To make the gift boxes add some pva glue to the acrylic paint and paint one half red and the other white, when dry paint a white circle on the top centre of the lids. With a black marker pen draw a thick line across the divide and around the circle to create the pokemon details. You could add clear varnish to avoid knock ad scratches.

To make the pokemon ball add PVA glue to the acrylic paints and paint one half white and one half red. When dry paint half a circle on to the red side. Connect the plastic ball together and with a black marker pen draw round the perimeter and around the circle. Again you could add a clear varnish to protect the ball from scratches. Both the box and ball can hold small toys.

You don't actually have to store pokemon toys inside (though it does look pretty neat).

Don't disappear yet! We still have a few more creative ideas up our sleeves:  

pokemon jars

Another idea we have attempted is by updating some glass jars by painting the lids with acrylic paint an adding marker pen detail. One of them we stuck a pokemon to the bottom of the jar and added heart sequins and water and baby oil inside to make a little shaker too.

Our last idea is making a pokemon paper plate bag, an ideal craft for a pokemon themed party don't you think? 


  • x3 paper plates
  • Red and white acrylic paint
  • Black marker pen
  • Stapler
  • Red ribbon
Papaer plate pokemon bag

To make our paper plate bag simply paint one half of one plate red and then cut in half, you will have to discard (recycle) the other half. On a full plate draw a line down the middle in pencil and then draw a round circle in the middle of it. Cut along the lines and only half of the circle. With a marker pen draw round the edge of the circle and and the lines. Staple the red plate to a plain white full plate and on the bottom staple the half white plate with fewer staples so it can open and close and be over the red side, Staple the two ends of the ribbon to each side of the plate.
