DIY Rainbow Loom Charm Valentines with Free Printables


My tween daughter recently started making all sorts of charms with her Rainbow Loom with the many tutorials online. Over the holidays, she made me a cute snowflake charm and I attached it to the pencil that I keep at my computer desk. My daughter makes these charms and since they stretch and loop around just about anything, she has charms attached to her backpack, her purse and her pencil case. She also makes them for friends at school.

I thought that Rainbow Loom charm valentines would be a cute idea for tweens since most are no longer buying the character valentines. There are many different types of Rainbow Loom charms and some are easy and others more complicated. If you are making them for the whole class, I suggest choosing an easier design or your tween can make them for siblings, neighbors or just for their close friends as something extra special. Some of the fun ones that I have seen are flowers, hearts, mustaches, animals. [Read more...]

It’s no secret that my favorite crafting toy is my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine. With some inspiration from Pinterest, I decided to make this really pretty,  floating glass ornament. I bought some plain, glass ornaments from Hobby Lobby. I used my Cameo to cut a piece of one of those clear transparency sheets from the office supply store. It has a notch at the top to hold it into place. I cut Santa’s Sleigh out of black vinyl and applied it to my transparency insert. I rolled up my transparency and tucked it inside my ornament, and then added some fun snowflakes from the craft store. To give you an idea of how detailed the Cameo can cut, the vinyl is only 3/4 of an inch tall!   [Read more...]
