I do love Valentine's Day! What better than a day full of hearts and flowers and hugs, right? This year I am especially excited, because The Bug and I came up with the idea together.
He got a Rainbow Loom from Santa this year, and I can't determine who is more addicted to it. Him or me! So it seemed obvious what we should give this year to his classmates.
The Bug picked out the colors of the bands and beads we would use to make them extra special and we got to work.
Here's everything you will need: Rainbow Loom Bands, Clips to make them into a bracelet, beads (optional), and some craft paper. This is what the boys and girls bracelets look like. We chose a fishtail style. (Check out this website for lots of tutorials using the rainbow loom)
We did a little photo shoot and I took pictures of The Bug holding his wrists together like a heart and then took my image over to Pic Monkey. I made the picture black and white with the red accent heart using the Focal Black and White Option.
I added the font "Valentine, you've got me wrapped around your heart" using Pic Monkey as well. I saved it and had it printed out. You could print on your own home printer with 4X6 photo paper, but mine was acting possessed.
By putting a couple of cuts using a utility knife on either side of his wrists in the picture, I slid the bracelet in each side. Now, it looks like he's wearing the bracelet! I added a piece of cardstock to the back just to hold everything together.
We are ready for giving!! An easy DIY Valentine for little $$!! Plus, the bonus of some quality time with The Bug making the bracelets! So fun! Maybe
Thank you so much for coming on over today! I'm so glad you are here! Have a great week!
