If you haven’t already guessed, we love Adventure Time! So, (like the crazy person I am) I suggested to Gunner that we use the papercraft Beemo from the Cartoon Network website that he loves so much. He said, “Yeah! And we can make him red!” … and it all spiraled from there.
I adapted the pattern so there would be a box-style flap opening at the top, made Beemo red, put a “to” and “from” on the back in a readily-available area, added some hearts where Gunner wanted them, and the Adventure Time logo on the lid for good measure.
Last night was spent cutting and folding Valentine’s-themed BMO boxes and filling them with candy.
Twenty-four of them.
I now have blisters and papercuts. Worth it. Gunner is happy and my A.D.D. hyperfocus has been satiated for another day. Grabbed some quick photos of them this morning (I actually remembered to photograph one of the cool porjects I finished!) and packed them up and off to school.
I hope they are received well! Gunner has one of his own, too, of course — to add to his three other Beemo papercrafts of varying sizes. They’re like a little family now.
I know this is a really last-minute Valentine’s post, but if you’re looking for a quick and fun Valentine for the Adventure Time fan(s) in your life, you can download a pritable PDF of the box by clicking the image below!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
