Lunchbox notes are all the rage these days. You see printables for them all over the place, and while they’re cute, they are totally generic. There are other moms popping those same notes in their child’s lunchbox. Take a stand for originality and check out this super easy tutorial to make your own DIY lunchbox notes, straight from the heart and as unique as you and your child! I’ve partnered with Pentel for this post, however all opinions are my own.
DIY lunchbox notes are super easy to make. You just need to get a little creative. What’s great is that these are easy enough for even a beginner. I am far from a graphic artist and mine came out pretty cute, so I’m sure that you will be able to make these DIY lunchbox notes too!
It’s really all in the pen because a good pen makes or breaks the project at hand. I was recently introduced to these super awesome Pentel POP Gel Pens and they are what actually inspired this project.
Pentel POP Gel Pens are really neat because they are sparkly, milky and neon so they’re really fun to make projects with, and are perfect for these DIY lunchobox notes. The Milky and Sparkle pens even write on black paper, so I totally had to share that because it’s such fun!
Each of these type of pens are unique and fun in their own ways.
- Sparkle Pop gives a “Pop” of shimmering color with its sparkling, ultra-glittery iridescent ink. The Ink looks different when writing on black or white paper so it’s like having two colors in one.
- Milky Pop gives a “Pop” of pizzazz with milky pastel ink colors that contrast well with dark colored paper, making your writing and artwork stand out.
- Solar Pop gives a “Pop” of bright neon color that glows bright under a blacklight.
