I’m excited to be sharing my first craft project of 2015! Christmas is over and soon it will be time for all things Valentine’s Day. To kick off my Valentine’s Day crafts, I’m sharing a Scratch-off Valentine’s Day Lunch Box Jokes Printable. Pack these Valentine’s Day jokes in a lunch box, hide them in their backpacks, or any other spot to give your kids a fun surprise.
Valentine’s Day Lunch Box Jokes
Valentine’s Day Lunch Box Jokes Printable
Red metallic paint
Paint palette or disposable dish for mixing paint
To create these fun scratch-off Valentine’s Day lunch box notes, print out both pages of the Valentine’s Day Lunch Box Jokes on white cardstock. To make the scratch-off paint, mix together 1 tablespoon red metallic paint with 1 1/2 teaspoons of dish liquid (I used Dawn) in the paint palette. Place contact paper over the heart template and cut along the heart template lines. Set aside the template. Next, with the nonadhesive side facing up, tape down the corners of the paper to the work surface (I painted on a piece of parchment paper). Paint on a thin layer of paint with the foam brush and let it dry. Paint on two more layers of paint, letting the paint dry between coats.
Alternative – If you don’t want to paint, try using washi tape over the contact paper and using it as a peel away.
Take the heart template and place on top of the painted contact paper. Use four small pieces of tape and attach the template and contact paper together at the edges. Following the template, cut out the hearts. Once all the hearts are cut out, peel off the backing of the contact paper and place over the lunch box note hearts. Using a scissors or paper-cutter, cut out all the note cards. Once completed, you will have 10 scratch-off Valentine’s Day lunch box jokes*, 3 coupons(use for special treats or free chore days), 2 mini games, and 3 additional lunch notes.
Happy early Valentine’s Day crafting! What will you be packing in your Valentine’ Day lunch?
