DIY Custom Lunch Box

The awesome vinyl in this post was provided by Expressions Vinyl. All opinions are my own.

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

This year is my daughter's first year of school and she's so excited! When we were making a list of supplies she'd need for school, she was adamant that she needed have her very own lunch box with her name on it. No problem, kid! With a little help from my handy Cricut and some fun colored vinyl from Expressions Vinyl, I knew we could whip up a custom lunch box in no time (and you can, too!)!

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

First, we needed a lunch box to work with. I found this really great metal one at LunchBoxes.com (not sponsored). It's really great quality and super affordable. Even better - it's completely blank so you can easily customize it!

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

As far as vinyl goes, Expressions Vinyl carries TONS of adhesive vinyl options in multiple colors. My daughter and I spent a long time deciding, but finally came down to choosing (my personal favorite) glitter vinyl in melon/pink, white, and purple. The glitter effect is pretty much perfect, and you don't have to worry about making a mess with this stuff. The quality is fantastic, and the colors are always bright and vibrant.

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

After uploading my designs into Design Space, I was ready to cut. The Cricut is pretty genius with the settings knob on the machine to help you save time and vinyl mistakes. Since glitter vinyl is usually a little thicker than traditional vinyl, I usually place the setting at the dot just after "Vinyl" OR change it to the "Custom" setting and just choose "glitter vinyl" from the menu.

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

Once you've got your vinyl placed on the mats and the settings where you need them, simply press "GO!" and watch the magic happen. The vinyl was cut perfectly and done in just a few minutes. I really do love my Explore machine oh so much, and it has saved me time and money on so many projects!! If you're shopping for a new machine, I highly recommend the Cricut.

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

Before adding the vinyl, clean the lunch box with a soft rag or paper towel and alcohol to remove any debris or smudges. Normally you would weed out the vinyl and then apply it to your project with transfer paper. Instead, peel the vinyl from the backing and placed it on the lunch box like a sticker for the front, back, and sides. For the sides, I cut one long pink glitter piece about 1.5" x 22" and wrapped it around the entire side of the lunch box for some extra color. The front and back pieces (purple/white) measured about 6.75" x 5.25" and I centered them on each side.

My best tip is to work slow, and use a scraper tool as you go to work out any air bubbles.

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

To apply the name and the Pinkie Pie design (found at DoodleCraft), weed out the vinyl and apply with transfer paper or use my money-saving vinyl transfer Glad Press'n Seal Hack!!

DIY Custom Lunch Box at artsyfartsymama.com

Peel the transfer paper or Glad Press'n Seal off, and your new custom lunch box is ready to use! My daughter can't wait to show it off at school this week and it fits her personality perfectly! When creating with vinyl, the only limits are your imagination.

What kinds of designs would your kids like on their custom lunch boxes? While you're thinking about it, fill out the Rafflecopter form below to enter to win a $50 gift card to Expressions Vinyl! Good luck!


Free Printable After School Checklist

I received product in exchange for this post. All opinions shared are 100% my own. #HSMinc

In an effort to get the school year off to a good start, I know I need to stay organized. To help with that, I've created a fun and FREE Printable After School Checklist as a reminder for kids to stay on task when the school day is done.

Free Printable After School Checklist at artsyfartsymama.com #HSMinc #FoilAlltheThings

To personalize the print, I decided to let my daughter help add foil with the Minc. The Minc machine does require some adult supervision, but kids can definitely have a ton of fun turning laser printed items (both pre-made or custom designs) into a beautifully foiled creation in just seconds. You can find the Minc starter kit and accessories at Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann, as well as at some local stores and online shops.

To create the beautiful foil look on the checklist, set the Minc heat setting to 3 or 4. Then cut a piece of Minc foil to cover the sections. We used teal for the top and pink for the check boxes and the list. Open the carrier sheet and place the checklist face up inside the sheet. Carefully lay the foil over the paper (color side up). Carefully lay the top of the carrier sheet down over the print and smooth it out with your hand.

Tip: Sometimes static on the carrier sheet can cause the foil to shift, so just work slowly and try to keep everything in place as best you can.

Free Printable After School Checklist at artsyfartsymama.com #HSMinc #FoilAlltheThings

Place the carrier sheet into the Minc until the rollers grab it to pull it through the machine. Let it run all the way through, then carefully open the carrier sheet. Remove the paper and foil, then slowly peel the foil off the paper. Now your after school checklist is foiled and looking gorgeous! It really is as simple as that.

Free Printable After School Checklist at artsyfartsymama.com #HSMinc #FoilAlltheThings

The checklist is now ready for use! The color options are endless when it comes to using foil. Just use your imagination and be creative! As you can see, the checklist includes basic reminders for most children in school, such as: unpacking a lunch box (for obvious reasons), unpacking a backpack so important papers and reminders aren't missed, eating a snack, doing homework and reading (you can add however many minutes in the blank), plus getting their chores done at home. To help things go a little smoother in the mornings, kids can get clothes and shoes ready for the next day, and getting to bed on time on a school night is a must!

Free Printable After School Checklist at artsyfartsymama.com #HSMinc #FoilAlltheThings

Place the checklist into a frame behind the glass to keep the foil looking beautiful and use a dry erase marker to check things off the list as they get done each day. The marker wipes clean off the glass with a cloth or use a little alcohol or glass cleaner when it gets really dirty.

For those who don't have a Minc machine (yet), I've also created a free printable after school checklist in primary colors. Put in a frame, and it's ready to use!

For something a little different, I've also created a bright colored free printable after school checklist.

Disney Descendants Slumber Party

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

My daughter and I like to plan a fun girl's night at least once a month. My daughter often plans our fun nights together with a theme, which usually include a movie, dinner, and some kind of activity. This last month, we decided to have a Descendants Slumber Party and watch the new Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendants, which released on The Disney Channel and on DVD at Walmart on July 31st.

With Descendants being all about the next generation of villains, we were most looking forward to seeing one of our favorite villains, Maleficent and her daughter, Mal with her awesome purple hair. The movie is fun for kids and parents alike with catchy songs, nostalgic characters, and parents will definitely have a laugh watching the villains attempt to parent their rebel teens and try to keep evil alive by pressuring their kids to follow in their footsteps!

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

To get our party planning on, we headed to Walmart and purchased The Disney Channel's Descendants DVD and the official movie soundtrack. The DVD was easy to spot in the new movie endcap display, and the soundtrack was featured in the hot music section.

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

Since every party needs a few guests, we checked out the Disney Descendants fashion dolls to watch their movie with us! Featured in the toys section next to the Frozen merchandise, you can find the main characters like Mal and Evie, along with some of their friends like Jane, Lonnie and Audrey all in their stylish clothes and coronation dresses!

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

Along with the Descendants DVD and the official movie soundtrack, we came across Disney Descendants fashion dolls that came in a two pack that included Carlos & Evie, and Ben & Mal.

Now that we found all we needed for our party, we needed to work on the "slumber" part, which means sleeping bags for the dolls to sleep in! Don't worry if you are new to sewing - these sleeping bags are SUPER easy and are a great project for beginners.

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

1. First, you'll need some fabric. Flannel, fleece, and cotton all work well. Flannel and fleece are soft and fluffy on their own, but since cotton fabric is thinner, I like to add a piece of flannel in between to make it a little fluffier. The seam allowance is 1/4 inch.

Cut 2 pieces 13 inches x 6 inches
Cut 2 pieces 11 inches x 6 inches
*If using cotton - cut 1 piece flannel 10.75 inches x 6 inches

2. Line the two fabric pieces right sides together (*for the smaller piece, add the flannel to the outside of the two pieces). Sew along three sides of each rectangle (as shown above with dotted lines), making sure to backstitch at each end.

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

3. Cut the corners at an angle (but not through the thread!), then flip the rectangles right side out. Use something pointy (but not sharp) to poke the corners out. Press the seams flat with an iron. Grab a small handful of batting and stuff it into the end of the larger rectangle piece. This will make the pillow!

4. Measure down about 2 inches and mark with pins or a water soluble marker. Squish all the batting into the end of the fabric, and sew along the line you just marked. Even out the pillow batting by squishing it around a little.

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

5. Line up the unfinished bottom edges of both pieces and pin in place. Sew along the three edges starting at one side (either side will be fine), but stop when you get to about 2 inches from the end of the other side (as shown above). Backstitch at both ends.

6. Cut the corners and flip the sleeping bag so the seams are all on the inside. Poke the corners, and now the sleeping bag is ready to use!!

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

The Disney Descendants fashion dolls fit perfectly in the sleeping bags (as well as most dolls this size). The sleeping bags come together really quick, so it's fun to create multiple bags for all the dolls you own!!

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

We chose sparkly fabrics in colors to match each character, and got a little more creative making something black, white and red for Carlos (son of Cruella de Vil)! His sleeping bag was sewn the same way, but I only cut one size rectangle of each fabric pattern so that the inside and outside of the sleeping bag are different.

Disney Descendants Slumber Party with Doll Sleeping Bag Tutorial at artsyfartsymama.com

It was such a fun night of watching Descendants (complete with popcorn and treats, of course), and playing some Disney Villain Bingo to honor the parents of the Descendants characters! My daughter has since been reenacting the movie with all the dolls, and having them sing and dance to the soundtrack.

I'd love to hear if you've seen the movie and what you thought! If you haven't seen it yet, I'd love to know who your favorite villain is!

Free Printable Disney Villain Bingo

Bingo is one of my daughter's favorite games to play, and also one of my favorite kinds of printables for me to put together for all of you! With Halloween creeping up on us, I decided to share a Disney and Pixar Villain Bingo just in time for you to start planning for your next Halloween Villains party, or to play with friends and family just for fun!

Free Printable Disney Villain Bingo at artsyfartsymama.com

This Villain Bingo includes all of your favorite villains from both Disney and Pixar movies. From the very first Evil Queen to the latest Prince Hans, there's at least one villain that we all love to hate! In the bingo set, there are multiple bingo cards in different order, so it's easy to just print and use for your parties. It's fun for every age to play, and the calling cards include the names of the characters and what movies they're from in case you don't know who they are.

(Set includes 8 bingo cards and calling pieces in a single PDF file)

Free Printable Disney Villain Bingo at artsyfartsymama.com

The blank set works a little differently. You get one bingo card with empty spaces (except for the "free" spot). Then, you print and cut out the bingo pieces so you can assemble the bingo cards yourself! Just glue the pieces in place, and you're ready to play! This is a great option for little hands that want to be creative, or if you have a larger group of people and don't want multiple cards that are the same. The blank bingo set includes all the same characters as the full set, but you can create your own bingo card setup.

(Set includes one blank bingo card, bingo pieces, and calling pieces in a single PDF file)

Game Instructions
1. Pick some kind of object to mark your squares or use a dry erase marker.
2. Give each player a Bingo card and markers (or put your own together with the blank set). Have each player put a marker over the free space.
3. Have one person choose a calling card and say it out loud. Each player will cover that item on their card with a marker. Once a player has 5 squares covered in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally), they call out "BINGO!" and win the game!

Some things you should know before downloading:
*Artsy-Fartsy Mama printables are for PERSONAL USE ONLY.
*You may NOT modify, re-sell, redistribute, or claim the design as your own.
*Please do not remove the credits/watermarks.
*If you share this on the internet, credit must be given to Artsy-Fartsy Mama & linked back to this post.

To lengthen the life of the prints, I would recommend printing the Bingo cards and calling pieces on cardstock and laminating or putting in a plastic page. All files are 8.5x11 inches and put together in a single PDF format. Have fun!! Would love to hear from you if you play using my printable!

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci!

The fun in this post was provided by DohVinci. All opinions are my own.

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

Did you know that August is Art Appreciation Month? My daughter loves getting every chance she can to create, and one of her new favorite ways to add her own works of art to our home is by using DohVinci! From the makers of Play-Doh, DohVinci is a colorful and fun design compound that sticks to a variety of surfaces using an innovative Styler tool. With so many colors and application techniques, the creative possibilities are nearly endless!

We're excited to show you how it all works and get you excited to create your own works of art with DohVinci, too!

Hasbro's DohVinci Brand Recreates Iconic Paintings for Art Appreciation Month

Before we get to the tutorial, I wanted to show you these amazing painting recreations! Hasbro’s DohVinci is celebrating this month by sharing six incredibly detailed recreations of famous works of art - all made out of 100% DohVinci design compound! The collection features classic paintings “Girl with a Pearl Earring” by Johannes Vermeer, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” by Georges Seurat, “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo da Vinci, “The Starry Night” by Vincent van Gogh, “The Scream” by Edvard Munch, and “Sunflowers” by Vincent van Gogh.

DohVinci Deluxe Styler | www.artsyfartsymama.com

The DohVinci Deluxe Styler set is a great set for beginning to create with DohVinci! The set includes the Deluxe Styler, 4 design tips, 3 Deco Pop tubes and inspiration guide to get you started.

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

First, we started our design with the Deluxe Styler set and a small piece of MDF. You can create your designs on multiple surfaces, including wood, cardboard, paper, Duct tape and more! Just make sure the surface you choose to work on is clean and smooth for best results.

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

Loading the Styler couldn't be easier. My daughter did the entire process on her own, and it was so much fun! First, she wanted to create stamps. Remove the cap from the Deco Pop tube, and twist the design tip of your choice (shown is a butterfly) and place the tube in the Styler. Now you're ready to design your artwork!

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

Hold the Styler tip flat against the wood and press the Styler slowly until you see the end of the design tip filled with compound. Let go and pull the Styler straight up, and now you've got a fun 3D stamp! If you mess up, no problem! Just peel it up and start again! We created butterflies, flowers, stars and hearts in all the different colors all over the wood.

DohVinci Color Mixer | www.artsyfartsymama.com

Once she finished stamping, she wanted to mix up her own colors with the DohVinci Color Mixer set! The set includes the base, center post, wheel, plunger, pop-up art board, Styler, 3 Deco Pop tubes, 1 empty tube, and inspiration guide.

DohVinci Color Mixer | www.artsyfartsymama.com

With this set, you can customize and refill your own multi-colored Deco Pop tubes for wild swirly effects! It's easy to use, and can hold up to six different color Deco Pop tubes. Remove the caps from the Deco Pop tubes, and place upside down in the turnable wheel. Then, place an empty tube with the caps removed into the bottom space. Then using the plunger, press down on the color above the empty tube and add some compound.

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

You'll need to press the compound down to really fill the tube. Add layers of color, or add colors side by side for different swirl and marble effects. Once the tube is full, add the top and bottom caps and it's ready to be used! You can refill the tubes again and again!

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

The flower on the top was made using the multi-color compound we mixed in the images above. You can see the pink and yellow compound marbled into the blue and really pops! The bottom flower is created with just the blue compound and a flower stamp for comparison. 

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

You can also use the Deco Pop tubes without the stamps to create 3D lines and embellishments. Load the tube into the Styler without the design tip, and it's ready to go. It takes a little practice, but it's really simple to do. For best results, keep your project on a flat table or surface. Make sure the Styler tip is touching the surface at an angle as you draw, and work slow.

If you make any mistakes or want to start over, simply wipe it off before it dries and try again!

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

Keep decorating until you are happy with your artwork and let it harden overnight* so you can hang it on your wall! 

*Drying time may take longer depending on the thickness of your design.

Create a Work of Art with DohVinci | www.artsyfartsymama.com

My daughter also designed this cute butterfly using some marbled DohVinci and stamps! You can find all kinds of inexpensive wood products like this at most craft stores that will work great for a DohVinci project. With Christmas coming up (I know, I know) this would make a great gift idea, and it's totally affordable!! DohVinci is available at most major toy retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com.
