Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Photo Album

This week we are talking all about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party ideas. With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie coming out, turtle power is going to be the talk of the town. And little boys everywhere are going to want a TMNT party of their own.

Today I’ve got some ideas to jump start your party. Let’s talk about a themed photo album scrapbook!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Themed Photo Album Cover

I love the idea of creating a simple photo album to document my TMNT party. You don’t need to be a scrapbooker to have an awe worthy record of your gathering. Just follow these easy steps.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Start by grabbing a green photo album, some TMNT colored ribbons and some wiggle eyes.

I found my green album at Target but it had words on the front that wouldn’t really work. So I decided to cover it up.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

First I needed to fill in the little window to even the cover out a bit. I started by measuring the size of the window.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then I got a piece of thin cardboard and trimmed it down to size.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I just placed the cardboard square into the window. I didn’t adhere it at all, just placed it there.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then I trimmed a piece of coordinating felt to fit the size of the album cover.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I used my tape runner to stick the felt on the album. Since the tape runner is permanent it will hold the felt just fine.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Carefully place the felt on and smooth out any wrinkles.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Now it’s time to add the ribbon masks. Start by trimming a piece of ribbon to wrap around your album. To keep the end of the ribbon from fraying I added a bead of Glossy Accents across the front and the back. You could also sew it if you prefer.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then tie each ribbon into a knot on one end. That gives the mask the look of being tied.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Once again I used my tape runner to stick down the ribbon.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Place the ribbon across the front, which used to be the back but is now the front, of the album.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then flip the album over, add more tape and stick the ribbon across the back.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Once again I used Glossy Accents along the edge of the ribbon. This time I used it to adhere down the end of the ribbon.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

To finish off the album I added a bit of Glossy Accents to stick down the wiggle eyes.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

And now you have a fun themed photo album to document your party!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Journal Cards

Inside my album I like to have a few themed cards to write down details of the party. You can easily DIY them in no time.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

All you need is some 4×6 note cards, colored paper, and once again…wiggle eyes!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I want each card to have a little turtle accent. So I cut green paper into 2″ x 4″ long.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

For the masks I cut colored paper into 1″ x 2″ strips.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Once you have all of the strips cut you can tape them together to create your turtle accents.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Add your wiggle eyes and then stick the turtle accent to the 4×6 notecards.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Now you have several themed notecards to add to your photo album scrapbook.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Title Page

Did you realize that you can include vertical photos in your photo album scrapbook? Let me show you the easy way to keep those vertical photos vertical!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

With a little bit of trimming we can fit our vertical photo into our album.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Since the pockets are 4″ tall I need to trim 2″ off the bottom of my photo.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I’m using 4×6 notecards as the base to hold all the pieces of my title page. Just stick the top of the photo and the top card and the bottom of the photo on the bottom of the card.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

To keep my TMNT theme going I filled out the rest of the 6 inch width with green paper.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then I added some colored paper strips to replicate the turtle masks.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

What else do we need to add but some wiggle eyes?!!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

With the remaining white space you can write your title or use some letter stickers. I like to use a ruler to space out my letters.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Themed Scrapbook Album http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2eg #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Now your title page is ready for the album!

How cute is that? I love the way the photo looks with some TMNT accents!

This week we are talking all about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party ideas. With the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie coming out, turtle power is going to be the talk of the town. And little boys everywhere are going to want a TMNT party of their own.

Today I’ve got some ideas to jump start your party. Let’s talk snacks and goodie bags!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Snack Ideas

I’m no Martha Stewart so I wanted my TMNT snacks to be simple. But still CUTE! I started with creating some themed cookies.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Gather your cookies, some white frosting, green food coloring, candy eyes and colorful fruit roll-ups.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

It didn’t take much food coloring to turn that frosting green. Just add a few drops and get to mixing.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Once you are all mixed up you can frost your cookies (or cupcakes if you prefer).

Now that’s one pretty green cookie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I was so excited to see that Fruit by the Foot came in all the right colors. Red, blue, purple and orange. Yippee!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I just peeled off a bit of fruit roll-up and placed it across the cookie to create the mask.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Now all these cookies need are some candy eyes.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I used a bit of frosting to stick the eyes onto my cookie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Four fun TMNT cookies ready to go!

Now it’s time to quench our party goers thirst. Find some drinks in green bottles, streamers in the TMNT colors, and some eye stickers.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Cut a strip of streamer to wrap around the bottle.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

The streamers were a bit wide, and see through, so I folded them in half.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then tie the streamers in a knot.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then trim off the excess streamer.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

To keep the streamers from sliding around you can always add a bit of tape.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Add the eyeballs and you have some fun TMNT drinks to go with those cookies.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Goodie Bags

When the party is over you are going to want to send your guests home with a bit of TMNT goodies.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

All you need is some green bags, colored paper, and wiggle eyes.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I trimmed each strip of paper to 2 inches by 6 inches.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Those dimensions allow the paper to hang off the bag just a bit.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

I want to cut the paper to resemble a tied mask. To keep it even I folded the end of the paper just a bit (don’t crease it, just hold it).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Then take your scissors and cut from the corner at an angle.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Add some adhesive and stick the mask to the bag.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Party Ideas: Snacks & Goodie Bags http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2e8 #TMNT #DIY #birthday

Add some wiggle eyes to the bag and your mask is complete.

Look at those adorable goodie bags just waiting to go home with your special guests.
