Back in 2014, Hey Kessy’s Mansy Abesamis watched and fell in love with the movie The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (starring Ben Stiller). When her birthday came, she decided to throw a party with the theme revolving around the quirky character and his imaginative spirit. See how you can recreate or take your favorite aspects from this DIY bash!

There was a glass signage that revealed the party theme as well as handwritten table cards with the names of all the special people in Mansy’s life. Family and friends from high school and college were invited, and since none of them had ever attended an art workshop, Mansy was excited to get them making. Crafting truly is for everyone—young and old, males and females, amateurs and pros!

Temporary tattoos related to the movie were made using temporary tattoo sheets from the Hey Kessy shop.

The birthday girl surprised guests by teaching a mini workshop. Can you guess what they made that day?

Friends and family were invited to make made leather wallets because in the film, a photographer gave Walter one for his birthday. (The story pretty much revolved around it!)

Even the boys were game to make their own leather projects!

Walter loves clementine cake, so for her birthday cake, Mansy served orange cake with a papercut cake topper she designed herself!
