Fortnite Happy Birthday Banner
The Fortnite Birthday Party Printable Bundle comes with two versions of this banner, one with a black background and white letters and the one you see in this photo, with a white background and black letters.
You can choose to print the option you like better or the one that saves you some printer ink. 🙂
Fortnite Birthday Treat Bag Tags
These tags are super easy to download, print, cut and add to any sort of treat you want. This is what we used for the treats that my son took to school on his birthday.
You can also use them for goodie bags to give away at the birthday party.
You can also use them as thank you cards and have your child write a nice note on the back for the gifts they received.
DIY Party Ideas
I’m not into video games like my son is, but I will say… Fortnite is pretty interesting, with lots of unique visual elements. And that makes for some cute DIY party options.
‘Supply Drop’ Goodie Bags
We used these ‘Supply Drop’ bags as table centerpieces. You could also easily use them as goodie bags for your party guests to take home with treats inside.
But you don’t even need a party for these! You could use them as gift bags for your birthday kid.
We made the bags in just a few easy steps using a stencil and paint.
I used a stencil for the ‘Drop’ that I cut on my Cricut. You can use any sort of stencil and any kind of white paint.
As you can probably see, my paint job was not perfect. But for this, I didn’t mind, opting for it to look a little more rustic and authentic.
After you let the paint dry for a few hours or a day, attach a yellow balloon to the top.

‘V-Buck’ Chocolate Coins
If your child plays Fortnite, then you’ve no doubt hear of V-Bucks! It’s what gamers use to buy things in the game.
I used my Cricut to print and cut out the V-Buck coin design on Cricut sticker paper.
You could also print the design on any sticker paper and cut them out by hand.
We used these as fun decor on the main party table, then let guests take some home.

Fortnite Cake & Cupcake Toppers
I wanted to add some Fortnite themed accents to my son’s cake so I made these one-use toppers out of card stock.
To be clear, these are very simple and not as good quality as you can buy. And they’re made of paper, so don’t get them near a candle!
With all that said, they served the purpose we needed (sitting on a cake for about 30 seconds) and I avoided buying a topper for $15+.
I started making these toppers by cutting out the Fortnite logo and emote shapes on black card stock with my Cricut.
I used a hot glue gun to put the logos onto two cake pop sticks. I glued the sticks to the front of one logo, then glued the other logo on top of the sticks.
The two layers gave the topper more dimension, and it looked good from all angles.
I cut the emote images the same way with my Cricut and glued them on toothpicks.
I also layered the same image twice like I did the main cake topper, to give them more dimensions and make them look good from any angle.
You could use the smaller emote images on individual cupcakes, depending on your chosen birthday party treat.
I decided to put them all on top of our cake that I had covered with blue frosting and green ‘grass’ accents.
You can download a pdf of the Fortnite logo and emote shapes I used here.
