Cube Minecraft Party Invitations

These super simple invitations are great for your child’s Minecraft party!  Everything in the Minecraft world is squares or cubes, so why not make the party invitations the same way?

If you have a Minecraft fan, and haven’t seen this website, you need to go check it out!  There is so many blocks, characters and awesome stuff to check out.  I am thinking this is a great activity this summer to print them out and let the kids assemble them!

For these invitations you will need:

White card stock

printer

scissors

glue stick

First, pick your block from the above website.  Open it up in your computer program (I used my Silhouette program, but you could open it in Picasa, or word even.) and edit it by adding your party information to each section of the soon to be cube.  You may want to include the child’s name and age, address of the party, rsvp information, and any other pertinent information.

Once you have your cube with all of the details on it, you will want to print it and cut it out.  Be sure to cut around the white tabs, you will need those on there.

The greatest part of using my Silhouette program was that I was able to trace it, create it and then cut it with the machine instead of having to cut each one out with scissors.  It is really awesome!

Before you start gluing you want to fold all of your sides.  Fold all of the white tabs in and then fold where the sides of the blocks will be.

Now that you have it cut out you need to glue it.  Put glue stick on all of the white tabs and then begin assembling your block by folding and pressing the white tabs on the inside of the cube.

Now you just need to deliver your invitations!  If you need to mail these, you could mail them flat and then let the child assemble them when they get it.

Anti-Valentine, Valentine’s Day “Sucks” Bouquet of Suckers

If you are looking for a silly way to share your dislike for Valentine’s day with your other single friends, here is a cheap and easy idea!  All you need are some suckers and a note!  Don’t even get Valentine’s day suckers, because that would be supporting the very holiday you are avoiding, right?

So here you go, on a piece of paper write “Valentine’s day sucks, but you are great!” and add some suckers.  Easy enough right?  This would be a cute idea for your office or cubicle at work to share with your co-workers.  Obviously, you are writing the note so personalize or customize it to say whatever you would like.  For some reason I love puns for Valentine’s day and think that you can get away with silly ones even more than any other holiday, right?

I think this would be a great gift idea for friends, roommates, anyone you know that doesn’t have someone to share Valentine’s with or just doesn’t like the holiday in general.  A great way to share a laugh on a day that could be really miserable and lightens it up a little bit!

Ok, there are your printable valentines.  To use them, you will want to right click on the above images and save them to your computer.  That is it!

Once you have saved them you will want to go into another program to print them.  So,open up a program (I used Microsoft Publisher).  Open them, resize because right now they are a little large, and print!  I would recommend you shrink them to 4 to a page.  In fact, I think that you will want to leave them a little smaller than that, but not a lot.  So just leave a good space between the two.  I would give measurements,but Microsoft Publisher doesn’t have them so it isn’t much help!  If you don’t like that idea, or would like to just order them and save your ink, send them to a local store in a wallet size.  May be a little on the small size,but would still be a great option!

Print them off on card stock, cut them out and you are ready to attach your hair tie.  For one of my styles I just wrapped it around and for the other I taped it to the side.

There you have it,a super simple yet adorable idea for your child’s valentines!

Cupid Arrow Valentines, Quick, Easy, Great For Class Parties!

It is that time of year again, time to get those Valentine’s ready for your child’s class.  These are a great option, with very little work and inexpensive as can be!

You will need:

Skewers

Heart candy ( I used Palmer’s chocolate ones)

Paper

Hot glue

Begin by poking your skewer in the top of the heart candy.  Doesn’t have to go in very far, just enough to secure it.  After you have done that begin warming your hot glue gun.

Cut the paper into diamond shape like so.

Once you have cut the paper into diamonds, you will want to cut the outer edge to give it a fringe.  Just like the top of an arrow.

I realize that on the one I took photos of I messed up and cut the one side upside down.  Oops!  Oh well, it still looks cute, and the kids will probably not even notice!

Now you want to hot glue that on to your skewer.  Use a thin line of glue to prevent it from showing and squeezing out the sides.

That is it!  This would be great to tie a tag with a saying around the middle to personalize for each child.  Or keep it simple like I did and make them generic so that your child can hand them out to whomever!  I love that these are cute, and more fun then a boxed card, yet still inexpensive and easy to throw together.

Football Party Ideas, Quick and Easy Football water bottles #FootBall #party #FootBallFood, #FootBallRecipesMy 13 year old LOVES football, he wants to watch it, play it and talk about it as often as possible.  We had a game day party for our local college team when they played their bowl game. I decided to make some “fun drinks”, he loved them.  They were so easy to make and really helped create the game day feel to our party.

To make these you will need:

Cut the lunch bags in half to create two long skinny rectangles. Wrap them around the water bottle and glue the ends together with the hot glue.  Wrap with jute twine and tie a knot in the top.  Take the paint markers and draw the “laces” to make it look like a football.
