Have you ever tried throwing an Iron Man party? He is my youngest son’s favorite Avenger and, of course, the theme he chose for his birthday party. In case you haven’t tried this theme, let me tell you: finding Iron Man only invitations is hard. It’s like companies don’t want to split up the Avengers because you cannot find them on their own. To solve the problem, I made my own. If your little one decides he wants an Iron Man birthday party then these will save you time and money. These easy DIY Iron Man birthday invitations come together quickly and your kid will love them.

- Ivory Cards and Envelopes (I got mine at Hobby Lobby)
- Avengers Book
- Glue Runner
- Party Stamps
- R.S.V.P. Stamp
- Yellow Or Red Cardstock
- Acrylic Block
- Black Pigment Ink
- Red or Gold Stickles (Use Red for Yellow Cardstock and Gold for Red Cardstock)
Open your pack of cards and fold in half along the pre-formed crease.
Next, cut out pictures of Iron Man from your Avengers book.
Measure your pictures to ensure that they fit on the card. Trim any pictures as needed.
After trimming all of your pictures, attach them to the fronts of your cards with the glue runner.
Next, line up your party stamp and 2 star stamps on your acrylic block.
Ink your stamps with black ink and stamp onto the fronts of your cards.
Now cut your yellow/red cardstock into 8 rectangles.
Next, stamp each rectangle with your R.S.V.P. stamp in black ink.
After your ink has dried, stamp the top right corner of each rectangle with the star banner stamp.
Again, allow the ink to dry and then stamp “Birthday” next to the stamped banner.
- If you use the same birthday stamp set that I did, the “Birthday” is attached to the word “Happy” but I cut them apart.
Fill the stamped stars on the banners with red stickles and set aside to dry.
- If you are using red cardstock, fill in the stars with gold stickles instead.
After your stickles have dried, attach your rectangles to the inside of your cards with your tape runner.
