My Superhero Obsession

For the past few months, I've had quite the obsession with superhero images on cards. Ironically, I've never been a big comic-book lover, but there's something about the graphic images that I can't get enough of.

In the July/August issue of Paper Crafts, I was lucky enough to have two superhero-themed projects in the issue. You can see one of the cards HERE. The other project was included in the online/digital version of the issue (in the Back-to-School section). Here it is:


They are lunchbox notes for kids. I started with some digital papers from Jessica Sprague, resized them, and printed them. Then, I adhered the papers to a colored cardstock backing before die-cutting the notes. I added an element on each one that will give me a small space to write a "good luck on the test!" or "I love you!" note (or I could write more on the back, too).

I added the O-ring so I could clip it onto my daughter's backpack and add a note to it.


You could use the same idea and make gift tags. I put some ribbon on a few to show you:

Superhero Tags



I love that even though they all look different, with the hybrid, they are easily mass-producible. Not that I'm going to be mass-producing these. ;)

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

  14. I too have been much enamored with superheroes! I have 3 little boys and I have been trying to convince one of them to have a superhero or comic book birthday party and no one will do it! I want to put giant speech bubbles all over the house and wear a cape and so much more. Don't they understand??? Sooo..I think I might make my bunco group do it! We have themes and dress up so they may have to live out my fantasy bwahahahaha!
