Pokemon Party .. Pokemon Character and Ball Perler Beads

And we end the party! The last thing on the Pokemon Party is the Perler Beads shaped like Pokemon Characters and Balls.  I did a search on Google and Pinterest and found several different shapes then we got to it. My youngest is so much like me and can do these tedious activities. We had 20 treat bags to do and we want 2 per bag so we made 40 of these!  My oldest thankfully did all the ball ones for the party.




What you need:
Perler Beads (Hobby Lobby or Michael's - In the colors you need)
Perler Bead Board
Hot Iron
Perler Bead Paper
Designs (Google or Pinterest)

We printed all the different balls and characters. We then copied the design onto a board, we used it like a math game and counted how many up and down. Once your design is done you take the perler bead paper and put on top and you put the hot iron on. We found out that 60 seconds left on then press the corners and make sure everything is connected. Once cool you flip off the board put the paper on the back side and repeat with the iron. They are done after that, you can make a necklace or just leave them like we did.


I was able to get pictures of my youngest making them.
My oldest did it late at night without picutres.

Pokemon Party ... Pikachu Candy Clay Topper

And to top the cupcake's why not add a Pikachu! I thought this would be a fun way to add a little more to the themed party. I found tons of cool ideas, but of course when I got time to make these it was the morning of the party! So it was a make it or break it moment, and it was a super easy but cute topper!


What You Need:
Candy Clay - Yellow
Candy Clay - Red
Black Edible Marker
Circle Cookie Cutter (Extra Small & Large)

MAKE CANDY CLAY:
For those who have not seen my previous post on how to make modeling chocolate (aka candy clay) all pictured but the orange.

Modeling Chocolate
12oz Candy Melts
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup

Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup.  It will become thick and form a ball.  Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry.  Takes a few hours or over night is best. (Alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).




MAKE TOPPERS:
Roll out your yellow candy clay (I had some pre-made in the fridge). Rolled it out (using a little powder sugar) and used my circle cutter. When I had enough circles I took a black edible marker and drew on my face and ears. To make them a little 3D I took some red candy clay and used my extra small circle cutter to make cheeks. I put it on top of the frosted cupcakes with the cupcake wrappers.

Pokemon Party ... Pikachu Cupcake Wrappers

And this week we wrap this Pokemon Party! It really didn't seem that much was done but when I blog about it sure is a lot! This last one was another super easy one! I saw on several pinterest pin's these cupcake wrappers. I thought this would be a perfect way to go with my theme AND even though I was told outside food to the bowling alley I COULD bring cake!

I did a search on Ebay and came across this digital download for Pokemon Pikachu Cupcake Wrappers. NOW I waited a little late for these (uh hum .. the night before). Thankfully even when I downloaded like 9pm I received the digital download within 20 minutes.


What You Need:
Cupcakes 
Frosting (I used my Sturdy Buttercream)
Yellow Heavy Card Stock
Scissors
Tape

Thankfully I had Cole and he is old enough to cut things out straight as could be. I baked my cupcakes, I waited to frost them until I put the wrappers on. After all the wrappers were cut, we attached them to the cupcakes. I wrapped the wrapper around the un-frosted cupcakes and attached with a little tape, make sure snug so they stay when transporting them. Once the wrapper was attached I frosted with yellow tinted Buttercream.  Since we had to drive them I did my trick of putting in a clear cup and wrapped in a clear bag and tied with a bow.

Remodel Update

We are still in the middle of remodeling our house. Last few years I've been gathering items so we could be ready when we started and also not to have to go broke buying all the items at once. 

One thing we did learn is make sure you have everything stored correctly AND you double check how much of an item you will need!  We found one of the cabinets we bought got some water damage in the garage and had to replace it. AND we didn't calculate the area we would need for tile right. We picked up a tile I loved but when it came time to put it up I found we were 3 sheets short! So off to the store we went to find out that tile has been discontinued and NO one had it any more. Off to the store to return the tile we bought and picked a different style. A little more expensive but it turned out really pretty.



Have a GREAT Holiday Weekend!

Pokemon Party Food ... Charizard Flames

Again since we couldn't bring outside food to the party I put it in my thank you bags the kids took home. I did a google search and found several pictures of the characters. Yesterday I showed the Charmeleon Bites (AKA Cheetos), so I found this fire breathing character and had an idea. So I came up with Charizard Flames (using the hot Cheetos).


What You Need:
Clear Bags (Sm 50 pk $1)
Hot Cheetos (I bought mine in Winco Bulk Section)
Card Stock / Printer
Stapler

I googled Charizard + .png (png files don't have a background so you can copy into word). I copied the pictures into a word file and added the words Charizard Flames (using the Pokeomon font I downloaded for free). I didn't make tents and waste the paper, I just made 8 per sheet (you can use a Avery Template so it was squares). I went to the bulk section at Winco and picked up hot Cheetos. I put a handful into each clear bag and then added the label with a staple.
