Batman Party!

My weekend was so BUSY! Not to mention my work schedule at Scrapaganza the two weeks prior! So I had to squeeze in planning my son's birthday party. I only had a few hours while working the crop at the store to whip out the paper decorations. Fortunately my son wanted a batman party and I had the Batman cricut cartridge!  Above is the banner made from the cartridge.
The masks, arm cuffs and a utility belt made from the cartridge.
My son wearing his batman gear and acting goofy! He turned 4 this year. :)

FYI... doing the mask "fit to page" on a 12x12 mat was too big even for an adult. I think I cut Kevin's mask at 7 inches... maybe a tad bigger, and I might have gotten by cutting it a little smaller because the eye holes were just a little wide. I believe I cut the cuffs at 6 inches? His belt is definitely cut at 3inches. He's a skinny boy so we used 6 links only.
I don't have the cricut cake machine and I stink at decorating cakes so I'm pretty proud that I did this. Kevin is allergic to wheat, dairy and eggs (as well as some other things) so I couldn't buy a decorated cake this year. Hence why I had to decorate myself. LOL.... however we did find a boxed cake mix that fit the bill with just a few alterations (Betty Crocker Gluten-free and replace the called for egg and butter). It tasted like a brownie! So, I may need to get me a cricut cake machine since I plan to make cakes and cupcakes now that I have that option! LOL

Thanks for looking!
