like I did. I laminated them at my local FedEx Kinkos.
- Place your invitation card inside and give to the recipient.
For reference, here is what the final card looks like:
Aren’t these just so cool looking? Sure hope you will make them yourself!
