Like most girls in America, my oldest two are currently obsessed with their Rainbow Looms. So naturally we needed a Rainbow Loom Valentine that they can give classmates. I am not sure whether I was inspired by Brave, Katniss or Cupid, but my girls were keen on the bow-and-arrow motif too.
I actually thought the task of creating enough bracelets for each member of the class would be daunting, but my nine year old whipped them out in a single Saturday, and I was more than happy to have her occupied.
Print and cut out enough of the Rainbow Loom Valentines templates. Attach the Rainbow Loom bracelets using one of these methods:
1 :: EASIER. Cut a straight slit from the right side of the card into each of the circles on the top and bottom of the bow. Slide on the bracelet. Depending on the thickness of the cardstock, you may wish to tape along the backside of the slits.
2 :: NEATER. Use a craft knife to cut an X slightly large than the circles on the top and bottom of the bow. Unclip the rubber band bracelets and thread through the holes. It is easiest to use the end that still has a clip on it as a sort of needle and push from back to front on the top circle. Then take the clipped end back through the bottom circle from front to back. Reattach the clip to the loose end, and you’re done.
