Valentine's Card box - #Unicorn #BeaDandelion

When my little girl wants something, she gets it! Just kidding. No she doesn't. But when Mommy wants it too, then it is a different story.

Check out this adorable Unicorn Valentine's Day Card box we I made!

All you need is:
  • Tissue box
  • Tissue paper
  • Modge Podge
  • Glitter
  • Paint for the horn
  • Construction paper
  • Card stock
  • Googly eyes
  • Hot glue gun
  • More Glitter
  • Some form of ribbon, some jewels, maybe eyelashes
  • *I used pastels on card stock to make the rainbow puke
Make sure the box is covered with enough sheets of tissue paper that you can not see the pattern underneath it. I left the back open for the cards to be inserted. I mixed glitter with matte Modge Podge and covered everything but the bottom of the box.

That glue gun is your friend. After covering the box, form the horn with card stock, glue it, paint it, let it dry, cover in Modge Podge (I used iridescent Modge Podge), sprinkle in glitter. You will want to hot glue it to the top of the box and be ready to add the streamers.

The ears, eyes, and nose are all construction paper. Hot glue everything. Add false eyelashes.

The rainbow vomit was an after thought by my 5 year old. I didn't want it to look like it was coming out of the nose, but I also didn't want to make a fake smile to attach to this otherwise real looking unicorn. Making a nose shows that the rainbow is not snot, and is coming from under the snout.

I must say that my little kid is very thrilled with the final product.
