Pokemon Valentine’s Day Card Pokeball and Card

Pokemon cards

Hello Pokefans! My 8 year old son was on the hunt for Pokemon cards so we took a peek as we were out and about last weekend. We found a lot of fun cards but no Pokemon. So I told him we may need to make our own. So for 2 days my brain turned until I came up with this idea.

All you need is red, white and black construction paper (you can get 2 cards from one sheet of each color), scissors and a glue gun. We actually found pokemon cards at the dollar store but you get 3 to a pack for a dollar so you can buy several there or purchase pokemon cards at a bulk price and save in the end.

I found a small planting pot that became the perfect size for the card. You want the card to end up at almost double the width of a pokemon card that will slide in the pocket you create.

I cut enough red circles out at the full size (we need 26 cards for his class). I then cut 13 white circles then cut each circle in half to be the bottom of the pokeball.

I measured out a good width of black papers in the correct length using the red balls I cut as a size guide. Then cut 26 black circles (I actually used the lid of an Excedrin bottle for center black circle-hey! it worked). Then cut my own smaller 26 white circles. Now I have all I need to start glueing.

I simply lined the inner curved edge of the white half-circle with hot glue in thin line, leaving the straight edge free of glue (this is your pocket for the pokemon card). I then glued the black strip to the white paper of the pokeball by lining lower edge only so that the top edge is free with the pocket. Then I glued the black circle in the center and smaller white circle on top in layers so you get what is pictured.

Stuff a Pokemon card in the open pocket between large red circle and white half circle and you have a Pokemon Pokeball Valentine card that is sure to be a hit. We wrote ‘I CHOOSE YOU’ with a fine tip sharpie, but you can get creative there. He added his ‘From:…’ on the back of the card.
