Temporary Tattoos: Not your average decorating tool!
June 28th, 2013
We all know how great a temporary tattoo looks on your skin, but have you ever wondered what other trouble you can get into using a temporary tattoo? These tips and tricks will help you take ordinary items from drab to fab in a matter of minutes. Whether you are hoping to spruce up a party, or you are simply looking for a new way to entertain the kids in the bathtub, we have a temporary tattoo for that!
All of these projects are as easy as 1-2-3
- Apply the tattoo to the surface you wish to have it on (don’t forget to peel off the plastic!)
- Wet the tattoo with a damp cloth or paper towel and press down for at least 10-15 seconds.
- Gently peel the back away from tattoo and admire your extraordinary work!
Decorate Your Party Balloons- Balloons… ah yes everyone loves a good bunch of balloons right? Why not jazz them up a bit with temporary tattoos! By choosing temporary tattoos that fit the theme of your party or the personality of the special person receiving the balloons you can create a custom item that most people have never seen before. This is a great way to put a little extra effort into making someone feel very special!
Create One of a Kind Dinnerware - Have you ever bought a simple plastic dish set for a party, and thought “Man, I wish these were cooler!” Well we have just the thing! Adding temporary tattoos to plastic party ware is an easy way to add the unique and different element you want to your party! If you have a little princess who loves our Disney Princess tattoos, or a mini Tony Stark who thinks Iron Man and our Marvel tattoos are the greatest, this idea is for you! Decorate plates, cups, and even serving bowls with tattoos fitting your party theme! You could even leave the tattoos out and let the kids decorate their own plates!
Decorate Windows Quickly and Easily - Ever wanted to decorate your windows, but didn’t want the mess of window paints? Temporary tattoos are the answer! You can add awesome designs, your favorite characters, or even specific theme tattoos to give your windows flair! Have a little one who thinks coloring on the walls is a fun pastime? Fear not, arm your little one with some temporary tattoos and an empty window and let them run wild! These tattoos are simple to remove, and will not damage the windows at all!
Use Tattoos as a Fun Bathtime Activity- Is your child’s bath time a little boring? Bath paints and crayons can be a lot of fun, but boy do they make a mess! Temporary tattoos can liven up even the most boring bath time and, if you use your children’s favorite characters, they are sure to love this idea. The tattoos will stick to the tub, the walls, and of course your child! This is a great idea if you have fussy kids who hate tubby time. Tell them that if they get in the bath they can tattoo themselves and the tub! This special treat is sure to get your child in the tub to scrub-a-dub-dub in no time!
Make your electronics Stand Out From the Crowd- If you are anything like me, you get tired of your cell phone case in a matter of days! What if there was a different way to customize your mobile device and really make it your own? Adding temporary tattoos to the back of your phone will give it that customization you are looking for without making it permanent. You can change the tattoo out depending on your mood or the occasion, and you will always have a perfectly unique design to show off to your friends. This will also work on portable game devices, computers, and tablets!
