This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading. All projects, ideas, and opinions are my own.

Ever since seeing the Trolls movie I am even more obsessed with rainbows and glitter and so are my kids. It’s no surprise that when deciding on class Valentines this year my oldest immediately started brainstorming Trolls-themed ones. Trolls love glitter, rainbows, and scrapbooking. These DIY rainbow notebook Valentines have it all covered! The only way they could channel any more awesome Troll energy would be if they sang when you opened them. Alas, we haven’t quite mastered that one but maybe your child could sing while handing them out to classmates. Either way, kids will love receiving these Valentines and parents will love one less piece of candy coming home from school that day.

These notebooks are such a great quality! When you’re getting small notebooks you expect them to be a little flimsy and flexible. I was so surprised to find these notebooks had thick, almost canvas-like, covers that were incredibly sturdy. That makes them perfect for crafting with because they will hold up to glue, paint, and more.

Cooler Than Bowties Card

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for Dr. Who crafts. Actually, I’m a sucker for nerdy crafts in general. If it’s fun, cool, and nerdy then I’m in! With Valentine’s Day reminders all over the place you can’t help but think about greeting cards. Come on, they’re in your face everywhere you look. That has put my nerdy brain into overdrive with a million new card ideas (including a Buffy the Vampire Slayer card that I’m beyond excited about and this Hello Sweetie card). First up is this awesome Dr. Who inspired Cooler Than Bowties card!

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

Materials

  • Plain Taupe Card (think the color of Matt Smith’s suit)
  • Black Marker
  • Pencil
  • Cardstock in 2 Differing Shades of Red
  • Red Brad
  • Glue Runner

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

I have altered these sketches with a photo editor to darken the pencil lines so you can see what my sketches looked like. My actual sketches were in pencil so that I could erase and/or fix any mistakes.

Step 1

Sketch an outline of a fez on your cardstock that is the lighter shade of red. Sketch an outline of a bowtie on the darker red cardstock.

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

Step 2

Cut out your sketches. Cut out a small square of the lighter red and glue is to the center of the bowtie. Trim any edges necessary.

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

Step 3

Trace all of these lines with your black marker. Add 2 lines on either side of the center of the bowtie. See the picture for reference.

 

Step 4

Place a red brad in the center of the “top” of the fez. Glue your fez and bowtie to the front of the card as pictured below.

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

Step 5

Write “The Only Thing Cooler Than Bowties…” as you see in the picture.

Tip:

  • If you don’t like (or trust) your handwriting, type it on the computer and print it out for the front of your card.

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

Step 6

Cut out a rectangle (smaller than the size of your card) from your cardstock. Write (or print out) “… Is You!” in the center.

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

Step 7

Next, outline the edges of your rectangle as you did with the fez and bowtie.

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

Step 8

Glue your rectangle to the inside of your card. I chose to place mine at the angle but you don’t have to. Centering it looks great as well.

 

Let your friends and family know how cool they are with the Dr. Who inspired Cooler than Bowties card. No special occasion needed.

This specific card is being used as a Valentine but it totally works for birthdays, graduations, and more. Frankly, do you really need a reason to let your friends and family know how cool they are? I don’t think so. However, this seriously comes together so quickly you can totally whip it up in time for Valentine’s Day! (When you’re done, make sure you check out these additional fun and easy card tutorials.)

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Recycled Pokeball Valentine Box

The dreaded Valentine box… when I was in grade school these were done a lot differently. If you made one at all, you bought a shoe box to class and covered it with construction paper and stickers. Now you make them at home and apparently covering them with stickers isn’t cool enough. I offered to make my son’s box this year and allowed him to pick the theme he wanted, thinking he’d pick a sports team or something like that. Somehow, I always forget that he is my nerdy little mini-me. He, of course, chose Pokemon. After a quick freak-out panic, I saw a Poptart box and was inspired to make a Pokeball Valentine box.

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

 

You won't believe how this Pokeball Valentine box is made! Easy and recycled! #valentinesday Click To Tweet

 

Materials

  • Empty Poptart Box
  • White Acrylic
  • White & Red Sheets of Cardstock (8.5×11)
  • Mod Podge (Gloss)
  • 1-3/8” Black Ribbon
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Lid of Plastic Gerber Snack Container
  • Small Piece of Velcro
  •  Box Cutter

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 1

Cover the outside of your box in 2 coats of white acrylic paint. Allow the first coat to dry completely before applying the second coat.

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 2

Measure the width your cardstock needs to be by turning your box on its side and measuring to about the middle. (See picture above.) Next cut 2 strips in that size from the 8.5 side of your white cardstock.

 

Step 3

Repeat step 2 with your red cardstock. This gives you four strips of paper (2 red, 2 white).

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 4

Attach your strips of paper with Mod Podge, aligning your paper edges with the flap and edge of your box.

Note: There will be a gap on the unopened side of your box.

Step 5

Measure the top and bottom of your box using the remaining cardstock and trim cardstock to fit. Attach colors correspondingly with your Mod Podge.

Step 6

With the leftover cardstock, cover the gap left on the unopened side of the box.

Step 7

Cover your entire box with your Mod Podge. This gives it the shine like a Pokeball. Allow the whole project to dry (about an hour). Have lunch; take a nap, whatever while you wait.

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 8

Once the Mod Podge has dried, attach your ribbon around the center of the box, starting at the flap.

Tips:

  • Leave extra length on both ends of your ribbon so that there is overhang.
  • Prevent waste by attaching the ribbon while still on the spool and only cutting after the end is glued.

 

Step 9

Attach your snack container lid to the middle using hot glue to create the button.

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 10

Attach one half of your Velcro to the extra length of ribbon overhanging the flap with hot glue.

Tip:

  • Turn the box so that the white is on top. Place the Velcro on the flap that is on top (or in front) with the box in this position.

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 11

Place adjoining piece of Velcro onto the attached piece.

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 12

Fold down flap without Velcro. Place hot glue on the top of the second piece of Velcro and press to folded flap. This will make sure the Velcro aligns correctly when box is closed.

Tip:

  • Allow glue to dry before trying to open.

 

This recycled Pokeball Valentine box is made from items you already have laying around. Whip it up in time for your child's party.

Step 13

Cut out a hole in the top of the box with your box cutter for the Valentines to go through.

What is the BYM Journal?

The Build Your Marriage Journal is a joint journal that you and your spouse fill out together. You will find weekly prompts inspired by quotes that you and your spouse respond to separately. In addition to the weekly prompts, there are weekly actions for you to complete that take your journal prompts to the next level.

“This journal is a tool to help you and your spouse reopen and/or deepen the lines of communication between each other one week at a time. The prompts illicit unique responses to stimulate a more in-depth knowledge of you and your partner. It leads to a deeper understanding of how you both think and feel. It begins to connect you more with each other in a way that leads to understanding. This understanding helps to diminish fighting and when fights do occur they can be discussed openly and resolved more easily. All of this ultimately leads to increased intimacy both intellectually and physically with your spouse.”
