This weekend I had big plans to get all the boys valentines cards, treats and card boxes done ... BUT. Well let's say a certain science project for Cole's class to make a Lava Lamp and the lovely display board that had to be done also took up MOST of my weekend! Who knew a kids science project for a third grader could be so freaking time consuming. That project I'll show next week. This week I need to get the valentines done and posted before the actual date!
So needless to say I only got one done and it was the easiest of all the things I am going to do! Jeez somedays I think I really need to rein it in ... oh yeah who am I kidding :).
I of course saw these on Pinterest and had to make them! The boys LOVE all things Star Wars (oh yes boys after my and my dads heart). I saw these May the Force be with You Cards on Stitch Creations.
She was so sweet to actually give you a free printable in color or non color (click either link above to see the printables and her son that she actually took a picture of to make him part of the card ... very cool)! I picked the color version and printed on some cream colored card stock paper. I took my creative memories cutter and cut them down and used the blade to cut the whole for the glow stick. It can be done with a pair of scissors also if needed (or a razor blade). This really is so simple but what kid would not love a freaking glow stick card! NOW one thing I learned is when you shove the glow stick in it will break which kind of is uncool when you give the card with a dead stick. SO you use a glow stick that is broke to put threw to make the hole wide enough then take it out and add the new one. I found this was the easiest to do, I did it for all the cards and only ended up with the one dead one!
This is going to be such a hit with Cole's friends, plus it gave me an idea of what to do for Cole's birthday invites that of course is going to be Star Wars themed :).
Hope you all had a great weekend and for you who are stuck in the storm my prayers are with you!
