Sonic Birthday Party Invitations
The perfect invitations add to the sense of anticipation around the party. Whether you need something that’s no-fuss, no-muss, or you’re eager to get the craft supplies out for original, handmade creations, here are some ideas for your Sonic the Hedgehog party:
Order colorful, sturdy, official Sega-licensed invitations from Celebrate Express ($3.49 for eight). These invitations feature Sonic on the cover and in the inside you have space for all the party details.
Customized photo invitations
You’ll find several websites where you can upload a photo of the birthday boy or girl to create custom, personalized Sonic the Hedgehog invitations. Have them professionally printed and shipped to you (Uprint Invitations, from $15 and up). This is one of the more pricier options but they do look good!
Sonic face invitations
These are a little out of the ordinary, but if you have some time and some skill with the scissors, you can create very cool and memorable invitations. Fold bright blue cardstock in half to create standup cards. Next, trace Sonic’s facial features (eyes, nose, and mouth) on a sheets of paper, using a thick Sharpie-style black pen. This is easier than it sounds: Sonic’s features are very easy to draw, even for the non-artist. Scan the image and print out as many copies (on white paper or cardstock) as you will need for the number of cards required. Now cut the eyes, nose, and mouths out in one piece, and glue the cut-out to the blue card. You can leave the card as is, or for added effect, you can create Sonic’s trademark spikes: cut the upper corners off the card, and then cut a couple of curving triangle shapes out of the sides of the card. Voila: you’ve got a big, bright, totally unique Sonic invitation.
Hedgehog cookie invitations
Here’s a sweet idea for a birthday invitation that’s sure to be a hit, and it’s easy to do, too! Roll out your favorite sugar cookie recipe, or use store-bought sugar cookie dough. Then cut out cookies using a five-pointed star-shaped cookie cutter, and cut off the bottom two points. When the cookies are baked, cover them in bright blue icing. When dry, using decorator icing to pipe Sonic’s facial features in the middle of the cookie, or cut the shapes out of rolled fondant. Use black or brown decorator icing for Sonic’s pupils, nose, mouth, and eyebrows. Place each cookie in a clear mylar bag, along with the party details rolled into a small scroll, and tie the bag with a blue ribbon.
