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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Carefully place the felt on and smooth out any wrinkles.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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!

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

Now your title page is ready for the album!

    Such clever TMNT ideas! Too bad my son is now 20. He would have loved this. Probably still would. Thanks Monica

      Thanks Farley! 20 yr olds would totally love this, if only because it reminds them of their youth. 😉
